An aerial, southern-facing view of Victoria Falls along the Zambia/Zimbabwe border.
More than a mile wide at the mouth of the falls, the Zambezi River plummets 354 feet, spilling more than 38,000 cubic feet of water per second into the gorges below. Upstream, the river meanders on the surface of the earth - like water spilled on a countertop. The falls are a dramatic shift of unrestricted flow to deep, guiding rock walls. Mist rising from the falls during the rainy season can be seen from more than 30 miles away.
The fourth largest river in Africa, the Zambezi River flows 2,200 miles from Angola to Mozambique, where it empties into the Indian Ocean.
