Most people visiting Africa are in search of the "big five": lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and buffalo. But there are also zebras, antelopes, giraffes, crocodiles, wildebeests, hippos, and all of the beautiful, beautiful birds.
At Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe there is a pool where you can swim right up to the edge of the precipice.
I floated on my back in the Zambezi River, fully aware that I shared the water with crocodiles. I just didn't realize how close they were.
