The Zambezi- Part 1: Source of Life

Deep in the heart of Africa flows one of the greatest rivers on earth - the Zambezi. Except for the Victoria Falls, it is mostly unknown. The two part series shows impressive pictures of the course of the river from its source in Zambia to its delta in Mozambique. During the dry months, it is the only source of life for man and beast near the river. The first part of the series follows the Zambezi from its headwaters to the Victoria Falls.
