So we set off towards Katima Mulilo from Livingstone. Traveling on a tar road making it a faster than usual journey.  The surrounds look familiar as the Mopani trees dominate the road side.  The villages are scattered and small.  One difference here is that the hedges around the huts are planks gut from what looks like Kyat. Obviously, in abundance.  The villages also sport a big variety of furniture made from the same wood.  I recognize the beds in the same style as the one my dad has, bought in Ovambu land many years ago.

We crossed the Zambezi River and followed for as far as the road would allow. The road became a gravel road – and to boot it was being worked on.  This made for a slow drive.  We reached Kabula about an hour before sun set. The camp has lush green grass and warm showers.  The staff brought us a huge load of fire wood which we could not finish – but gladly packed to take along.

We met Peter, the owner of the lodge and his right hand man.   Mike and Carlos had a good chat to Peter about road conditions ahead and what to expect at Liuwa.  We would go to bed early as the trip toward Liuwa would take most the day.  We would have to stay over one more night before entering Liuwa.
