... come together (Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe). We clear out of Botswana, and then cross the river to Zambia and clear in on the other side. It is a short drive from there to Livingstone, and our final camp. We throw luggage into our tents (those who have luggage), and immediately take off on a sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River above the Falls. We can see the clouds of spray rising in the distance, and we look forward to exploring the Falls ...

We were also advised to only approach the lions from the rear and to stand erect whenever in front of them to avoid eliciting playful behavior. Following those rules we ...
... crocodiles in the river. The cruise was open bar, with hors d'oeuvres, and we enjoyed gin and tonics and delicious "Zambezi Sunset" cocktails as we cruised up and down the river. The sunset was spectacular, possibly the best we've seen on our trip. It was such a fun time, but we were still exhausted from the bus ride so we crashed immediately after eating dinner out (crocodile is quite tasty, by the way). The next morning, March 26 (Day 91), we took our hostel's ...
