Now living in Florida, former Belvedere, California, resident Michael T. Jackson founded and functions as the president of a family foundation that supports organizations focused on social issues and health care. An advocate for research in the area of orthopedic regenerative healing, he also established the Napa Medical Research Foundation to the northeast of Belvedere. An avid traveler, Michael T. Jackson is particularly fond of visiting Africa in his spare time.

Located on the Zambezi River, Africa’s fourth largest river, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s most popular attractions. With a length exceeding 1 kilometer and height of more than 100 meters, it qualifies as the world’s largest waterfall.

Barely visited before a railway was constructed to Bulawayo in 1905, Victoria Falls has since been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Since 1990, it has attracted approximately 300,000 people annually, and over the next decade, this figure is expected to increase.
