|Staying in a campsite in Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe side of the falls) for the next few nights. Makes a nice change from rushing around constantly. Can hear the roar of the falls when going to sleep in the tent... very strange. This is probably the cleanest country we've been in so far and the only one we need to pay a visa into. The Irish seem to be welcomed everywhere else for free.
Walked with the lions today. 4 lions. 2 male and 2 female accompanied us for 1.5 hours through the bush.. really brilliant experience. Graham got a few scrapes on his hands from the experience and another guy got bitten on his calf. Might cancel the India leg of
our journey and volunteer at the lion camp instead. They're trying to reintroduce them to the wild cos they're becoming endangered.Picked up another 7+2 PAX to add to our little group of 3 (ranging from 18yrs to 25). 7 had been volunteering in schools in Jinja, Uganda for around 3 months. Most of them went individually and befriended the others there. They were making their way South to Cape Town over a couple of months before returning home. It's a breath of fresh air to have new people on the truck... By this stage, myself, Graham and Paul had stopped speaking to each other while on the truck, preferring to read or sleep.
