8. Victoria Falls Bridge, Zimbabwe/Zambia
The Zambezi River roars beneath the Victoria Falls Bridge, which links two countries: Zimbabwe and Zambia. On one side is Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and on the other, Livingstone, Zambia. A feat of Victorian design and engineering, it took just 14 months to build.
To press home its Victorian credentials, it was opened by Charles Darwin's son, George, in 1905. It's a road, railway and footway and a launch platform for thrilling bungee jumps. At 650-feet long and 420 feet above the river, it's a close second to the spectacular Victoria Falls (Mosi-oa-Tunya).
