The first road trip was to Siavonga, a nice place at the Kariba Lake. I have also never been there so good for everyone. We jumped in the RAV4 and started our trip, after 10 minutes there was a FLASH and the police got us. I negotiated with them (as is quite normal in Zambia) and could continue with 10 dollars less.

In Siavonga we followed the road uphill to the Hill Top Lodge where we booked our room. A basic but decent place. The weather was nice and we decided to have a look at the Lake Kariba Inn hotel to have some lunch and to enquire about boat trips on the lake. We had a very nice lunch and enjoyed the view before we got on the boat. For 2 hours we speeded over the lake and enjoyed the views and some beers. What a holiday feeling!

After a brief visit to the local village and its market family Van Gaal could witness some features of the real African life. At night played a bit of pool and drank some beers before a good night of rest.
