Kaieteur Falls is the world’s largest single drop waterfall by the volume of water flowing over it, and was discovered by the British geologist Charles Barrington Brown in 1870. According to a Patamona Indian legend, Kaieteur Falls was named for Kai, a chief who acted to save his people by paddling over the falls in an act of self-sacrifice to Makonaima, the great spirit.
