The anti-poaching unit on the Luangwa River protects the animals from local poachers. They discovered us when we set up our campsite next to the river.
Final arrangements just before the border crossing to Malawi. Upcoming: Downhill!

Goodbye Malawi! On the way back, acacias and the red-burned sand contained by the iron in the ground enchant our slopes.
We thank all bikers who were with us on the tour. It was once again a unique experience!
