Our time at Victoria Falls is almost over, so today we will walk to Zambia to see the falls from that side of the river. We passed Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls National Park and walked to Zambia.
Since we were exiting one country and entering another, we stopped for immigration in each country and paid a fee to visit the destination country. We stop often to view Victoria Falls from Victoria Falls bridge.
Isn’t it beautiful? Victoria Falls Bridge is famous.
The span of the arch is 158 meters. The bridge is 128 meters above the Zambezi River at low water. And, this Victoria Falls Bridge is one of only a few bridges in the world that carries road, rail and pedestrian traffic. And has great views of Victoria Falls.
Just inside Zambia, we see this statue of Dr. David Livingstone.
This statue, dedicated November 16, 2005, commemorates the 150th anniversary of the first sighting of Victoria Falls by a European. Dr. Livingstone reached Victoria Falls November 16, 1855. We enter Zambia’s National Heritage Conservation Commission area.
We purchase our ticket and rent another raincoat. This is a view of the Victoria Falls bridge from inside the park area.
We follow the path along the falls, delighting in each view of Victoria Falls. We will cross this foot bridge, but see how wet it is.
The mist and spray from Victoria Falls is very strong. This is Rainbow Falls.
Isn’t it spectacular? We love rainbows and water, so this is perfect for us. These waterfalls are beautiful and we are captivated by them.
Leaving the park, we like this sign.
Malaria kills many people. We take our daily pills and use mosquito netting. We hope all people in Africa use the mosquito netting also. We bought a couple t-shirts and are carrying them in a bag. As we cross Victoria Falls bridge to return to Zimbabwe, we see this baboon on the bridge.
He is coming to us. What??? He runs to mom, jumps up and grabs the t-shirt bag. He rips the bag, but then leaves the bag and us because there is no food in the bag. No one is hurt, but we are certainly surprised. Is this an almost baboon attack? These baboons are really friendly. That was a new experience and a great story to tell our friends at home. Looking at the waterfalls, we recognize the foot bridge we crossed in the park.
While we walk across the bridge, a train, Pride of Africa, is also crossing the bridge.
This is our last full day at Victoria Falls. We really wish we had more time, but we have plane reservations and hotel reservations in Mozambique. If you visit Victoria Falls, we know you will love it.
