A short drive takes us into Zimbabwe to another wonder of the Earth – Victoria Falls where we will spend 2 nights!
Day 15 Kasane to Victoria Falls
Only 90km, but included 90 minutes dealing with the Zimbabwe bureaucracy at the border. Unbelievably crowded, chaotic and convoluted, with mandatory charges way in excess of what Carefree had led us to believe but a group experience we all survived apart from one blip when for 2 minutes I thought my passport had been stolen! It turned up in Jan’s hand – she thought it was hers!!
Currently in the campsite in the town of Victoria Falls waiting for the temperature to drop before we replenish our US dollars supply – the preferred local currency – after our expensive border experience. We are being harassed by the locals – hawkers and baboons – and even camp-site security has tried to sell us motif tee-shirts.
Got our dollars and went to the campsite restaurant (called In-Da-Belly – some sort of pastiche on the colonial heritage) for crocodile stew – but decided on fish & chips instead.
Tomorrow we’re off to the falls – one of the wonders of the world!!
