Today was a busy day! The morning was spent tickling and feeding elephants… The afternoon was spent having a spot of lunch at Ilala Weavers (and shopping) and then a tour around a local township. And then the last item on the days agenda is a bit of a hardship…. cuddling cheetah!!
We had a feast last night, everything must go! Due to laws in Swaziland you are not allowed to take any food products into the country so we ate and drank until we were fit to burst! Armed with coffee fresh from the percolator (Antons travel companion who was greatly admired by Adrian) we woke […]
