VIC FALLS, DAY 4
My last morning at Vic Falls was spent hunting around for a 100 Trilion dollar note. I only had to walk outside of my hotel and I was met with locals trying to sell me some but none of them were Trillions.
It’s amazing the effort that these people go. After telling them what I wanted they ran off in search of it and came back just a few minutes later.
Now I would like to think I’m no fool. I question everything especially when desaling with random people overseas. I knew the 100 Trillion was rare so was sure to check what I was being offered and wasn’t satisfied.
You could see from the locals face that he also knew it wasn’t and I approached one of the concierge of the hotel who confirmed my suspicions. In the end I had to settle for 100 Billion which isn’t a bad touch but not the same!
- 4th largest river in Africa
- 2,700 km
- It’s source is in Zambia
We left Vic Falls and made our way to the Zambezi River where we would board the Zambezi Queen for 3 days in the Chobe National Park.
The Zambezi Queen is a full board luxury boat offering between 2 and 3 nights cruises along the Chobe River. There is nothing else quite like it and each room offers uninterrupted views of the African landscape. I don’t even need to get out of my bed to look at Elephants anymore!
The boat is really something else and if I’m honest will be a welcome break to the frantic trip it has been so far! Not to mention Dad is still ill so it’s a great place for him to recuperate given he can see everything from the comfort of his bed in preparation for the next leg in Mauritius.
The evening was spent getting a briefing along with the usual Gin & Tonic during sunset!
100 Billion dollars better off and not on a cruise going down the Zambezi, life is good!
