Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe

The Victoria Falls ( Mosi-oa-Tunya )

are situated on the Zambezi River

on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

They are roughly 1.7km (1 mile) wide

and 128 metres ( 420ft ) high.

They are a remarkable spectacle

due to the narrow, slot-like gorge

into which the water plunges

allowing a face-on view of the falls.
