Zambia
A visit to Zambia and Botswana exceeded my every expectation. The people, the landscapes and the animals were fascinating, and the time spent getting there was richly rewarded.

The daily struggle for survival that we witnessed is a reminder to appreciate every moment we have on Earth and to do all we can to tread lightly here.
