Next Day
Time to leave Mana Pools National Park because we don't want to push our 'animal-encounter luck' any longer. James also leaves and we go with him to the park boundary. Then we hitch a ride with an outgoing truck that takes us to Zimbabwe's border with Zambia. Since trucks must wait for hours (sometimes days) to clear customs, we walk across the border and catch a bus on the other side. By midafternoon we reach Lusaka, Zambia's capital city.
.Say goodbye to Mana Pool's elephants. The male elephants in this park are habituated to humans so it's possible to walk close to them. James warns us not to do this with elephants in other parks.
Who's controling the tsetse's?
Hitch a ride to the border, then walk across.
