A’Zambezi River Lodge was our gateway to experience all that Victoria Falls had to offer. Sunset cruises, fishing trips and such were located right on or beside the property. All of our tours provided pickup whether it was for our Canoe Safari on the Upper Zambezi River, Victoria Falls helicopter tour, or Morning Lion Walk… everything was convenient. The lodge didn’t disappoint as base to experience all this.
We had arranged this morning adventure with lion cubs through the A’Zambezi River Lodge concierge (a Wild Horizon Representative). Having just arrived late afternoon yesterday but what a great way to start our visit to Victoria Falls! The Lion Encounter still receives a 4.5 out of 5 rating based on 285 reviews on TripAdvisor. They’ll get another raving review from us!
Another “Trip of a Lifetime” to see The Big 5 at Kruger National Park, South Africa with a quick detour to see Victoria Falls. We’re so excited!!! We planned 20 Days in Kruger National Park back in September 2013. We still have to get our last series of Twinrix (travel immunization shots for HepA/B) for the trip.
Time to move from Riptide RV Resort & Marina to Pelican’s Landing Resort. We jumped on I-95N and have a 4 hour drive. It’ll be our first time experiencing summer weather (defined as rainy season from May to October) in Florida. We had researched a good location to stay… staying coastal as much as possible… that would be a good basecamp for some surf, beach visits, play on our porta bote, and close enough to theme parks. Here’s where we ended up staying.
RV Day #1: We start our RV Trip in San Diego, California. Our RV still wasn’t organized. We didn’t have supplies: hanging dryer, dishes or groceries. We still had to unpack our luggage of clothes. We had a lot of chores, like dusting and vacuuming. We have so much to learn about our RV so we can create good habits for traveling. In between, we would visit with friends and our old favorite hangouts.
When was the last time you got a massage? Tick-tock-tick-tock… Are you pausing too long to answer this question? If so, sounds like you haven’t treated yourself to one in a long while. That’s just so wrong! Massages are so awesome and have so many health benefits. How often should we get massages? My answer: As often as you can afford! Fortunately, there’s CrowdSavings.com Honolulu that had a great promotion for a 60-minute massage with Red Earth Massage and Wellness. As of today, they hold a 5 out of 5 star rating on Yelp based on 21 reviews.
With plans to travel to (a) Johannesburg, South Africa (b) Victoria Falls, at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe and (c) Kruger National Park, South Africa it’s important to learn what immunizations are recommended and required for travel… even more …
I’ve always been under the impression that you’d need to have a minimum $5,000 budget to enjoy Africa. Is that true? How far is Africa anyway? If you fly all the way across the globe to get there, can’t we stay as long as possible? When is the best time of year to go? What airlines fly direct or with the least stops? So many questions and time to get some answers. (Illustration by Kenneth Gitonga)
