Top of Tugela Falls View of Amphitheatre
South Africa

The second highest waterfall in the world! The Tugela Falls drops down 5 tiers, a total of 948 meters to the valley below.

This 360 degre photo was taken in winter, when the water flow is so slow that the surface actually freezes over, while water trickles beneath the ice. Water falling down the falls actually freezes in the air, and heaps of ice can be seen on each teir.

The highest waterfall in the world is the Angel Falls in Venezuela, check out the 360 degree panoramic photo here:

Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
