Bwana - Leaving soon?

Mitch - If I recall correctly, you, too, are leaving soon for Zambia, yes? Please remind us of your plans!

Hi Mitch,

Can't wait to read your trip report -- I'm particularly curious abouy Shumba and the Busanga Trails 'circuit' in Kafue. I've heard that you can follow leopard on the hunt up there.

Cheers,
Julian

Kavey,

Actually it's not an aardvark - it's a small teddy bear. I plan to make some nice photos of him and wild animals for a future project targeting at small kids - "Teddy's Wild Adventures in Africa" or something like this.

Julian,

Busanga Trails are not unknown to me, I've already been there three years ago - and I don't expect any changes. So if you have any specific questions, just ask.

Mitch

It didn't work for me, dang it, something off with my computer. But I understand you're going to Zambia, so that's good.

I'm sure you'll have an amazing trip!

Leely,

I'm so sorry. Maybe you're using an old web browser?

Mitch

That's pretty cool Mitch! I wish DigitalGlobe would shoot more sat pics of Africa at basically city level so one can clearly see the waterholes, etc!

With Google one can see the deck chairs on our deck in the backyard here in Falls Church!

Leely, it's a bit slow at first so give it time to load.

Well, I'm "working" at home today. You all can probably tell how much I've gotten done. I will look again from my office, where everything's more high tech.

Have a great trip. I was looking at your virtuelle safari map. Is the itinerary on there re when you will be at certain locations? If not, would you re-post it here so we can be at the correct camp at the correct time?
Thanks--nice to live vicariously through someone if I can't go myself.

bat,

if you zoom into the map and click on the camp ('C') and airport/airstrip ('A') markers you will find all the information: dates, flight numbers, websites of operators and airports...

Hey Mitch: I had done that before and had checked out the camps, but I did not realize those were dates initially--I guess because of the reverse numbering system that we use in the U.S. [how do you do a "sheepish"/embarassed smiley?]
