“Naisip ko na magugustuhan niya kung actual niyang makikita ang mga animals na napapanood niya."

Here's a peek into their itinerary.

1. Awesome wildlife in Nairobi, Kenya

About three quarters of it lie within Zimbabwe, the other side is in Zambia.

According to Jodi, the falls is called Mosi-oa-Tunya in the native language which means "the smoke that thunders."

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe Called in the native language as Mosi-oa-tunya which literally means "The smoke that thunders" The Zambezi River, the river that forms the falls is the 4th largest African river after the Rive Nile, River Congo, and River Niger. Discovered by Scottish physician, explorer, and missionary Dr David Livingstone in 1855 he named the falls after Victoria his British queen. The falls is approximately 1700m wide making it the biggest curtain of water in the world. ???Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. Aside from the beauty and power of the Victoria Falls, I was moved upon seeing the rainbow. When I became a Christian I never looked at rainbows the same way again. They became a reminder of God's faithfulness and amazing grace. God made a promise to Noah, and his descendants as well as every living creature that the earth will never be again destroyed by flood (Genesis 9:11) God's promise does not depend upon what we do, but is based on His faithfulness alone. Because of His faithfulness He will do what He says He will do! Blessings! ?
