When you think of a waterfall, more often than not you imagine a large cliff overflowing with raging water. The first to appear on our list doesn't give you that image, but it is raging with water. As the 10th-widest waterfall, Inga Falls spans 3,000 feet in the lower Congo River.
The water flows here at a rate of about 1.5 million cubic feet per second — for comparison, Niagara Falls averages 84,760.
In 1972, the area became a hydroelectric dam, and it continues to supply electricity to the Katanga province today.
