The Zambezi river forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The border crossing is a bridge which affords a magnificent view of the falls. Every time you cross the bridge you have to go through exit and entry formalities for the respective countries, so you can end up with a lot of stamps in your passport. If a lot of people are waiting to cross the border it can take a while, but not to worry because there is ample entertainment. Several troops of baboons (Papio ursinus) frequent the area and are into everything. It is a bad idea to leave anything in an open vehicle where these bad actors may lay their not-so-gentle hands upon it. They also have extremely impressive teeth which they're apt to show you if you get too close. Would you want to put your arm into the back of this pick-up truck to rescue your camera?
