Zambia - Botswana - South africa - Mozambique - Swaziland - south africa : )






just a quick note - I am still alive ... from Livingston, Zambia (the vicoria falls) we headed into Nambia for a few days ... great adventures in a Mokoro (tradtional boots) and hippos were included ... in Botswana I flew over the delta and camped in a rhino sanctuary ...

Next stop South Africa - Pelesnburg National Park - waking up to frost on the inside of our tents for the first time ("disco tent")... great walking safari - being only 10m away from rhinos = scary and amazing .... Joburg was my shopping stop = hot water bottle and blankets to keep me warm ... also a pair of jeans since I lost mine in thailand :) ...

On the way to Kruger National Park we stopped at phenomenal views of the three sisters ... more wildlife adventures in Kruger followed by a trip to Mozambique ... where I swam with whalesharks and saw hump backs enjoying themselves in the Indian Ocean ...

Swatsiland - one of the last kingdoms in Africa ... Horseback riding among wildlife ... and village tour, dancing with the tribe women and singing along ...

Back into South Africa - St. Lucia - unable to walk down stairs properly - ankle of a 500 lbs women :( ... but a great way to be carried around :) - Durban - short but sweet - wonderful city right by the ocean

Even further down - coffee bay - inlcuding a little hike to the "whole in the wall" - beautiful coastline with dramatic rocks and hills in the background ... Hocksback - back to "disco tents" - very cold but gorgeous - lords of the rings feel .... Addo National Park - surprise" elephants :)) Today: Tsitikamma national park ANd the world highest bungy!!! After consulting my black and blue ankle the decision was made to fall into this beautiful gorge, surrounded by the indian ocean and large green hills in the background on the rubber line :) ... high on adrenaline ... lotsoflove
