Am having a great time, had an amazing sunset cruise on the Zambezi, hippos wallowing and crocodiles lounging on the bank, beautiful sunset. The next day was white water rafting, I was worried we might get hurt but it was so exciting and fun like you wouldn't believe, had a swim alongside the raft for a bit.......so warm. But then cam the walk out ....it honestly nearly killed me'!!!!! Heat exhaustion and my legs nearly giving out., thanks to one of the great guide pulling me up by my hand I made it. Tra is was first up. got quite sun burnt with out realising tho. The next day, two days ago tra is did the flying fox, zip line and gorges swing at vic falls....the gorge swing insane and scary!! But really fun and wanted to do it again. We flew to joburg yesterday straight into a thunder storm, lightening hit the wing and the plane jumping about....our stomachs in our mouths a few times. Last night we did the sunset drive at Kruger, was great, hippos, water buffalo, elephants, giraffes, and more. Today was a 4am get up time for a full day in Kruger, travis is really tired so stayed at gecko lodge, was really hot around 38 the guide said. Have seen for of the big five...just the leopard to go. Saw an amazing male loin today resting under a tree just a few metres away from the road.....was soooo cool, baby giraffes, hippos grazing. Kruger is different than I expected ....don't really know what I expected. We have another full day in the park tomorrow. I will put some pics up soon, wifi pretty limited at gecko lodge' but check out wild horizons website for the rafting......am so pleased we did it.
