It was lowest water volume in many, many years. The bad news was the width of the fall was much reduced. The good news was the amount of mist was much lower so you could better see the falls that were left. In high times the falls in the last photo would extend all the way to the right side of the photo.
A really big baobab.
Southern Africa is a beautiful area. We are glad we’ve had the opportunity to experience it. And we still have over a week and a half to go.
