We were picked up at the lodge at precisely 7:50 am, and headed for the Zimbabwe border. Thiswas definitely a third-world experience. People and cars everywhere. Trucks lined up. People lined up at the emigration office. It was a miracle we got through in a matter of minutes.
Check out this stowaway. Turns out these baboons are as common as squirrels in the US.
Anyone up for bungee jumping into the great expanse? No thanks!
Before we took a step down the path to the Falls, we ran into this adorable pair:
Expert garbage pickers!
Our first sight of the glorious falls. . .with a rainbow as an added blessing!
I had no worries about safety. . .these thorn bushes kept us in line. One step to far, and the pain would catapult you backwards. Ingenious. . .the Zimbabwean version of the electric fence. 😉
Of course, no trip is complete without a photo next to Dr. David Livingstone (I presume?) who discovered the falls!
So good to have our missionary friend, Martha Logan join us in our Zambian/Zim adventures. . .
Heading back accross the border from Zimbabwe to Zambia. . .but not before snapping a photo of this adorable baby!
And believe it or not, by 11:30am, we were at the airport, ready to board our flight back to Johannesburg!
