An all too brief visit, but packed with adventure
by Rick Hoffman
Thanks to Boo and your team for helping us put together an absolutely memorable trip.
We decided to add Vivtoria Falls into the front end of a nearly month long honeymoon trip. With a late December wedding, Christmas, New Years and the new bride's birthday, I had little time to plan. Enter Boo and the Guide.
Found you guys on the Internet and quickly decided to go with local knowledge and known services. We arrived early afternoon and were met by our driver and quickly arrived at the Victoria Falls Hotel. Rest in up that day after our long flight from the states, we were ready to go the next morning.
Our guide from Shearwater picked us up and took us on a lovely tour of the falls and park. Lots of good information (and the necessary poncho) made this a very good way to be introduced to the falls.
That evening we enjoyed the sunset dinner cruise with the Zambezi Explorer. Fantastic evening, great food and wonderfully romantic string.
In my world, the difference between a tour and an adventure is the presence of risk!
So, day two we went off to Devil's Pool.m fortunately the water level allowed us to make the swim and safely peer over the edge. The Livingstone Island Breezer also included a light lunch.
That afternoon we went off to the airport for micro lite tour of the falls with Wild Horizons. Simply priceless. We took the 30 minute tour that included flying up the river, where we saw hippos, giraffes, zebra, elephants and even rhinos.
We could not have put together this memorable visit without your help. Thanks and see you again I hope.
