Victoria Falls gorge. Satellite image of the gorge carved by the Victoria Falls. These falls (seen at centre left, white foam) are on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The waterfall is formed as the Zambezi River falls into a 100-metre deep chasm. This chasm is a crack in the rock that was widened by the river. The zig-zag of chasms at right are where the waterfall used to be before it eroded a new chasm in the rock. The waterfall is slowly moving to the left as it erodes successive chasms in the rock. The Zambezi River is seen at left. Image taken by the Ikonos satellite on 11 September 2003.
