MONDAY 23 DECEMBER – BULAWAYO TO VIC. FALLS We packed up camp and walked into town for breakfast, then took a taxi out to the edge of town and began hitching. It started to rain soon after but we only had to wait for about half an hour for a lift with some young, dumb, Zimbabwean youngsters. The male was a showoff and sped all the way, which suited us, as we were at Victoria Falls 4 hours later.
The camp at Vic Falls was a pitiful scene of bedraggled tents and mud-filled caravans after 7 days of perpetual rain. We set up camp beside a tree and I dug drainage ditches all around the tent, as it was obvious that a lot of water had been flowing through the campsite.
