Southern Africa 2018 Trip

Photos are coming… We are struggling to find adequate internet service that is capable of uploading, posts, with pictures in them. So we have decided to still upload posts without the pix, and will go back and add photos when we can

Southern Africa – Day 20 – Victoria Falls – Zimbabwe

This morning we decided to do a helicopter ride over the falls before walking them. We headed over to the Safari Lodge to book in before making our way over to Boma for some breaky. We were picked up at 11am by our driver Jack & were taken to the helipad- was about a 15min…

Southern Africa – Day 19 – Lokuthula Lodge – Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
