Jun 10, 2012 - Day 144 to 146 - Mutonondo Wilderness Camp to Lusaka

After nearly four weeks together, it was time to say goodbye to Freya, Anna and Chris. We were keen to get to Lusaka and visit a camping store to buy some warmer sleeping bags (it was beginning to get REALLY cold at night) while the Roe family planned to spend a few days in the wetlands before venturing into Zimbabwe. We penciled in our diaries a date to catch up again in Namibia and do the more remote northern loop together. The night before as we sat around a large fire pit on a rocky bluff at the wilderness camp, we took it in turns of...

May 13, 2012 - A travel day

We board our new truck and set out on our next adventure. Our truck this time is Mercedes, a little bigger but not quite as smooth – no air bags. Bitumen road as we head further into Zambia. The countryside has not changed much since Spitzkop. Long grass with shrubs and sometimes taller trees. The villages on the side are not quite as well appointed as we have seen. The thatching is rarely trimmed and the rondavels smaller. Sometimes there are small rectangle dwellings made with small mud bricks amongst the rondavels. Small crops of corn...

Nov 3, 2011 - Lusaka

- Long driving day today to get to Lusaka - Felt really ill again but spent most of the journey riding in the front again, which did actually help as wasn't nearly so bumpy and much more breeze - felt a little better but still not good. - Mia cooked the "last supper" which was sad and will be sad to leave people who I've met on the trip, and Melanie who I've been sharing a tent with (especially as today was the first day we successfully packed up our tent neatly!) and also Mia and Jan - total change over in Livingstone.

Oct 11, 2010 - Zambia | Livingstone naar Lusaka

(NL) On the road Vandaag wordt het een lange dag. Om 6u gaat de wekker af, want vandaag heb ik "kitchen duty". Het wordt ook onze eerste dag in de truck. Fantastisch om uren door het raam te turen en telkens een ander landschap waar te nemen. Onderweg komen we heel wat kinderen tegen. Allemaal zijn ze dolgelukkig om te zwaaien naar deen truck vol mzyngu. Ik sta er trouwens van versteld in welke goeie staat de wegen zich hier bevinden. Om wat afwisseling te steken in onze lange truckrit, beslissen we een kaartspelletje te spelen. Roland,...

Jun 28, 2010 - Big City Blues

Nothing can really prepare you for the reality of city life in Africa. The pollution, the noise, the chickens and cattle running amongst the chaotic traffic. The hustle and bustle you feel almost makes a mockery of the slow, slow pace of getting anything done. You become very familiar with ques and line-ups (and sometimes need to keep your elbows-up holding your position from budgers and yahoos)! I’ve never been a big city-girl, but city culture in Africa takes on a whole new dimension. The effects of poverty are seen on so many different...

Jun 25, 2010 - Lusaka (Zambia)

June 25/ 10 We have been here in Lusaka (the capital of Zambia) for five days now, and have had the pleasure of meeting up with Samson and the staff at Women for Change. We are very impressed with the local organization so far! We're in the process of preparing for our time as volunteer nurses in the rural town of Lundazi, which is a two-day drive north-east of here. We will be making the journey with Samson, who is a really great guy from WFC...we will probably be departing early next week, though the date of departure seems to continually...

Apr 3, 2010 - Zambia

So we made it to Zambia. In the capital Lusaka at the moment before heading to Livingstone for a few days. The whole place is beautiful, so ridiculously green everywhere, though think we prefer Malawi at it seemed less built up and so it had better views (selfish we know). Lusaka quite developed, very different to the capital of Malawi when we were there yesterday. Excited for Vic falls. Keep us updated with home shiz please.

Jul 14, 2009 - Lusaka

It took over 11 hours to drive to Lusaka on good roads. We had to stop quickly in Chipata to have our compressor fixed. It was an interesting stop since we got to meet some 3rd-4th generation Indians who ran an electronics store. It was interesting hearing how their family had arrived in Africa over a hundred years ago from India. The capital city (1.2 million people) feels like a modern metropolis you might see anywhere. Given Zambia's poverty, it wasn't what we'd expected. Street lights, sidewalks, modern buildings and fancy cars were a...
