We boarded the plane at 1:45am and departed at 2:30. Three hours later, we landed in South Africa - about 5am. I had breakfast with my family at about 9ish after which we boarded and we were off to Zambia. We randomly had to land in Victoria Falls (Zim), then went onto Livingstone (Zam). The hour or two on the tarmac provided a little time to sleep with the consequence of a sore neck. Took off again and landed in Zambia 30 minutes later. We got to see a little bit of the falls from the sky which was nice. So I was in four countries (Tanzania, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and then back to Zimbabwe) in one day and was on 3 flights - that is definitely my record.
The Lokuthula Lodges were so beautiful - such a mind and environmental shift from backpacking and camping to staying in a lodge, knowing you are going back to the backpacking. We went for dinner at the hotel - the food was incredible. Tried warthog and Bream (fish). I was exhausted by the end of the day and ended up crashing early.
