I don’t know anyone that is not captivated with the beauty of waterfalls and coming from Africa I’m proud to boast that not only do we have Victoria Falls, which at 1 700 m is the longest singular fall in the world but we also have the Tugela Falls, with a drop of 950m holds the title of the second highest waterfall in the world. Each has its own beauty and fascination, but nothing could be more impressive that the 275 or more individual cascades of Iguazu Falls.
The horseshoe and step design of the falls, gives it its unique character with its focal point being the famous Devil’s Throat or Garganta del Diablo, where 14 falls plunge 80 m in a 260-degree fall. The combined flow of these 275 individual falls is the largest of any waterfall in the world. In the rainy season, there can be 12,740 cubic metres of water cascading over the falls per second. For those that don’t know, Iguazu Falls acts a natural border between Argentina and Brazil, beautiful from both sides offering amazing walkways that will take you close and even over the falls. Albeit that the falls are powerful, boat trips will also get you close to the cascading water showing you their true beauty.
