You are welcome
The phrase we hear most on this trip. A lot of the time when the locals are trying to sell us something.
After travelling down through Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Malawi and parts of Zimbabwe we have reached Antelope park. This morning we walked with Lion cubs and this afternoon we are watching them feed. We then go on a night stalk with the lions and tomorrow a lunar safari on elephants.
We are camped down by an oxbow lake in a campsite with hot running water. A bit of a revalation on this trip. The temperature outside is about 30 degrees and the beer is cold. Complete bliss.
Just been chatting with the Zimbabwe cricket coach who is an interesting bloke. No sign of Bob mugabe or his henchman though.
In a few days we head down through bulawayo and then to Vic Falls where we intend to do rafting on the Zambezi. Should be meeting up with Auntie Sue for high tea in the Vic falls hotel. A real throw back to the rhodesian era.
Katie is becoming a right David attenborough after the lion cubs, and i thought she wasn't a big fan of nature.
Have to say after being a little apprehensive about zimbabwe before we came away, it has proved the most welcoming and stunning place we've ever been.
