Description: There are many lessons to be learned when travelling through Africa – there are border post delays, money changing hassles at same, roads can often only loosely be described as such and driving at night is too dangerous to contemplate. But then there are the pleasures of buying a piece of meat at dusty roadside butchery and having it fried right there, or the warm welcome and cold beer at a safari camp, under the watchful eye of a hippopotamus on the stoep. Yes, really. At Kafue in Zambia, Justin goes on games drives, seeing magnificent elephants, lions, zebra and antelope. After a spectacular scarlet sunset, there’s an after-dark walking safari with every sense on high alert. The message? That game parks can take up the economic slack in Zambia once its natural resources ie copper have been exhausted.
