In the mid nineties we fell in love with Africa. We traveled first to Zimbabwe where we made a canoe safari on the Zambia border. Canoeing on the Upper Zambezi River is a fantastic experience. The river above the Falls has a beauty of its own. It does not have the panoramas of the Lower Zambezi but it boasts a more varied fauna and flora with picturesque islands, narrow channels and a few white water rapids. The next trip was a big trip through Namibia. Namibia is a country of compelling beauty, abundant sunshine, and a feeling of unconfined space. We traveled from Windhoek, Fish River canyon, Namib Desert, along the Skeleton Coast to the Kunene river on the Angolese border, then on to the Caprivi Strip. We spent some great days in the Kaudom game reserve, a rugged, remote part of Namibia, along the Botswana border. We saw antelope, kudu, eland, lion, lots of elephant and the biggest reward of all a pack of wild dogs.
