Vic Falls

We had the absolute pleasure of visiting Livingstone, Zambia this weekend: the home of the magnificent Victoria Falls. God did quite well on this particular natural wonder of the world. We were there in the lowest water levels, which meant less water on the falls but drier conditions for pictures and perfect white water rafting below the falls!

Some highlights of our trip included watching monkey swat teams swoop in to the open air breakfast buffet at our hotel and steal everything from muffins to orange juice to sugar packets, going to sleep watching giraffes outside our window and waking up to zebras, yawning with the hippos at dusk, and conquering the mighty Zambezi, "the wildest raft ride in the world" (which was nothing compared to our bus ride back on a bus with the suspension tied on by a leftover 12-year old bungy chord from the vic falls bridge... basically it was a 7-hour version of the Racer roller coaster at Kings Island).

We did raft, a whole lot of fun. The Zambezi is a wild river and November is the best time of year. 2 6ft crocs on the riverbank made for nice company as we floated by too!
