I have already reported on Saturday morning on the houseboat. We arrived back at 10H30 and still had to shower, pack up and have brunch. I then had some time to investigate using the minor border crossing from near Kongola via Singalamwe/Imushu into Zambia and the seldom visited Sioma-Ngwezi National Park. Curt could not help me at all but did phone around to no avail. I tried the 2 numbers given to me by Piet “Toit” also to no avail, possibly because it was already late Saturday morning and out of office hours. The other bugbear was the foot and mouth barrier at Kongola.
Another good night after some good beef cooked on the fire. Already I am champing at the bit to get out into the wilds and some proper bush camping again. The houseboat 24hr trip on the Zambezi is scheduled for tomorrow so I think this will fit the bill to some extent. I am going to have to get used to shared campsites as this will be the sort of accommodation available for much of our travels. Later this week we plan to move on to the National Parks in the Caprivi and this certainly will fulfill my present relative antisocial state of mind.
How did the old tune go again?....... We’re on the move again……..
