After checking in and being shown to our room at the Vic Falls Safari Lodge, we once again found ourselves on the road to our next animal experience - the elephant safari. This turned out to be a bit of a disappointment although it was pretty exciting to start with (our elephant was in NO mood for going for a walk and Maritha and I both had visions of ending up on the ground bing a doormat for some angry elephant) Fortunately he calmed down and off we went. 1½ hours later we arrived back with rather sore bums and not having seen a single other animal. To make things worse it started raining heavily half way through the "safari" and we were all drenched by the time the rain coats arrived. It would appear that we would see more water here in central Africa than we saw at home!
