Zambia was fantastic!

Jump to last reply

Back for already more than a week, playing around with my pictures on photoshop, i have just put some pictures on my website so for those who want to see: www.madelza.nl

I dont know where to start writing, we loved all of it and would go back without a doubt. Rocco, you were right about my itinerary, great choice i made (thanks to your tips), it was a lot of moving but for a first time it was excellent, every lodge was wonderful, including the Royal Livingstone. If I'd go again i wouldnt know which to cut out.

Sausage Tree was beautiful to arrive at after long night and day of travelling. We got there for sundowners and and it was magical.
We were at Sausage for 2 nights and did 3 gamedrives. Mostly we were alone with the guide, once we went with another couple (German & Irish) living in Lusaka which was a good chat. We loved the canoeing trip through that "forgotthename" Channel. It was very exciting, some hippos do actually get pretty close! We never paddled ourselves, werent asked either and the guids guided us for a 4 hour trip so we could enjoy the scenery. Tigerfishing was hilarious, Bert caught one after 5 minutes 10 pounds, and i caught one after 30 minutes, 12 pound (see the pic on my site) So we were back soon again for sundowners together with the Sausage crew (Jane, Jason, Rodney and others). Food&wine at Sausage were very good, the after dinner drinks around the fire place on the deck were lovely. On the day we were to be transferred by boat to Chiawa they served lunch in the middle of the river, with 8 guests we left camp by boat to all have lunch in the river, very special i thought.
Any questions are welcome, next is Chiawa Camp
