Heading to Africa: Victoria Falls, Zambia, Namibia

As I mentioned earlier, we’re getting ready for a trip. Six years ago Kathleen and I went to Kenya and Tanzania for a 2 week African Safari and ended the trip with a 3 day stay on the island of Zanzibar where we then got married.

We’ve decided to go back! We head out later this week on a long overdue vacation. This time we’ll be starting in Victoria Falls before heading out across much of Zambia and Namibia to see some of Africa’s amazing wildlife and landscapes.

It didn’t start to feel real until a week or so ago when we went to get our travel vaccinations (ow!). But we’re now at the point where we need to finish up the remaining vegetables in the refrigerator, do packing, and finish final preparation so we can hop on a series of planes at the end of the week. (That leg from JFK to Johannesburg is going to be loooong.)

I’m not sure how much Internet access we’ll have during the trip (likely more than six years ago), but we’ll try to post a few pictures here and/or on my Facebook page as we can.
