Livingstone – Lusaka, Zambia
We arise in the early morning and make our way through southern Zambia. During our drive, we pass through some of the local villages and towns of Zambia. Zambia was flourishing during the copper boom in the 1960s and was thus able to build a solid infrastructure in the main mining and farming communities. Following the fall of the copper industry, Zambia was then left 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 once again begin to thrive. 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 progress rather drastically. Our campsite today is often frequented by the local wildlife, including the biggest antelope in the world – the Eland.
