Tue 5 Apr- Boat cruise on the Zambezi

We had a relaxing morning, with a bit of a sleep in and then booked in some activities for the week: John’s helicopter ride for tomorrow, trip to Chobe Thursday and dinner at the Boma restaurant Fri night and of course a sunset cruise on the Zambezi for this afternoon. We’re planning on wandering around the falls by ourselves tomorrow. When I did the research for the trip you could walk to the Zambian side of the falls and do a day trip to Botswana on a Single Entry Visa but seems that this changed beginning of the year and get hit up for another visa charge and as of 1 April you also have to pay exit fees so makes it a bit expensive which is unfortunate.

Had some pampering and some internet time to catch up on some of our blog posts, mail etc. as the internet here is a lot faster!

We set off on our cruise along the Zambezi and spotted a few animals: Hippos, a tiny crocodile a bunch of birds etc.


It was an open bar which is pretty lost on me when I only manage to drink two drinks on the whole cruise. It was a nice relaxing ride and we got to watch and of course photograph the African sunset.
