Snapshots from Africa, Page Five


If you weren't sure before, you will be convinced now:


The Zambezi River gorge just below Victoria Falls.  The cables you see spanning the river are not the ones I zipped.   The zip line starts at the same place, but drops quickly into the gorge, comes forward into the photo, and is fastened across the gorge out of sight at right.


And there she goes...

Up to 110 km/hr across a 500m chasm.




There goes my rescuer.

While I'm still swing back and forth.

He fastens a rope to me...

And back to the top we go.

YES!!!


The sign right beside me reads "Enter at your own risk."
