Thursday, July 3rd, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, Swaziland


We almost didn’t get into Swaziland.  Quinton had a full passport, with no blank page on which the immigration official could place her stamp.  His new passport is at home in Cape Town.  And he thought he could talk his way around the rule, and get her to place it on a page with some room on it.  Turns out he did, but it took some pretty good theatrics and much sweet talk.  But she definitely could have re-routed our trip had she insisted on the rule that you need one blank page.

Today was mostly a transit day, so there are few photos.  We’re staying at the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, in a very large reed and branch basket about fifteen feet high and thirty feet wide.  It even has a bathroom connected to it, and a fan overhead.  There are about ten of them arranged in a circle, and we made our way through kudus, impalas, wart hogs, and hippos who also find this area home.  The name says it, and we’re just visitors.  Tomorrow morning, we’ll see who else is in our neighborhood.
