I wanted to go somewhere nice for a holiday. I am a huge animal lover, so it was no surprise that I ended up going somewhere where there is a lot of wildlife that I typically do not see in person. I had read about several different locations and finally ended up picking Victoria Falls. I had found a top lodge in Victoria Falls after doing a few more searches, and it truly was the best place I could have chosen. The lodge itself is really great with an abundance of amenities, and the location could not have been better.
The one thing I really liked about this area is that it is known for its elephants and other wildlife. I had no idea that I would end up seeing elephants right there on the grounds, but that is exactly what had happened. I could see elephants, hear the hippos nearby, and saw so many other amazing animals on the safari adventure that my husband and I went on. We ended up staying for eight days, so we were able to go on a few different safaris, which was a dream come true for me.
The lodge itself was amazing too. It was built with stones and had a grass roof. It really did feel like we were right out there in the middle of nature but with all the luxuries of home too. Just a very short walk down our path took us to the swimming pool, where I made sure to spend at least an hour a day. It offered an amazing view, and elephants even came right up to the pool! We were able to do all kinds of fun activities that the host arranged for us, and we had our very own tour guide when we needed to go anywhere. I rarely go to the same holiday spot twice, but I will definitely be going back there!
