We are at Victoria Falls, on the Zambezi River in southern Africa, which provides habitat for several unique species of plants and animals. It is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and is one of the world's largest waterfalls, with a width of 1,708 m (5,604 ft).

The film opens with people visiting the imposing falls as well as a general shot of the landscape. We see views of the park with visitors walking around as the filmmaker stands at the falls showing us how deep they are and focuses on the boats that are on the river.

The view changes to a flock of flamingos, some of which are in the water and some of which are flying. We are transferred to the crocodile farm which is located about 5 kilometers from Victoria Falls, at the doorstep of the Zambezi National Park. The filmmaker with close-ups shots shows us this imposing animal and focuses on the signs that there are in the area with one reading "BIG DADDY" and the second says that "Visitors who throw litter into the crocodile enclosure will be asked to retrieve it" and then he gets back to the filming of crocodiles.

The camera gives us a panoramic view of the park, a huge tree and the statue of David Livingstone. The statue has an inscription that states that David Livingstone visited the falls in 1851 when he documented his first impression on the beauty of the waterfalls during his first encounter when he named the falls after Queen Victoria. Afterwards, we see signs telling us not to throw stones as well as many visitors watching a demonstration with a baby crocodile. The tour continues with one more sign that shows us that in this farm there are 2-year-old crocodiles with the filmmaker recording them.

The film closes with shots of the crocodile farm with some sitting, some moving on the ground and some in the water.
