Victoria Falls

94 °F

Today we took Air Zimbabwe to Victoria Falls. The plane was so old it still had Ash trays on the seats, and it played old school country music like the Dixie chicks!

We arrived safely to Lokuthula Lodge, and I have never been any more Impressed!


Animals are everywhere! If you look hard enough you will see something! We have mostly seen warthogs, mongoose, baboons, monkeys and a type of antelope that looks almost like our deer. My husband and parents went on a walk and saw an elephant! The living area in our lodge opens up all the way so all these animals walk right up to the lodge. They will come in of they smell food so everything has to be locked up when we are not around.


We spent the afternoon going shopping at the local town which is quite annoying because we stick out so bad and everyone wants our money.
The prices on their groceries are pretty funny to look at compared to ours. It's about 18-20 dollars per one American dollar. They do not have many choices in groceries like we do. Their stores are close to our Aldi except A LOT of Alcohol. Most drinks look to be cheaper than water, which is annoying considering you can't drink their water. The nice thing about Zimbabwe is they do not have any GMOs in their foods. I've noticed allergies are not common here compared to the States.

After shopping we swam and relaxed. Traveling is exhausting!
