This morning we departed Cape Town on a flight to Durban (British Airways).
Once we arrived there we got a snack for the long drive to the St. Lucia Estuary. I got some food at KFC as we only had 30 minutes to find food. We had one hiccup – the air conditioning on the coach (bus) that was intended for us broke on the way to the airport. They called for a replacement coach and we waited for about 30 minutes for the replacement to arrive.
We made it to the St. Lucia Estuary about 15 minutes before our scheduled boat ride at 16:00. There were a pod of hippos across from the boat landing. On the cruise we saw many hippos, a couple of nile crocodiles, an eagle and some other birds.
We checked into a very nice Protea hotel and enjoyed an included buffet dinner. They had roast beef and chicken (as well as some vegetarian food I don’t eat).
Everyone called it an early night because tomorrow will be an early morning.
