Not on View

Webb took at least three aerial photographs throughout his United Nations assignment. He describes this particular view from a plane in his travel journal: “The [Zambezi river] flowing toward the Indian Ocean after its tumbling cascade over Victoria Falls enters the Kariba Gorge where its waters were compressed to such an extent that it was a rushing torrent.”
