Lions at Victoria Falls

Don and Jennifer also recommended the Micro Flight over Victoria Falls so we booked a morning flight which was great. We got to see the falls at a good time right after the rainy season when the water was still flowing through the whole gorge.

We also got to see the gorge and many animals from the air including elephants, giraffes and hippos. Ali got to see a crocodile. 

Hussain and I went first, and then Ali went last with a pilot who is a biker also.  We went back to the hotel for some pizza and prepared for our Lion walk. Yes the receptionist at the lodge told Ali that you could walk and touch lions so he booked us for an afternoon stroll.

At first we didn't know what to expect, but soon saw that we were not the only one's doing this. We got to watch up close and touch two sister young lions.

We went back to the Lodge for a restful night since tomorrow we will enter Botswana.
