@Whyone? Great stuff. Safe flight, have a great safari, and write a trip report upon your return...

Thanks Matt....I am flying the 'scenic' route via Dubai - hardly the most direct route from UK to Zim, but after my experiences with Zambian last year (schedules ignored both out and rtn, old aircraft, non-existent entertainment system) I am hoping Emirates will be a more reliable option.

 

It will be Sunday afternoon until we reach Mana, but I will be looking out for Anita once I am there.

Just the word "sleep" is making me jealous - very rare in my house with three boys aged 6 and under!

I would love the guarantee of 300 sleeps :)
