In defense of poor Bwana: Mitch was asleep and caught off guard! I think that's key here, folks! Given that he's traveled to Africa many times, I'm sure he knows how to take care of himself!
But it's nice that we all care, right Mitch!?

I always appreciate useful travel tips, especially by someone who seems to be well-known in the Valley...

Beside this, I always consider taking pills of any kind only as last option.

Mitch,

Did you see the new Kapamba camp? And did you have any problems with the fuel shortages?

tripster,

I visited Kapamba while the clients were out. Very nice camp with wonderful chalets. Outer walls of the chalets are of reed, inner walls of clay without sharp edges - very earthy and cool. In each chalet is a sunken bath tube, and the side to the river is complete open. Views are not so good - they have a main viewing platform at the river, but the view is very narrowed by trees left and right. Beside this they currently have a small tsetse problem...

Fuel shortages? Not for the camps. But I met self-drivers in Kafue who were desperately seeking for Diesel (management of Lufupa helped them out).

Mitch

cooncat,

Get that boy some Pampers.

The same way others ask about the best rooms to request for the view, will we need to start asking which room Mitch visited so we can avoid the "muddy" beds?

Rocco,

You won't believe it, but today I talked with someone to whom this bad situation occurred during transfer time - and Pampers in personal health kits were part of this discussion.

Bwana,
Didn't realise the sudden awake was the first motion, as it were. What a rude awakening!
I agree that it's better not to take too much medication, and if I'm home I am more able to simply take the time off work and stay at home and let it work through the system. But if I'm AT work or, even more so, travelling, I want to get rid of the symptoms fast.
Anyway, I think we've beaten this leaking horse to death.
Let's talk about the rest of your trip!

Amen Kavey. Lets talk about the trip OR start a new thread on this subject, for Christ's sake.
regards - tom

Hey Bwana,
You're not so mad at us "Mombo maniacs" that you're not going to finish your report, are you???

Waiting patiently.
