The top 5 most stunning waterfalls in Africa:

5. Victoria Falls - Zambia & Zimbabwe

Feast your eyes on this magnificent world wonder and watch in awe as the water gushes and plummets its way down the steep canyon and cliffs. These falls caress the edge of the Congo River. Access the breath-taking view from either Zambia or Zimbabwe's side - opt to stay in a cosy and snug riverside accommodation to soak in the full experience and wake up to the sound of the rushing water. 

4. Ouzoud Falls - Morocco 

Visit Morocco's tallest waterfall which cascades down from a height of 110m long. Discover the serenity offered by the valleys and lush greenery of the falls by travelling to the mountain region of Azilal - just a few hours drive from Marrakech.

3. Maletsunyane Falls - Lesotho

This incredible waterfall looks like it could easily be a scene cut from the fictional realm of Wakanda. It marks the highest single-drop fall in Africa - sitting pretty at an impressive 192m tall. These falls are but a convenient hour out of the Southern African town of Semonkong, which actually got its name from the waterfall. Semonkong, translates into 'Site of Smoke'

2. Lisbon Falls - South Africa

Stick a pin in the highest falls Mpumalanga has to offer. You're likely to stumble across other natural beauts and landmarks in the area, like 'God's Window' or 'Lone Creek'. You can be sure to go chase this waterfall in the Panorama Route area of SA, wherein there are more waterfalls than anywhere else in Southern Africa.

1. Wli Falls - Ghana

Be sure to swing by the highest waterfall in Ghana - it is also the tallest waterfall in the West African region. Learn about the native plants and fruits; and if you're feeling particularly brave, you can even opt to do hike up the falls. Locally, the falls are known as the 'Agumatsa Waterfalls' which translates into 'Allow Me to Flow' - and you can find this flowing beaut situated a cosy 20km from the Volta Region of Ghana.
