The experience was wonderful, and not only did we enjoy a fantastic buffet meal, we experienced a unique cultural experience, with song and dance from local tribes. This is an activity that everyone should try to include in their itinerary to experience the tastes, sights, sounds and smells of Africa.
At the end of the evening, after the performers had finished their performances, etc. This was so much fun!! Tour of Victoria Falls the town A driver collected us at the lobby and drove us around Vic Falls to show us the area's highlights. We went to see the biggest tree in Zimbabwe, a Baobab tree believed to be well over two hundred years old. In fact, Livingston carved his name on the trunk of the tree.
Sheer Size of The Falls
The tree is now fenced in, to keep people from carving the trunk some more, and also to keep the elephants from tearing up the bark. From the big tree we were supposed to go to the Crocodile Farm, but honestly, how many of those can one see in a lifetime? We passed on this attraction in favor to being driven to the open market to peruse the souvenirs and have lunch in a more rustic setting. In any case, we found the souvenirs over-priced, but lunch was nice and inexpensive.

Game viewing On the other side of the Falls, the national park contains abundant wildlife including sizable populations of elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and a variety of antelope, and people can drive their own cars or go on an organized tour. As we were continuing to Botswana to go on safari, we skipped this activity, otherwise, it is a must if you have not been on safari before. Additionally Air Botswana flies into Kasane, Chobe, only a minute road transfer. Accommodations Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side is an extremely affordable destination.

Livingstone depended on the experience of his travelling companions to navigate the dangerous waters leading to the Falls. At one time we seemed to be going right to the gulph, but though I felt a little tremor I said nothing, believing I could face a difficulty as well as my guides. The Museum has a cast of this carving in its collection.
Livingstone further left his mark by planting seeds of peaches and other fruit. He thought the spray of the Falls would help the plants flourish but upon his return in , Livingstone was dismayed to find the poor saplings had been trampled by hippopotami.
