... did a volunteer walk in the mid morning and a client walk in the afternoon. Now we are going out for pizza with the owner and manager of the lodge and some volunteers. Tomorrow I will get to do research for the first time in the Zambezi national ...
... and we walk to the border where our driver is waiting. We clear customs and walk on the bridge that separates Zimbabwe and Zambia. We stay in Livingstone, the border town on the Zambian side in a cosy place in town. It’s peaceful here and a nice place to relax. Zambia is a confusing place with everything quoted in USD but payment is made in the local currency. So far so good, but the exchange rate used depends on operators with a top-up of anything between 10 to 25%. They ...
... it's 5, 4, 3, 2, 1..bungee! And they've given me a slight nudge and I know I'm done for now and the only way is down. The feeling of weightlessness as you just free fall is amazing! Didn't scream as much as Sarah...my heart probably stopped beating... But as you fall you can see the whole circle of a rainbow and fall right into it it's so cool!

The money raised goes towards saving these beautiful creatures. Heather was in her element, walking alongside these lovely cats, scratching their backs and getting up close and personal.

TravelPod Member ReviewsTabonina Guesthouse Livingstone
Even before arriving at Tabonina, I knew it would be a wonderful experience - I had been communicating with the owner, Laurent, for several weeks prior to arriving, and he was always happy to answer my numerous questions on local tours, transport, and visa issues for Zambia and surrounding countries. It's a simple guesthouse, but very cozy and comfortable, and the staff make you feel right at home - always smiling and happy to chat. We ended up in the family suite, which is a thatched dwelling that appears to be in the traditional local style, which remained surprisingly cool during the day and night, even though it didn't have any air conditioning. Would definitely stay here again.
