Viktoriiny vodopády nebo Mosi-oa-Tunya (anglicky Victoria Falls) jsou jedny z největších vodopádů na světě. Nacházejí se v jižní Africe na řece Zambezi na hranicích mezi Zambií a Zimbabwe.
Šířka vodopádu je 1800 m. Voda padá dolů z útesu vysokého 120 m do úzkého (130 m) a hlubokého (140 m) kaňonu v čediči. Místní obyvatelstvo vodopád nazývá voda, která hřmí, nebo duha. Průtoky v průběhu roku silně kolísají. Průměrný průtok je 1400 m³/s. Vodopády byly objeveny 16. listopadu 1855 skotským cestovatelem Davidem Livingstonem a nazvány podle britské královny Viktorie. V roce 1875 je prozkoumal český cestovatel Emil Holub, který je autorem jejich první mapy, která vyšla v cestopise Sedm let v jižní Africe. E. Holub je také autorem první samostatné publikace o Viktoriiných vodopádech – útlého šestnáctistránkového sešitku The Victoria Falls - a few pages from a diary of Emil Holub, M. D. (…), který v roce 1879 vyšel v jihoafrickém Grahamastownu (reprint v roce 2004).
