Livingstone – Lusaka, Zambia
A early morning start sees us head north through southern Zambia. During our drive, we pass through some of the local villages and towns of Zambia. Zambia flourished during the copper boom in the 1960’s and was therefore able to build a solid infrastructure in the main mining and farming communities. Following the fall of the copper industry, Zambia was then left virtually bankrupt and the infrastructure, of which the country was so proud, fell to ruins. However, foreign investment and a rise in the mining industry allowed Zambia to thrive once again. There is now a significant difference evident between the cities that boast foreign stores, banks and even imported cars, and the villages and towns that still need to catch up. Our campsite today is often frequented by the local wildlife, including the biggest antelope in the world – the Eland.
