Day 302 (2nd July) – Kafue

13 07 2011

We took a boat down the Kafue River(a large tributary of theZambezi) to a small bush camp on the river bank and had a lazy afternoon chatting, drinking and watching some local African dancers around the camp fire. We are now thankfully well out of the deserts of Namibia and Botswana making the temperature quite pleasant.

The fairly flat landscape had made way for deep valleys carved out by the strong flowing Kafue River. The steep valley sides are littered with small trees and shrubs, but unfortunately little or no wildlife as most have been hunted.

The following morning we went on a largely uninteresting village walk. The walk involved us meeting this guy called Chris, who showed us around his village in the hills. Apart from lots of mumbling from Chris and a bit of bashful dirt kicking the whole experience was a bit awkward.
