With stories of a highly venomous black Mamba snake behind a toilet cistern, road signs denoting 'Hippo country' and roadside pics of elephants, crocs and more hippos remind you that it's not just the thuggish locals to be wary of!
The Marina management have just put up signs in the toilets giving various emergency telephone numbers, including 'snake catcher'. It doesn't say where the anti-venom is kept!
Meanwhile, Mags and I took advantage of a cloudy day today to do a recce of part of the roadtrip to the safari destination. Hopefully the promised hippos and crocs on the riverboat cruise will be more evident than today. We saw nuffink.
It was a nice day though, interspersed with phone calls to chase a delivery.
As a boat part for a 'Yacht in Transit', it should be allowed in duty free. However, the mischievous customs 'coded it' incorrectly - allegedly - so I am having to get it correctly coded if I want to avoid another £50 donation to these Govern-mentally official highwaymen (and ladies!)
