Our final day in Livingstone has arrived, and it began with yet another early start. We managed to arrange a safari drive and rhino walk, and at exactly 8am this morning our guide Phillip arrived with his safari truck. After a few rules about the safari drive, we all hopped aboard and set off for an exciting morning. As we entered the Mosi au Tunya National park, we were immediately amazed with the many animals native to the park. We travelled around the whole park seeing Zebras, Giraffes, Impalas, Elephants and many more. Before lunch, we walked to see the very rare White Rhino (or Wide Mouth Rhino). These Rhino are monitored 24/7 by armed guards, so it was a real privilege to see them.
After Lunch, we travelled out of the park, and towards the Victoria Falls. What better way to top off a wonderful trip than a visit to one of the Natural Wonders of the world? We walked along the viewing trail at the falls and then met our guide who was going to take us to Angel’s Pool. At the Pool, we all got the chance to take a dip and have a look over the edge of the falls – an incredible experience which everyone loved.
Tomorrow we travel back to Lusaka to catch our flight back to the UK, I am not looking forward to the hours of travel but it has been undoubtedly worth it and a real once in a lifetime opportunity.
