Last look at Africa on an evening cruise

We did an evening cruise our last night in Livingstone. It was a lovely night. It was so relaxing and peaceful. A perfect ending to the trip.

Victoria Falls in Livingstone

 Victoria Falls is an amazing place. It is what I picture part of Africa to be. On the wild side, poor areas and beautiful falls. 
 It is hard to get a good picture of the falls as it is so wet from spray. 
 We walked across the bridge to Zimbabwe. There wer bungee jumpers on the bridge. You could not pay me to do that. 

 Do you see the two jumpers swinging in the picture? 

Victoria Falls

Our final destination was Victoria Falls.  It was a surprise to see the falls as we flew in. It looked like a slit in the ground. It is known as the Big Smoke in the area because it looks like smoke rising from the ground. 

 There is a school/orphanage that we visited. It is well run and taken care of.

 A house and community shower in the village.

The Hotel we stayed in was the Zambezi Hotel. It was nice and there were wild animals roaming the grounds. We did have one person injured by a zebra. Don't come up on a zebra in the dark. 
There is a  Zebra by the pool. 

 We crossed this river in this little boat. We traveled between multiple countries on this trip. South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and crossed by Namibia. 

 Another day of safari and boating. We saw lots of hippos again and elephants. It was fun to see them playing in the water.
