Hi everyone,

As we have started a new contract and will be visiting quite a few countries in Africa over the coming months, I thought it good to keep you updated of where I will be as a few trips are already complete to Mozambique and Namibia.

Scheduled countries:
Namibia
Botswana
Zimbabwe
Zambia
Mozambique
Malawi
Angola
Ethiopia
DRC
Nigeria
Swaziland
Lesotho

Unfortunately most of the trips will by with the SAA birds and not with the lux... Still hoping though.
Sure there will be some stories and good pics to follow soon.

Landed in Windhoek today and will be returning on Friday.

What a beautiful place! Moz is still one of my favorite destinations. So sad it had to be ruined by war, but then again, if it hadn't it most probably would have been over commercialized by now and not worth a visit.

Keep the pictures coming.

Awesome view and very neat town!
It is sad although development everywhere and foreign currency flowing around so things are on they way up.
But will probably still take a while.

In Tete now and have a great view of the Zambezi!!

Still in Tete, I'm not too sure what this place was called, but after a scorching 41 degree day with a pool, a great view of the Zambezi in the background and ice cold beer, it didnt really matter either!

Places like that are very well hidden, I can't even make out which side of the river you are on through the thick of the trees.

Place looks very nice.....

Well Should be off to Kitwe Zambia in the next week or so.

Chat soon....

Must be a bummer when you are forced to go on leave and actually have to make your own food etc, after being pampered in all those luxury places as part of your "work"... :mrgreen:

Bet you cannot wait to get back to work! :D:

Here are a few pics.

One thing i've learned from the travells (especially from the rural areas), is that we can be very thankfull for the basic things like a roof over our heads, running water, food, and the list goes on...

Without a doubt the best hotel of the project so far. Pretty huge contrast of what the scenes are like outside these walls...

So on a trip to Lesotho we decided to follow the GPS on a 'shorter' route to Oxbow Lodge. Little did we know that the supposed road turned out to be a donkey cart track....

Turned out to be quite a low range adventure!!

We stayed at Oxbow Lodge @ 2800m HASL and about froze to death! No snow yet but anything that resembles water is frozen solid.
