New account of trip to Botswana! After Swim the day before at the Devil's Pool at Victoria Falls, we spent another day in Zambia. That because? Well, to see Victoria Falls from the visitor center and visit the livingstone museum, nothing less.
The sound of nature woke me up that morning and I saw through the window that it had already dawned. With calm, we went to breakfast. In the dining room I was all ready to enjoy an epic breakfast. The tables were strategically placed to eat before a panoramic view of the river. In addition to a buffet of fruits, breads and pastries, they brought us the menu with the dishes that we could order and that they prepare you at the moment.
Then Isaac accompanied us to the school. He Tongabezi Lodge It is special for many reasons, but one of the most remarkable is that it includes a free school originally founded for the children of the hotel staff. As in many hotels far from urban centers, most hotel employees live in an annex town created to house them. And the school allows their children to be in school until they are 10 years old and close to their parents. Currently, this school also accepts children from nearby towns, so that at the time of our visit there were more than 240 children and adolescents. One of the teachers explained how everything works and answered all the questions. It was the wife of the hotel director who promoted the creation of the school and, thanks to the hotel and the donations of many people, it seems that the Tujatane School He will continue to train many children.
Then we went to Victoria Falls, but this time to see them head on. Therefore, we enter a park that follows the cliff that forms the river after the waterfall and offers stunning views. As in November the river has a low flow, we could see the falls without the water vapor that covers everything at other times of the year. After falling down Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River winds through a narrow canyon that has been eroding millennium after millennium. At one point in the park, you cross a narrow bridge that crosses the river at high altitude. Beyond, you can see the great bridge that crosses the second canyon below and that separates Zambia from Zimbabwe. On this bridge you can see people doing bungee jumping.
