I’m Brigitte, the Maplanga Africa events consultant but some call me the ‘Tour Guide’. I had the privilege of hosting a Dad’s and Lad’s Group at the A’Zambezi River Lodge in Victoria Falls this past weekend. 7 Dads and their sons, made for an interesting weekend which surpassed my every expectation - I have never seen such well behaved children (and dads)!
We had a fully loaded weekend ahead of us and were all in very high spirits, the ice breaker of course was the Sunset booze cruise, with the whole boat to ourselves, we watched some amazing birds and lots of hippos, everyone was blown away!
The next day we had an Elephant back safari and a visit from Sylvester the Cheetah. The kids were in their element and the parents taken aback by the whole experience. After that we were off to the Gorge site, where I threw myself off a platform into the gorge with a free fall of 72m followed by a swing in the gorge with the Mighty Zambezi rushing below me, such an adrenalin rush!
On our last day in Vic Falls the group were off on a Canoe Safari, which in their opinion was excellent with a sighting of wild Elephants frolicking in the water! They opted for a bit of Tiger fishing that afternoon, even the rain didn’t dampen things, with a 3.5kg Tiger caught! Well done Glen!
That night we had a dinner booked at the Boma, Place of eating with an array of wild meats, Mopani worms and some interactive drumming, what a great way to end of an amazing trip!
I’ll leave you with my ultimate quote and believe it true in everyway…… I DO WHAT I LOVE AND I LOVE WHAT I DO
