Angels At the Falls
Walking along the falls was like being in the shower. Waterproof camera came in handy here. As did the ponchos.
Victoria Falls - Definately a Natural Wonder
Our last stop was Victoria Falls. The falls are on the Zambizi River dividing Zimbabwe and Zambia. Our original plan was to stay in Zimbabwe, but as we arrived the day after the elections, all of the tour companies had rerouted everyonoe to the Zambia side as it was a little unstable in Zimbabwe. So everythign was full in Zambia and we had to spend our final nights in tents. Hence the scene of the last breakdown by Chester. But after seeing the falls, it was all worth it.
As with any vacation with Kirsten, the goal is to try and do as many activities as possible in the days you have there. And it was our last few days in Africa we did just that. We only had one day to get it all done and we accomplished it all. We started with a trip to the gorge for a try at the gorge swing, repelling down the cliff and the zip line across the gorge. Then straight to the falls themselves to see what all the talk was about. It was amazing. Enormous and beautiful. It was a little tropical
Angels on Top of the Falls
We are standing on top of the falls. Hard to image it is so quiet and calm and just off to the left there is a monster awaiting.
oasis in the desert as the spray fromteh falls was like a rain storm. Then to finish the day off, we did a helicopter tour over teh falls and into the gorge during sunset. This was the perfect way to end a vacation. Also the first helicopter trip for Chester and Lynn. When we saw it from above and the size of the falls, we realized from the ground, we had only see less than a quarter of the falls on foot.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
