Challenge: White Water Rafting Post 3 - In Transit

First stop, Johannesburg.


Ten hours of flying South African Airways from London Heathrow whereupon we catch a connecting flight onwards to Livingstone, Zambia. At the time of writing we're on the second leg of this trip. It's about 11:30am local time and in about an hour we're to meet Cornelius, who will be our host and guide for the latter part of the trip.

I say latter, because the first two days we spend here we're going to be staying in Chobe National Park - which, according to the itinerary is...

"located in a unique setting where four different African countries meet, (Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe), the park itself boasts one of the largest concentrations of elephants and buffalos in Africa as well as other spectacular game viewing"...

'Magical' doesn't quite cover it.

I'm going to stop reading the information guide now, I can see what is planned for when we arrive and to be honest, I don't want to spoil the surprise.


I'm glad the winners are getting a couple of days to relax, it looks like the tail end of the week is going to be *extreme*, in every sense of the word.

At this point I would normally write something typically get up and go like 'Bring. It. On.' but as I said, that can wait..

For now.. let's just get to Zambia!


See you all very soon.
