The flight from London was in uneventful and tedious. We were met at Lusaka airport which we were not expecting but the man was very helpful indeed, collecting baggage, getting it onto the next plane, getting us checked in and so on. The flight to Mfuwe was on a small plane - 38 passengers and full. Then a drive of an hour to the Lodge where we arrived about 1130. On the way, there was lots to see
A village with a market
Giraffes and baboons, hippos, birds. I am not doing well on taking photos of birds. The d****** things insist on flying away. At the camp, we discovered that a safari drive was organised for us starting at 1600 hours and we saw all sorts of animals. A lion,lots of buck, even more birds and a leopard.
Then back to the camp for dinner and collapse into bed. I forgot to mention that South Luanga park is on the opposite side of the river so we drove downstream for a couple of kilometres and crossed by what the locals call a pontoon which it is not. A pontoon to me is a wooden bridge which floats. This is a raft which is winched across by two men working very hard. After all, our vehicle is a long wheelbase Toyota Land Cruiser!,
