We had a long wait at the border into Zambia and entertained the locals with our attempts to keep ourselves entertained playing charades. We camped the night at a farmhouse campsite and sampled our first Mosi beer…the Zambian original. Two more driving days and many snacks later we arrived at Livingstone just on the Zimbabwian border after a night in Lusaka. Highlights included Zebras wandering around our campsite near Lusaka and spotting a giant Flatty Spider thanks to our ever-enthusiastic tour leader, Mat.
We were getting used to the long driving days by now and had developed a real appreciation for the vastness of the continent. Days on the truck were spent reading, sleeping and playing cards with our ‘tour family’. On route we did our outfit swap for our fancy dress river cruise party which was to take place on the Zambezi river. The photos tell it all: Jas becoming a little tarzan and Kirst dressed much more modestly in a mosquito-net-like frock. Had a great night with the tour sipping our drinks on the boat cruise...things got a bit more lively however later that night when the Big Five Cane Spirit came out! Needless to say the next
Kirst was pretty proud of the outift she found for our American tour leader Mat!!!
day was a challenging one...
