... base of the falls. Our guide sent us with a poncho (to keep dry) and a slingshot (to ward off the baboons -- I kid you not). He said if we just aimed the slingshot at the baboons, it would scare them off. Except for one big baboon, he said that when the big one sees the slingshot, he gets agitated. A little more direction on which was the "big agitated baboon" would have been helpful. But he sent us off. When we got to the trailhead, another friendly guide gave us a stick, and said ...

... flying British Airways, the crew are very nice; must be african hospitality. At the airport, our safari guide picks us up in a comfortable mini-van. Booking a safari at the last-minute is eventful. I have to pay in cash, dollars, and I was able to do get dollars at the airport in Johannesburg.
