When Mr Livinstone stumbled upon Victoria Falls in the 1800’s, I cannot even start to comprehend just how taken-a-back he must have been. It is truly a natural wonder.
We started our walk at The Devils cataract and by the time we had reached Rainbow falls we were drenched, but loved it. We actually thought all the tourists strolling through with rain jackets were being a little too cautious, after all, we were at the falls at the time of the year when the least amount of water is recorded. However do not let this fool you – You still very wet indeed.
The craft markets of Vic Falls are a little tiring to wonder through as you have every craftsmen begging you to support him which is all very well, but you simply can’t help everyone. I landed up apologizing to so many people and having to justify why I bought the very same bowl from one stall and not his. The desperation for a sale in Zimbabwe is true reflection of what state the country is still in. If you can’t pay for something, you can trade a t-shirt or shoes and the guys are desperate for anything you can hand over. Christmas shopping was done and so we endeavored to put smiles on the few faces we could support.
This was my first time to the Falls and I loved it… A true African wonder
A true site to behold
