Here's a random sample of reasons justifying a decision to drop everything and celebrate New Year's Eve at Vic Falls with me.
Last year, Steve Fisher, Dale Jardine and Sam Drevo took on the massive rapids on the mighty Zambezi River. The video that came out of the white water rafting expedition is nothing short of awesome.
For two weeks in July I was lucky enough to join the Greenpop team in Livingstone, Zambia, for the second year of their reforestation and eco education project, Trees for Zambia.
Last year, Greenpop rolled out their ambitious Trees for Zambia reforestation project and a total of 4135 trees were planted over three weeks. This year, they are doing it again and it promises to be even bigger and better.
Exchanging smiles with the people you meet on your travels can be the catalyst that turns an average trip into an unforgettable one. This group of Spanish doctors took the idea of giving and receiving smiles to a literal extreme on their recent mobile dental safari through Zimbabwe.
My experience of the Vic Falls Carnival, the new year's festival in Victoria Falls, where I discovered a rocking new band and saw a Zimbabwean legend.

Africa is bold and it is beautiful. It's also a schizophrenic puzzle of haves and have-nots, as you will discover if you visit Livingstone on the edge of the Victoria Falls in southern Zambia.
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe is a mecca for some of Africa's most famed residents, the elephants. In the driest months of the year they great distances to reach sources of water, as I witnessed one day from the rooftop viewing decks of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.
