Now in Zambia at the Victory Falls - they are amazing. Really is something that you have to see in real life to appreciate the scale of them!! We walked along part of them and over a bridge where you get absolutely soaked from all of the spray from the falls! Was glad I had my waterproof case for my camera! It was a really sunny day and there was a rainbow that went full circle!! Was quite a site!
The 2nd day at the falls I booked to do the gorge swing. Was driven out to the gorge a bit further down from the falls and got all harnessed up. I was told to just step off the edge of this massive gorge! Was quite scary as you couldn't really feel the ropes that supported you. I freefell 53m in 3.5s before the ropes tightened and I began to swing! Was lots of fun so went to do it again!! This time I got my feet strapped together and lent off the gorge backwards so that I fell backwards and upseoddown!! Wasn't as scary as the first time as I knew more what to expect but the feeling falling upsidedown was very different!!
In the afternoon I went for a microlight flight over the falls (kind of looked like a toy plane! lol!). The ride was a lot smoother than I expected and we went roun rdight over the falls - really got to see how big they actually are as on the ground you only get to see a bit of it. We flew over the zambezi river and some of the park where we saw elephants, crocadiles and hippos roaming around! There was a camera on the wing and the pilot took pictures all the way round so have got some good ones from it.
That evening we all took the crew out for dinner as it was our last nigh altogether. Was pretty sad saying bye to everyone as we all got on really well as a group! The crew took us to a local bar where there was a banmd playing so we could all have a dance. I ordered a glass of wine and soon saw that it came from a box sat on the side and they didn't have any wine glasses so had it in a glass beaker!! T.I.A!!
Will be sad to leave Africa as it has been so umch fun and have seen so much. Definately somewhwre I would like to come back and see more of. But I am also very excited about getting to australia - just a shaem about the 3 days & 4 flights it takes for me to get there!!
