Absolutely incredible! Hope it stays that way mate. Safe travels, and look forward to your next 'wi-fi' zone!

Will report again from Tanzania as I will be there tomorrow, only have 10 minutes left on my battery and no electricity (Eco Lodge) I am at Livingstonia high up on a mountain overlooking the northern part Of Lake Malawi. Too beautiful for words here. Will post some photos next time.
