Quote: I didn't actually take this trip to Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls), but I gave it to my daughter and her husband. They're missionaries in South Africa and I felt they really needed a break. What a great surprise for them!

A Vacation Not Soon Forgotten

Overview

Quote:
Tour Victoria Falls, go on a safari, and love the nature. Victoria Falls at dusk is sure to bring back (and make more) memories not soon to be forgotten. The native food is very unusual but great!

Quick Tips:

Take hiking tips with the lodge managers. Don't stray out on your own. Wear good shoes. Take tours, as there are so many great guided tours

Best Way To Get Around:

We had our own car, so getting around was easier, but watch for all the wild animals, especially elephants, warthogs, and giraffes crossing. Do not DARE run up to them because you will scare them.

We went rambling around Victoria Falls at leisure; capturing all of nature’s many mysteries and enjoying the peace is beyond words. All of the wildlife, some of which we'd never seen; the many beautiful angles to marvel at at Victoria Falls; the safaris; actual mountain climbing just outside Victoria Falls... It was all so wonderful.
