HISTORY AND NAMES
- Also Known as: Mtarazi Falls
- Mutarazi Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall
The falls are commonly spelled without the "u" at the beginning of the name, however we've been informed by a local resident that spelling it with a "u" is the proper way, although we must note that the Zimbabwean Government has a national park called "Mtarazi Falls National Park" so the issue isn't necessarily cut and dried.
Mutarazi Falls is almost always claimed to drop just shy of 2500 feet in either one or two steps. Based on what we have uncovered, there is only one tier to the falls and though the rendering in Google Earth for this part of the world isn't terribly accurate, it appears physically impossible for this waterfall to be over 2000 feet tall. A study of Google Earth's elevation profile suggests that the 2499 foot figure often quoted would entail the entire elevation change from the lip of the plateau all the way to the floor of the Honde Valley.
