Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls Hotel – Revisited at Pandemic Times

In 2020, the historic hotel closed its doors during the covid lockdown for the first time in its over 100-year old history! To our surprise – we were the only guests at the hotel – absolutely surreal – roaming the corridors in solitude and sitting at the bar alone like king and queen. And partly because it was so empty, but also the beginning of rainy season – there were massive insects on the ground of the hotel – huge grasshoppers, massive centipedes, water bugs, and so on – a bit spooky but fun and goes well after a couple of gin and tonics!
