Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

                               

First published map [1880] of Victoria Falls,
by Emil Holub, Czech explorer & ornithologist.

         

Postcard of Victoria Falls, showing the broad Zambesi River. One can glimpse under the bridge the start of the deep gorges so evident on the map. Plate tectonics and nature were mightily creative here.

The Falls and the river make deep cuts in the rock.
Bungy jumpers leap 364' from the bridge into the gorge. Oh my stomach! just watching.
