Last Friday our family began the long journey to Zambia. Our main purpose in going is for a month long training program for new Africa missionaries called 40/40. However we decided to go a few days early and take a mini-vacation to Livingstone, Zambia and visit Victoria Falls. It has been an adventure with lots of memories made already.
|The first part of the journey took us up to Nampula on Friday.|
We love road trips on dirt roads with rain. So fun!!
That night we staying in the guest house...our future home :)
|Saturday morning we loaded up in this tiny taxi headed for the airport.|
Literally....the bottom of the car go stuck trying to get out of the driveway!
|We had no idea this would be the first of many times |
on this trip to be crammed in a taxi.
|Having fun waiting at the Nampula airport|
|On our way to Nairobi, Kenya!|
|We spent the night in Nairobi with our friends Jane and Don |
and then were off to Lusaka, Zambia on Sunday.
|On Monday morning we were off to Livingstone, Zambia|
in the back of a tour bus.
|Some of the sights we saw as we traveled 7 hours outside of Lusaka|
|Beautiful fruits and veggies|
|Our bus broke down for a little bit.....the girls were checking it out!|
|Tuesday morning we were ready for all Livingstone had to offer!|
Our supper cool safari truck!
|Zebras and warthogs|
|The girls in front of the mighty Zambezi River|
|Me and my guy|
|After our safari we went to Victoria Falls.|
I could not stop saying, "That is amazing!"
It was so huge!
|The spray is so intense.|
|The spray gets you completely soaked going across the foot bridge |
and at the viewing areas.
|From the other side....the top of the falls are behind them|
|up river just a bit|
|Headed back to our taxi....baboons just hanging out....|
