ZIMBABWE

Harare is the capital of Zimbabwe. On the edge of landscaped Harare Gardens, the National Gallery of Zimbabwe has a large collection of African contemporary art and traditional pieces.  The unusual granite formation Epworth Balancing Rocks is southeast of the city. Wildlife such as zebras and giraffes roam Mukuvisi Woodlands, which has bike paths and a bird park. The population is about 1.5 million. The US Davis Cup Team defeated the Zimbabwe team in a thrilling three days of tennis.

VICTORIA FALLS

Thanks to Davis Cup in 2000, we visited one of the greatest attractions in Africa and one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, Victoria Falls is located on the Zambezi River, the fourth largest river in Africa, which is also defining the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

In those days I was still taking photos with film. I shot 38 rolls of 36 exposures in what ended up being the most photos I had ever taken in a single day!!!

Victoria Falls is the only waterfall in the world with a length of more than a kilometer and a height of more than hundred meters. It is also considered to be the largest fall in the world in wet season.

The noise of Victoria Falls can be heard from a distance of 40 kilometers, while the spray and mist from the falling water is rising to a height of over 400 meters and can be seen from a distance of 50 kms. Local tribes used to call the waterfall Mosi-o-Tunya “The smoke that thunders”.
