African Adventure 2014 - Victoria Falls Hotel Day 3

With the desire to soak up every moment of our remaining time in Zimbabwe, we woke up at 5:30am, hoping to catch the sunrise over Victoria Falls Bridge. While Ben showered, Kari hurriedly got dressed and ready to go watch the sunrise. Though not as beautiful as the day before, it was still a lovely sunrise. The moon had also not completely sat and was hovering just above the Victoria Falls Hotel. Very lovely.

After the sun was rather high in the sky, we headed back to the room so Kari could shower and Ben could begin packing. Ben was able to get most of the souvenirs in his pack, leaving Kari's available for any potentially additional ones we might find.

Breakfast was served buffet style in the Jungle Junction; the location of the previous night's buffet dinner. Who did we run into at breakfast? You guessed it! Christine and Debbie! For having only met at Chapungu a few days prior, it seemed like we were going everywhere together. The buffet was quite delicious. Ben had a ham & cheese omelet, some bacon, some fruit and a couple croissants. Kari had a bunch of fruit and a sampling of eggs and bacon.

After breakfast, we wandered around the grounds and decided to have one last go at picking out souvenirs at the market. Hoping to avoid the street dealers, we raced off, zigging and zagging our way to the market. Once there, we found a few more items to complete what we were looking for. With little time remaining before our transfer, we raced back to the hotel to finish packing.

With many people trying to catch transfers to the airport at the same time for the few flights out of Victoria Falls International Airport daily, it seemed like check-out took forever. Thankfully, we were not in a rush.

After check-out, all we had to do was sit and wait for our transfer. As luck would have it, our transfer was one of the later ones, freeing up some space on the couch to relax for a bit.
