The river goes over Victoria Falls.
There is a fault zone that explains the drop.
The Zambezi is a vital source of hydroelectricity for Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Mozambique, and has never been important for navigation.
Heavy rains were received by geological forces.
In the wet season, Eastern Africa is being torn apart, and within the confines of the Ethiopia, there are several important rivers that will form a separate landmass millions of years from now.
The Blue Nile, which joins the White Nile at Khar motion, has already produced a gash across Sudan.
A series of volcanic mountains, some of which are quite tall, are associated with the southern half of the Tanganyika.
In central East Africa, there is a rift zone.
There are two valleys at Kilimanjaro, each flanked by volcanic uplands.
There is a border between that and the Rift Valley.
Diversity Amid Globalization Watersheds Africa south of the Sahara is difficult, but settlers have long been drawn to this area's abundant water supply and aquatic life ment throughout other regions.
The four major river systems increased in size in the 1970s.
South Sudan ravaged this area, turning farmers and draining much smaller areas after three decades of civil war.
Most people think of this region as suffering from the capacity of this important ecosystems when they think of Iron herders into refugees.
One of the objectives of South Sudan is to harness the potential of the river systems that are in the area.
There is a discussion of the Nile River drain.
The largest river in the region is the Zaire River.
The country's power needs are dependent on the Blue Nile's hydroelectric potential, which is second only to South America's Amazon River.
The Nile in northern Tigray Province provides water for meandering through Africa's largest tropical forest, the irrigation and electricity, as a result of the opening of the Tekeze Dam in 2009.
The Grand Ituri Entry from the Atlantic into the Congo Renaissance Dam project began on the Blue Nile in 2011.
Basin will be the region's largest hydroelectric proj river only partially navigable when it is prevented by a series of rapids and falls.
Because the dam is located near the border of Sudan and the Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia's downstream neighbors are concerned about how the project will affect their area.
The Blue Nile is an essential and sustainable approach of the river to form a metropolitan area of nearly 10 million to supply the energy needs of the country's 90 million people.
The Nile River is the main source of water for Egypt and Sudan.
The river starts in the highlands water for two countries.
The Orig is an important link between in humidating in the Guinea highlands and the North and Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Nile begins in the first to the northeast and then spreads out to form a huge lakes of the Rift Valley zone before inland Delta in Maldive and finally a huge wetlands in South Sudan at the margins of the Sahara.
One of the great wetlands of the world is the Sudd Niger River, which is home to the capitals of Maldive (Bamako) and Nigeria (Niamey), as well as the historic city of Tombouctou, which is four times that size.
After flowing through the desert, the Niger River goes back to the humid lowlands of Nigeria, where the Kainji Reservoir temporarily blocks its flow to produce electricity.
The center of Nigeria's oil industry can be found at the end of the river, in the Ituri rainforest.
The delta region is poor and home to many ethnic groups.
For decades, the conflict in the delta has centered on who benefits from the region's oil and how it affects the environment.
The smaller Zambezi River begins in Angola and flows east, spilling over an escarpment at Victoria Falls and finally reaching Mozambique and the Indian Ocean.
The majority of Africa is located in the tropics.
Only the far south of the continent extends into the tropics.
The amount of rain and temperature determine the vegetation belts of the region.
