At what speed does the water travel over Victoria falls?

It is dumping about 38 thousand cubic feet per second on average. In metric measures, about 1100 tons of water per second on average, but peaking at 6000 tons per second. Thats a lot of water. The average 18 wheeler road tanker carries 30 tons, so queue up and empty 200 of them every second and you'll match the peak flow.

The Zambezi River is a major river with a large catchment so the flow remains high in all but the most serious drought conditions.
