And so, with the confirmation of my safari I was able to book flights. Through my travel agent, who offered me a 25 hour trip via Doha and a 21 trip back for roughly SEK8500? Nosireebob, I make my own arrangements, thank you very much. Through Orbitz I found flights clocking in 17 h down, 14 h up and billing me SEK7100. If you want something done, you'd better do it yourself. Anyway, as of lunch, Thursday Feb 14 I'm off, landing in Cape Town in the morning. And then it's Africa, baby! I can almost hear the roaring of the gazelles, the chattering of the crocodiles and the rumble of the jungle.
