Victoria Falls is situated on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.  With Zimbabwe's
political and economic problems, most people choose Zambia as the country of
destination, then visit Zimbabwe for a side trip.  We also chose to visit Botswana
for a passport stamp since the country was just an hour down the road from our
hotel.
Victoria Falls, Zambia:  March 28-31, 2005
Why make a challenging trip even more difficult?  Why climb a mountain?  With our
few remaining days in South Africa, we decide to take a sidetrip to Victoria Falls.
 One of the seven natural wonders of the world.  And the center of several
different countries.   One of Allan's goals from day one was to add as many
countries to his passport as possible on this trip.  And a trip to Victoria Falls
would be a quick way of adding Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Botswana quickly.  Many people
travel to Victoria Falls and never see the falls - this we did several times. But
the area also offers many adventure packages.  White River rafting was our BIG
adventure.  Capsized boats, lost shoes and oars, and a thunderstorm that made
returning after the rafting and even greater adventure.
