Given the party that we had last night, it was a bit of a slow morning.  While some people went on walking safari, we took it easy on the houseboat.  Around 9 AM, we packed up our stuff and loaded it all onto the transfer boat for our ride back to Kariba.  We were ready to leave by 10 AM.

 

Once we were on our way, we had a brunch on the boat.  The cruise back was nice and relaxing and we lazed around on the upper deck.  Half way to Kariba, the boat stopped and we were given the chance to go for a swim.  As the water is deep here, there are no crocs so it is safe to swim without a cage.  We had a great time jumping in from the top of the boat.  We must have done that about a dozen times.  The water was great to swim in.

 

We arrived back at the campsite at 4:30 PM.  We got our stuff organised and then took it easy until dinner time.  We went to bed quite soon after dinner to catch up on some of our sleep.
