Shopping on one of the markets of the many villages we cross. Tomatoes are almost always there, just like the “local greens”, of which many are reminiscent of spinach.
Incredible spectacle: When we arrive at our night camp, we lay down on the prow and watch three elephants during the courtship ritual.
Preparation for dinner in scorching heat: near the Chongwe it can be 42° Celsius in the shade during the day. The only thing that helps is drinking and cooling off in the river.
The wide view over Lake Kariba always offers spectacular sunsets.
Dinner is saved: We buy fresh fish at the market just before our tent camp. This one ends up on the grill and then in our stomachs. Yummy!
A look behind the scenes: This is what a local pub looks like from the inside. Incredibly loud, with the smell of sweat in the air. But everyone is exuberant, drinking and dancing.
Finally some phone reception again: After a hard day of riding, it is luxury enough for us to lie down and send a few messages home.
Through the thicket: Sometimes the right path is barely visible.
We thank all bikers who were with us on the tour. Also our chef Clifford and all the locals who showed us the way.
