    Even before arriving at Tabonina, I knew it would be a wonderful experience - I had been communicating with the owner, Laurent, for several weeks prior to arriving, and he was always happy to answer my numerous questions on local tours, transport, and visa issues for Zambia and surrounding countries. It's a simple guesthouse, but very cozy and comfortable, and the staff make you feel right at home - always smiling and happy to chat. We ended up in the family suite, which is a thatched dwelling that appears to be in the traditional local style, which remained surprisingly cool during the day and night, even though it didn't have any air conditioning. Would definitely stay here again.

    ... Air and other awful aircraft experiences.

    When we did eventually lift off in the replacement helicopter, the short flight was most memorable. I will never forget the views in the distance of the columns of spay emerging from the chasm of the falls as we approached. The sight from above was breathtaking and a rainbow came out over the falls to further enhance the experience. This was an expensive treat I would definitely ...

    ... partners with endless questions. Mother of God, please stop talking. We have been with this couple since Cape Town. They must be as tired of us as we are of them.

    Destination Stanley Lodge.- Incredible. We didn’t have the opportunity to ask a single question of our "hostess" as the question couple took up all the oxygen.

    When we finally had our turn, we were delighted to meet Kate and Brinsley. She ...

    ... I was delighted to find that the falls could be reached in about 10 minutes along a paved, level footpath within the hotel property (and that of an adjacent hotel under the same ownership). In April the river was at flood stage, resulting in a tremendous plume of mist that obscured much of the falls from most viewpoints. However, the power of the falls could not have been more ...

    Victoria Falls!

    ... a gorge swing. I don’t really know how that works. I’ve never seen it done.

    We check out the small handcraft shops that are lined up outside the Victoria Falls entrance. Erick buys Luke a sling shot.

    Time to head back to our lodge. On the way we see an extremely old baobab tree (it is fenced off so people can’t get too close). Steve estimates it to be 1500 years old! The circumference of the tree was ...
