Victoria Falls is located along the Zambize River between Zimbabwe and Zambia, and is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World (the others being the Northern Lights, Grand Canyon, Paricutin, Mount Everest, Harbor of Rio de Janeiro, and Great Barrier Reef). It is the largest waterfall in the world, with a width of 5,604' and a height of 354'.
Mehluli guided us on a walk along the falls, providing us with a rich history of the falls and the area. Thankfully we were provided with large raincoats, and we certainly needed them as the spray from the falls was like being in a rainstorm. It was quite an experience to see the falls from a distance as well as close up.
Next Mehluli took us to a bridge where we could walk above the Zambize River from Zimbabwe to Zambia and back again. While the scenery was beautiful, the experience was marred by the street vendors hawking their wares. They just would not take no for an answer, which forced us to do the walk at a faster pace than we would have preferred.

We retired back to the lodge to rest up a bit before dinner. The next day would begin early once again.
