        9/12- we didn't have to leave the hotel until 10:40 this morning so we had a nice leisurely morning. We had about an hour and a half flight to Johannesburg and then we transferred to a nearby hangar for a private chartered flight to Madikwe. The plane was very nice.

        ... River Camp. It was all it bit chaotic as we walked in as the afternoon game drives were just about to start so the place was full of people milling around.

        ... so we're going to miss the group I think almost as much as the place.
        I was never particularly interested in visiting Africa before and I think if we hadn't had the connection there's a pretty good chance I would never have come. And I know you can't miss what you've never had, but I think it would have been a real ...
