A visit to Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park starts the last day of African adventure

L and D at Victoria Falls - 1

The Adventurers rose before dawn today to begin their homeward journey, boarding first one of the Royal Chundu’s boats and then a van driven by knowledgeable guide Godspel who took them to Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and its world famous Victoria Falls.

The saw the Falls first on a fabulous 15-minute helicopter ride over it. They’d been a bit reluctant to take to the air given the expense but it was well worth it, a once in a lifetime experience. It was amazing to see the small island at the tip of the falls where David Livingston became the first European to see one of the wonders of the world.

The Falls are so roaring at this time of the year that it was hard to get a photo without all the mist (if you can call something that pervasive “mist”). Mosi-oa-Tunya means “the smoke that thunders,” a much more fitting name than Victoria (after the queen).

Their vist included walking along the Falls edge and getting a bit wet. They’d planned for that with each clothes to change into once they reached Johannesburg and the airline lounge where they could shower.
