The waterfall is a part of two nationwide parks, Mosi-oa-Tunya Nationwide Park in Zambia and the Victoria Falls Nationwide Park in Zimbabwe, and are one of many largest vacationer sights in southern Africa.
Victoria Falls had been declared a World Heritage Website by Unesco, in 1989, defending an space of 8,780 ha.
Since 2010, they're built-in into the Kavango-Zambeze Conservation Space.
