Dash to Victoria Falls (Mosi-oa-Tunya)

Toilet stop waiting for the others to come through the Nkotakhota Wildlife reserve where Clancy encountered the non lethal tsetse fly. We were not allowed to stop in the reserve as previously a motorbike tourist did not make it. The lions were well fed that day!
Here’s looking at you
Mud houses over a wooden frame and thatched roof. Note the round bamboo storage silo for the maize
Houses just after the Luangwa river crossing. No photos allowed of the bridge. Note the 3 different housing types.
Mosi-oa-Tunya “smoke that thunders”. Not at full flow now, but between 10 million and 500 million litres of water per minute flow from the Zambezi, depending on the time of the year.
Morning safari is very cold for some
Lioness on the road. She is non male compliant so left the pride
The 6 year old male
African hooded vulture under attack
Lilac breasted roller
One of the many Zazu (red beaked horn-bill) we saw
These rhino’s were fighting over the grass
This baby was not worried at all about the grass
We needed guarding from the rhino’s
This warthog was looking decidedly ill, not sure if he was kicked or was just dying when all of a sudden he leapt into the air and then fell back to the ground again.
If the warthog was kicked, it would probably have been one of these guys protecting the baby. they were extremely interested in the hogs well being and watched it intensely.
