Watching the local Livingstone footballers take on the national Zambian team at Livingstone Stadium.

It was the place to be on a sunny Friday afternoon, space quickly ran out.

The crowds watch their local team take a hammering.

Side hair-combs; the latest fashion accessory in Zambia.             3 friendly football fans asked to have their picture taken.

The Barbing Center outside Livingstone Stadium was doing roaring business.

After more than 80 hours stuck on a bus it was nice to feel the refreshing spray of the Victoria Falls. Aptly named ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ which means ‘The smoke that thunders’, the Victoria Falls come rushing out of the Zambezi River Basin. In rainy season the spray that comes off the falls creates a cloud so huge it is almost impossible to see the waterfalls themselves.

While taking a wander upstream from the falls, I came across the Royal Livingstone Hotel. An insanely expensive setup complete with pet giraffe and zebra to keep the lawns trim. Not expecting to see animals near a hotel, I literally walked into a giraffe’s leg. It looked less surprised to see me than me it, and went on munching a treetop. It was a bizarre sight seeing these wild animals grazing around a sparkling swimming pool where women lay sunbathing and sipping cocktails overlooking one of the worlds biggest waterfalls.
