After my safari at Luangwa I went to Livingstone, staying at the Waterberry Zambezi Lodge on the mighty Zambezi river.
The lodge was quiet at the time of my stay so I had this house all to myself!
lounge area and single bed, another bed and a kitchen and dining table
were at the other end behind where I'm standing taking the photo.
Four singles and one double bed in total, I used the double room with en-suite.
Upstairs lounge area in main hotel
In the high season those rocks wouldn't be visible, the falls would be raging
The Devil's Pool at Livingston Island
on the edge of the falls
To get to the pool we had to swim in a triangle route, it was very scary.
That's me swimming towards the others, and that's the edge of the falls behind them!!
We were hauled out by rope and scrambled over rocks. Afterwards it occured to me that if we left the pool via a rope and rocks why did we do the scary swim to get into it? I can only guess it was done that way to add a bit of adventure!!!
The night before going to the pool I was sharing a dinner table with a couple who had done it that day. They said the swim to the pool was scary but well worth it. I did a “What, wait, did you say swim to the pool? I thought we would get there by boat” “You have to swim, the water is too rocky for a boat” they said. Whoa, I went straight to the office to cancel but they said to go, it’s a nice trip, take my costume and then if I want to do it when I get there I could!
Walking down to the boiling pot.
The left side of the bridge is in Zimbabwe and the right side is in Zambia. People were doing bungee jumping off the bridge. I did consider doing it but only for a few seconds, then came to my senses!
The boiling pot is the name given to this area where the water has fallen down the ravines, along the river and into a Gorge where it swirls around, and, over time it has carved out a deep pool. In the rainy season the spray created by this looks like a huge pot of boiling water.
Shopping in Livingstone, looking for a t-shirt for my grandson.
The last day of my holiday I treated myself to a beautiful delicious dinner on the Royal Livingstone train
The safari and Livingstone was a wonderful holiday.
