@wesley91: The Devil’s Cataract was named for the adjacent island in the river in which the local tribes used to perform sacrificial ceremonies. When missionaries came to the area, they referred to the tribal ceremonies as “devilish” and that is where the name came from. The Devil’s Cataract falls are 70 meters high.
The Main Falls are 93 meters high and are the largest of the waterfalls with the most spectacular view.
Horseshoe Falls, which is 95 meters high, actually resembles the shape of a horseshoe. This is where the least amount of water is. Horseshoe Falls is also the first to dry up, usually occurring in October or November.
Rainbow Falls is the highest point of all the rest of the falls. They are 108 meters high. On clear days, a rainbow can usually be seen here.
The Eastern Cataract falls are the 2nd highest falls and they are completely on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls. However, you can get a spectacular view of the falls from the Zimbabwean side. The Eastern Cataract falls are 101 meters high.
