Next Day
More game drives in South Luangwa National Park. Do-it-yourself safaris aren't so expensive if you stay at Flatdogs, a backpacker camp. We've already mentioned that camping costs $5 per night. Gamedrives cost $20 per trip and the park fees cost $20 per day. Fifty dollars per day, per person, is the cheapest you can expect to pay while on safari. Go to a game lodge or hire an expert guide and the price jumps to at least $300 per day per person.
Tracking a lion...
and finding him in the bushes.
We think the carmine bee-eater is the best looking African bird.
This plant has developed a good defense mechanism against grazing: it's leaves curl up if touched.
If you're a bird you can stand on a hippo's head.
