After this lovely hike (including a visit from a tarantula!!), we came to Bridal Veil Falls.

The falls are in the hills six kilometers outside the Chimanimani village in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe.

Our winter visit meant cold, cold crystal clear water.

A serene reminder of the beauty tucked into all of Africa's corners.

Chimanimani is one of the beautiful spots in Zimbabwe,
so different than what most think Africa 'should' look like.

The falls were named for its resemblance at rainy season to a bride's veil.
So different from the last waterfall (Victoria Falls!!) I visited in Zimbabwe.
So different from the last hike I took to a waterfall in Chimanimani.

The hike into the Chimanimani Park and up to the falls is well worth the effort-- and it's a relatively easy hike.
