Just arrived in Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia

This summer, we will be blogging first from Africa and then from Turkey. 

Here is Perry's Africa blog.. 

I will be escorting a private trip in Zambia, Botswana and Namibia... We will track rare desert rhinos and elephants, raft the Zambezi, and canoe in the Okavanga Delta....It should be an epic trip... Stay tuned...

Met at the airstrip

I just arrived in the Lower Zambezi National Park (Zambia) and already the park is living up to its reputation for wildlife and scenery. I just checked in to my room at the Royal Zambezi Lodge when an elephant came to greet me outside the door. He was happily munching on the sweet Tamarind fruit and then rambled down onto the path for a stroll towards the main lodge. In my opinion, it is always a good sign when an elephant meets you at camp! I did not even have time to pull out my camera yet! Oh well, I am sure there will be lots of other opportunities. The lodge is stunning - set on the river with sweeping vistas across to Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe.

We will have lunch on the deck overlooking the hippos in the river. Then we will set off on a game drive....more soon!
