OH!! Haahaa. I see. Well, yes, maybe this is going to be kind of like a Rocco decision! Perhaps I'll hold off on posting any more until I REALLY have it down. I got a huge kick out of Rocco's camera thread. First he was going to get the Rebel XT, and ended up with two 20Ds and a battery of lenses!! Do I really sound that bad??!!
(Anyway, it's really not polite to talk about others when they can't defend themselves. But then again, who cares. He's in Africa.) ;-)

RE Mombo: If I hadn't waited too long (a mere 8 months in advance) I would have booked Mombo for this year. Oh well...I did five wonderful days at Londoz instead. It probably cost less too.

Cheers,
Julian

Personally, I love Rocco's threads -- they're very amusing, and rather educational! I think the bulk of the camera thing must have happened whilst I was in Botswana -- by the time I came back he had settled on the 20D (I think).

I think most of us are just as indecisive, but Rocco shares his indecision more than most people.

Cheers,
Julian

Yes, one thing is sure: without Rocco this forum is only half as valuable.

Mitch,

The Luamfwa website says that they are one of only three permanent lodges in the park. Chchele Presidential is another one -- what is the third? Mfuwe?

Cheers,
Julian

Mitch - I have left my heart in so many places I've traveled I've lost count!

I hope you two know I was just giving Rocco a good ribbing!

Julian,

Mfuwe (www.mfuwelodge.com) is the third. And Puku Ridge (http://www.star-of-africa.com/circui.../pukuridge.htm) would be the fourth if you add tented lodges. Btw, Mfuwe/Bushcamp Company just have opened a bush camp that stays open until December: Kapamba (www.bushcampcompany.com/camp-kapamba.htm).

Mitch

Sharon,

Kapamba is located in the same area as the other camps of the Bushcamp Company, south of Mfuwe sector, halfway between Mfuwe Bridge and Luamfwa Lodge. On my interactive itinerary map it's located near Bilimungwe.

Sorry to confuse you- yes it's the same cooncat. I re-registered from my new computer at home and didn't have all my info with me, so....it was just easier!

I think I'm going to take a break from the forum tonight. This hurricane stuff is really intense. I can't believe what's going on down south. If any of you reading this are from there or have loved ones there I am truly sorry. What a mess. Talk to everyone later.
Peace~
