Walking with Lions

Flew into Victoria Falls from Durban via Jo'Burg (again). Welcomed at customs with the news that despite what we had been told, we would have to pay $45.00 USD before we could enter the country - just another example of redistribution of wealth in practise. Transported to The Kingdom Hotel and Casino. Not bad - opened by Mr Mugabe in 2005. Sort of Las Vegas back street tacky but comfortable. Service and food great. No one in the casino because no one has any money to spend.
Sunset cruise on the Zambesi River up stream from the falls. Hippos, elephants and birdlife visible on banks.
