Yes yes, i know im a tad behind but.... means will be brief and to the point!!!!
Wednesday 11th - Crossed the border into Zambia. Went to a market and saw some locals doing and making stuff with tin. Roads were bad, didnt get as far as originally planned and put up tents in dark.
Thur 12th - Headed to the capital today and had an interesting lunch stop with the guys lunch taking an age to come. so much for fast food! Cut my thumb quite spectacularly with my knife.
Fri 13th - We visited the Kariba dam today which ws quite impressive. there was a massive croc at the bottom. had some amazing views of the lake at our lunch stop and then headed to our campsite. the sunset was amazingly gorgeous over the zambezi.
Sat 14th - We started our canoing safari today and i was sharing with zoe. we realised after about half an hour tht our canoe was the one where the alcohol had been loaded onto. nice! lol. Ha, me and zoe got mock charged by a hippo. our guide nearly wet himself! we found it quite amusing though! Had a swim after lunch and i managed to rip my shorts very spectacularly. Me n zoe were having such a laugh tht at points we couldnt paddle cos were laughing too hard. mucho fun. We did a bush camp on an island and me n zoe cooked - everyone was very complimentary of it!
Sunday 15th - It was so cool to get so close to the hippos and also had an awesome view of loads of elephants. amazing experience. again, had quite a giggle! swam more in the river, played lots, lots of mud throwing and shrieking! We sat in the river for ageees after lunch to cool down. saw massive group of elephants drinkking. all good! we cooked again in the evening and harry had a convo with a hyena!
Monday 16th - Watched the sun rise and took lots of photos. we canoed to our finishing spot and then got driven back to the campsite. spent the rest of the day driving to Livingstone and arrived quite late at campsite.
Tuesday 17th - Headed into Livingstone in the morning but didnt really need to do much so me tom n harry sat in the pub until were picked up at 1.30. lol. had a relaxing afternoon, a girly chat with zoe and sat in the bar in the evening. it was quite spectaular - i dropped my drink, caught it with my legs and didnt actually spill much at all!
