Sunset Over the Zambezi

By Catherine de Lange | July 23, 2013 | Zambia

The last few days of the trip have been spent off the grid, visiting some of the more remote parts of the country including the incredible Macha Research Trust, where some of the most cutting edge research into malaria (in particular), HIV and TB are carried out.

I’ll be writing more about that another time.

Today, we find ourselves in Livingston, and after an afternoon visiting the Livingston General Hospital, we were invited to the boat club to watch the sun set over the Zambezi river.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be at the legendary Zambezi, and I’m hoping to cross over to Zimbabwe tomorrow to see the Victoria Falls in all their glory!

A little luxury...

At left is a photo of my room at the David Livingston, complete with mosquito nets. Very important, as we’ve been learning, though these are of the fairy princess variety, not the field-station kind we’ve been using for the past few days.
