To think that it was only four days! A huge thanks to Sikeleli Safaris who gave us a holiday we could never have dreamed up ourselves. Looking back, we just can’t figure out how we did so much and still managed to find ourselves with plenty of time to relax at the Vic Falls Safari Lodge pool; here we enjoyed endless game-watching from the deck, which overlooks a water-hole before the bush stretches out as far as the setting sun.

From negotiating the roaring rapids below the falls, to a Sundowner Cruise on the gentle waters above, we were able to enjoy all that this great river has to offer. And as if guided walks through the bush weren’t enough, a brisk jog through the reserve in the Vic Falls Half Marathon was arranged. All of this was organized without us having to look up from our afternoon G & Ts. The logistics were seamless!

Most memorable of course, was a night at the majestic Victoria Falls Hotel. This beauty of and establishment stands as if grown out of the african ground beneath it. Sloping terraces, immaculate grounds, high-tea overlooking the falls…. and so much more. We can not praise Danni Ponter and Bren Butterworth enough for organising a surprise getaway for us to this hotel, where, after a year and a half of dating, we decided to commit the rest of our lives to one another!!  We can not imagine a more suitable setting. We loved, loved, loved our trip to Zim, and at this rate, we have to accept that coming back next year is non-negotiable; as much to see the country as to see our new found friends!!”
