Somewhere over the rainbow in Zimbabwe – Day 1

28 June 2023 348 views

Esther arrived at lunchtime in Victoria Falls and luckily Chris had not only picked up the rental car already but also got a Zim Sim card.

Off we went to see the falls on the Zimbabwean side. The government recently upped the entry fees to Victoria Falls National Park to $50 a person per day recently, so we paid a steep entry fee but we also got the most beautiful rainbows in return.

Single and double rainbows, quarter and full half circle rain bows, very pretty and amazing.

Esther was here 30 years ago, but could not remember a thing. Vic Falls town had changed so much. The falls carried a lot of water still and the spray was making everyone soaking wet.

We spent the entire rest of day in the park admiring the falls from all angles.

Right at sunset we had to leave the park and wandered to the Victoria Falls bridge. A very nice car and railway bridge across the Zambesi River gorge downstream of the falls. We watched the sunset from there, one view to the falls and one view into the gorge below.

We on the spur decided to have a cocktail drink at the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge overlooking their waterhole which was lit.

Seeing a herd of buffalo leave when we approached, we had drinks and snacks on their deck for a very pleasant first evening together in Zimbabwe.
