Today I saw the most beautiful thing I think I’ve ever seen. I’ve been to Victoria Falls before, in fact it was 6 years ago today I was there, but today I got to the perfect spot at the exact right time, place, wind, mist, rainbow and everything. The picture above, while not possibly justified to how amazing it was to see in person was the best scene I’ve ever witnessed. It was a dream scenario with nobody around to ruin it. It was the reason you travel. It’s like a surfer searching for the perfect wave, today was my perfect vista.
I saw the Falls from both sides of the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe and actually snuck out of and back into Zambia without having to buy another $50 visa which was pretty sweet. I am not going to write too much about the Falls because I think the following pictures from both sides will pretty much speak for themselves (I would put more up but the Internet in Zambia is really slow). Victoria Falls, the smoke that thunders, is simply amazing.
I am doing a daytrip to Chobe National Park in Northern Botswana tomorrow for some game driving. I am looking forward to that. Enjoy the pictures.
The Smoke That Thunders
