Victoria Falls and Wildlife


Last week, we went to Livingston and put on the hat of a tourist for a few days. We went to see Victoria Falls, one of the major wonders of the world. Given that this is the rainy season, the falls were in full force. All I can say is the display was majestic. The spray is so intense that from a distance it looks like smoke rising. The name given the falls by the people is Smoke That Thunders. I think that says it all.

We also crossed the border into Botswana to take a safari through the Chobe Game Reserve. Fortunately, for us, the animals were not shy this day. We saw impalas, crocodile, water buffalo and hippos. We saw elephants, puku and sable antelope, giraffes, baboons, waterfowl, birds and other wildlife. It was like a dream to see them in their natural habitat. We were the visitors. It was an exciting day. I am grateful for all the conservation efforts underway to preserve this national treasure for the world to see.
