The Victoria Falls.

Our main reason for being in Zambia.

A (ridiculously) early start to the day meant that we were at the gates for opening time.

And that gave us the Victoria Falls to ourselves for two hours. Yep. Worth the sacrifice of rolling out of our tent in the middle of the night, don’t you think?

So we took our time and explored the different trails.

We could have spent the whole day at the Boiling Pot. Great view of the bridge. And lots of rainbows.

Back to camp for a well deserved brunch.

And then.

Then, we took a helicopter ride over the Falls.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for the ride.


Clear view of the Falls, the gorges, Livingstone island and plenty of wildlife.

A truly amazing day. Right up there as one of the very best.
