          Hi Elissa, my son and two friends are backpacking and will be seeing you people in about a week's time. He is from George South Africa. They would like to know if one can pitch a two-man tent at the backpackers and what the cost would be. Read about your fees for the Dorms which might be believe it or not be a bit much. They want to prove that they can do Cape Town to Cape McClear and back in less than R200/day in 20 days. Regards JS de la Bat

          Hi there When you say there is a free shuttle to VIc Falls - is that the Falls in Zambia or Zimbabwe? I am going to be at Fawlty Towers for four nights and wanted to spend two days in Livingston (going down to Chobe) and then spend two days at Vic Falls in Zimbabwe. But i thought i could stay at Fawlty tours and commute two mornings from Fawlty Towers to Vic Falls in Zimbabwe. How would that go? Thanks in advance. Michael
