Thursday 23rd of October 2014 and my alarm went off just after 7 o'clock. I popped open a Diet MAX first thing. Took me about 2 hours to get ready for breakfast and at 10 o'clock I was in the reception to check out. They called a taxi and we were soon on our way to the train station and was very lucky.
There was a train leaving in 1 minute and I just made it on board before the train left. I saw the departure time on the monitor when I entered the train station and I thought it was a goner. But I made it on board before they closed the doors.
And I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there wasn't many passengers on the train and I had no problem with my luggage.
Seems like it is my day today, 3 hours before departure and check in was open. Check in and security was very quick and I was in SAS - Star Alliance lounge 10 minutes after getting off the train. And that was less than 90 minutes after checking out from BEST WESTERN Hotel Duxiana in Helsingborg.
I fired up my computer to see if there was any updates on my African safari. There was an e-mail from Siyabona Africa and they asked if I still wanted to go if they could ask for discount. Well, it was not about the price, it was about how they were handling the whole thing.
I got an e-mail from Made in Africa with an updated quotation and I decided to choose this company. Well, they were firs and I really need to make sure I get a reservation as I have booked my flight and 6 nights on Victoria Falls Hotel in Zimbabwe.
I spent the evening yesterday to set up the tours in Zimbabwe and Zambia while staying at Victoria Falls Hotel and I found that they had Devil's Pool as an option. So yes, it looks to be OK.
