Victorial Falls Activities!

Lots to do in Africa’s adventure capital! I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves! 😀

… Actually some things of note. I got a double entry visa going into Zambia so I could go across to Zimbabwe and do something there. This cost an extra $30. Then I got to the border and it was $75 for Canadians ($30 for basically everyone else). Apparently this is due to sanctions that Canada has imposed on Zimbabwe goods and politicians. Alas. $105 to goto Zimbabwe for under 3 hours. Worth it? lol.

Victoria Falls bridge itself is on the border between the two countries, kind of in no man’s land? It was built in the early early 1900s as well, and has lasted!

Lion Encounter! It was nice to find out that the lions we pet do not go into the real wild! They're used as breeders for other lions that do. These ones get the fake wild.

Victoria Falls Hotel, the real one built in 1904 in Zimbabwe, not the fake one on the Zambia side (Royal Livingstone, built just a few years ago)
