Looking for that perfect Instagram post? Then take a trip with Lightfoot Travel to one of these picture perfect waterfalls
Angel Falls, Venezuela
Canaima National Park is home to the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall. Tucked away in the jungle, this hard to reach waterfall still attracts tourists in their droves. It was named Angel Falls after the US pilot Jimmie Angel was the first person to fly over the falls. Disney fans might recognise it as the waterfall that inspired the film Up.
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
The waterfall that is on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe is home to the natural phenomenon the Devil’s Pool. Each year during the dry season an array of plucky swimmers take the plunge and swim to the edge of the falls. Not for the faint hearted.
Yosemite Falls, California
When the spring snow melts, the cascade is at its most powerful. Come August, the water just trickles down the rock face. To claim that perfect Instagram shot take the 11km Yosemite Falls Trail, which will give you a jawdropping view of the falls, Half Dome and the Sierra mountain range.
Horseshoe Waterfalls, Canada
One of three falls that form the Niagara Falls (alongside American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls), the 792 metre wide falls pumps out 2,271,247 liters per second. Even during the winter months, the falls never completely freezes. Ice climber Will Gadd managed to climb a section of it while the rest of the falls still powered down by his side.
Blue Nile Falls, Ethiopia
Four streams of water join together to create this picturesque cascade. It is known locally as Tis Abay, which means ‘great smoke’. It is 30km downstream from Bahir Dar and Lake Tana, making it one of Ethiopia’s biggest tourist attractions.
