Wednesday, September 19th
Today we were up at 2:30 AM! It was our earliest start of the trip because we needed to have our luggage on the bus and heading to Cape Town’s airport by 4:00 AM. We checked in at the airport for about a 2 hour flight to Johannesburg. Then we had another flight from Johannesburg to Livingstone, Zambia. When we landed at the airport in Zambia it was a long line to get our entrance visa which cost $50.00 per person. Once we were through the line and had claimed our luggage we met one of our guides, Duncan. We boarded smaller buses that took us from the airport, stopped at the Zambia border checkpoint, then drove to the Zimbabwe checkpoint and had to collect our passports a second time.
The border crossings were quite interesting to see and experience.
By the time we arrived at our hotel, The Kingdom, we didn’t have much time before our scheduled sunset cruise.
We had a great time on our sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. We didn’t realize that we would see wildlife as we cruised down the river. We saw elephants,
It was a relaxing way to end our long day!
Tomorrow we will visit Victoria Falls!
