  • Day 79 – Roadside Recovery Part Two For twenty kilometres from Sioma camp back towards Katima-Mulilo the new road was open.

  • Day 78 – Ngonye Falls The aluminum hull of our boat broke the glassy water as the sun made easy work of tearing apart the storm cloud that had lingered above us all morning. The banks were made up of huge chunks of volcanic basalt Posted by ibeamish in The Scramble for Africa | Dec 15, 2011
  • Day 77 - Roadside Rescue There are another set of Falls two hundred and seventy kilometres west and then north west along the Zambezi.

  • Day 75 – High Tea Laura loves her tea, but she especially loves 'taking tea'.
