I caught up on some sleep, had a wonderful bath, did some admin;emails and my log, and met Kimba, their adopted 11 month old elephant, who had been orphaned in South Africa until Janine had come to the rescue.
Kimba is an absolute darling, a real tinker, getting up to all sorts of mischief, but with a coy smile; just like my youngest daughter Mica, she'll get away with murder!.
My hosts, had invited a couple of their old friends; John and Phillipa over to Dinner, which was a real treat
The trip back to Harare was uneventful, but James and Janine, kindly took me to their home in Harare, for some R&R and then on a trip around the various neighbourhoods, stopping off at a good friend's home for a coffee (well beer actually), before dropping me off at my lodgings.
You could not hope to meet a nicer couple, and if you are ever thinking about a trip to Africa you would be a fool to firstly, miss out on Zimbabwe, and secondly not to book a Varden safari. I know I sound like a bit of a sales rep here, but the trip I have just had is going to be hard to beat for so many reasons, but probably most of all because I have made some new fantastic friends, I will miss their company - and you just can't better that.
