Description ISS007-E-14361 (4 September 2003) --- This view featuring Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River was photographed by one of the Expedition 7 crewmembers onboard the International Space Station (ISS). Victoria Falls is one of the most famous tourist sites in sub-Saharan Africa. The falls and their famous spray clouds are 1700 meters long, the longest sheet of falling water in the world. The falls appear as a ragged white line in this image. The small town of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe appears just west of the falls, with smaller tourist facilities on the east bank in Zambia. A major river in south-central Africa, the Zambezi River flows from western Zambia to the Indian Ocean in Mozambique. It flows southeast in a wide bed before plunging suddenly 130 meters over the Victoria Falls into a narrow gorge.
