Justin Brinkhoff on ‘The Experience’

Meet Justin Brinkhoff (above) from Denver, Colorado. Colorado was a ‘swing state’ in the recent US election and also one of the states that legalized the social smoking of marijuana in a vote at the same time. “What did you think of the election?” we asked Justin when he appeared as a Guest on the most recent edition of The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela. (That’s our regular Sunday night radio show on local radio in Livingstone). “We were happy Obama won” replied Justin “and the vote on marijuana was somehow a natural progression, as the drug was already allowed in Colorado for medical purposes, we’re not yet sure how the law will be implemented.”

Justin told listeners that he worked for Visa, the credit card company, but revealed that the company did not give him an unlimited free credit card with which to go on holiday (surprise, surprise!) He’s a computer programmer and he revealed that he was in Zambia with his wife Rebekah who was resting back at Chanters Lodge where they were staying. Before coming to Livingstone they had spent a fantastic week in the South Luangwa National Park, staying at Flatdogs. During their safaris they had seen four of the ‘big five’. They had not seen rhino but had made up for this by taking the rhino walk with Bwaato Adventures in Livingstone the previous day, they had seen all nine rhino in the Mosi-o-Tunya NP and had been thrilled! The day of the show, Justin and Rebekah had taken the one day safari to Chobe NP in Botswana and had seen an amazing number of elephant and crocodile – as you usually do in Chobe.

Milli Jam wanted to know Justin’s musical tastes and he revealed that he’s still very much into 80’s rock, loving bands like Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Guns and Roses and AC/DC. On this show we featured tracks by Bruno Mars, Example, Exile and Nalu, Mr Vezzy, Rihanna ft Chris Brown and Alicia Keys. Our oldie of the week was by Zambian artists Amayange and the prize for guessing the artists on the track – ‘Dyress’ was quickly snapped up by text, and once again we had a great response. My pick of the week was Tulisa’s ‘Live Your Life’ and we closed with Carrie Underwood’s ‘Two Black Cadillacs’ – after a little presenter confusion!

Justin revealed that when he and Rebekah, a project engineer in a construction company back in America, had been in the Luangwa Valley they had spent one day volunteering in one of the local schools in Mfue and they had loved the experience, relating well to the children who had sung and danced for them! It was their first time to come to Africa. They hoped to spend some time in Zimbabwe and South Africa after leaving Zambia. Justin revealed that they had first met on a blind date organized by his brother in law and that he and Rebekah had been married for two years.

Asked where he would like to be and what he would like to be doing in ten years’ time Justin replied that he and Rebekah would like to be travelling full time with their children! “Get in” we said!


Brian Suto & Jen Gase rock ‘The Experience’!

What do the average Washington DC investment adviser (with Charles Schwab ) and partner, an IT project manager, do on their Sunday night in Livingstone, Zambia just 10 kms away from the mighty Victoria Falls? Why, appear on the Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela of course! That’s our regular Sunday night radio show airing weekly between 20.30 and 21.30 hrs on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. Joking apart we were delighted that Brian Suto and Jen Gase (pictured above), our Guests at Chanters Lodge, agreed to appear on our show. Lively and interesting Guests they were too.

Brian and Jen told listeners that although they’d only arrived in Livingstone at lunch time the previous day, on their first afternoon they’d already taken the sunset cruise on the Zambezi on Lady Livingstone which they’d thoroughly enjoyed. On the morning of the show they’d been to Mukuni Big 5 for the lion encounter and then walked out to Livingstone Island to swim in Devil’s Pool, which they described as ‘stunning’. The following day they were scheduled for a half day’s white water rafting before they left Chanters for the Zambezi Waterfront to link up with G Adventures. They explained that they were booked for an eight day camping overland trip with Gap, taking them from Zimbabwe to Johannesburg via Kruger NP. “Looking forward to it?” George, the host for the day, wanted to know. “We are” replied Brian “but I’m not too sure about the camping.” Jen gave a knowing laugh. “Washington investment adviser camping?” She seemed to be thinking, sure……

George wanted to know if the couple lived near the White House and our Guests said that they lived just 10kms away. Had they met President Obama? We wanted to know, they had not, but they hoped to and were delighted he had won the election. So were we. Music wise Brian told listeners he was into rap, whereas Jen liked softer music such as Mumford and Sons. On this show we featured tracks from The Wanted as well as Christina Aguilera at the top of the show. Zambian tracks were from T-Sean and Zone Fam, which we followed up with offerings from Lana del Rey and Keri Hilson. Our oldie of the week was Danny’s ‘Could I Be’ and we had a great response from listeners by text telling us who was singing the track – all trying to win dinner for two at the lodge. Vuuka won.

Asked where they’d met, Brian and Jen said it had been in Florida where they’d been working for the same company. “Was it love at first sight?” George wanted to know “not really” seemed to be the reply. They told listeners they’d been married for two years. Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing 10 years from now, Jen said she wanted still to have Brian by her side along with 2+ children, Brian seemed to want to be running a small lodge somewhere other than in America – as you do when you’re an investment adviser!!


Greg and Melinda Homan

Meet Greg and Melinda Homan, all the way from Santa Fe in New Mexico, USA but passionate about Africa! Greg and Melinda were staying at Chanters Lodge in Livingstone for a few days, so we seized the chance to invite them on to our Sunday night radio show – The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela, airing every Sunday night from 20.30 to 21.30 hrs on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station.

Passionate about Africa? Well yes, this is their third trip to the continent and on previous visits they climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and went to view the mountain gorillas in Rwanda – gotta be passionate to do those things. On this trip they were visiting Victoria Falls at the start of their holiday and the day after the show they were due to leave for a week in Botswana and then a two week stay in Namibia. While in Livingstone they’d seen the Falls from both sides and had swum in Devil’s Pool on Livingstone Island – “not bad for someone who doesn’t like heights or water!” Commented Melinda.

Greg told listeners that he was a carpenter by trade, making furniture and kitchen cabinets, as well as Spanish guitars (as a hobby). “Send us a guitar!” Demanded George and Milli Jam. “I’ll do that!” Said Greg. “Do you play the guitar yourself?” Asked Milli Jam, and Greg replied that he did and that when he was younger he had played in various rock bands. These days music wise he and Melinda like the Who, Steely Dan and Pink Floyd as well as country, jazz and classical music. On the sports front Greg told listeners that he’s a fan of the Washington Redskins. Melinda revealed that she and Greg had been married for 33 years although when Milli Jam originally asked her how long they’d been married, her reply was “forever”! Greg winced!

We featured tracks from Olly Murs, Brandy and Nicki Minaj at the top of the show. George came up with two latest, hot Zambian tracks ‘Chipangano’ by Batu featuring Tok Cido and Jemah, back to back with Mr Vezzy’s latest smash ‘Wemutima’ (my heart has a lot of desires but it leads me into trouble). Milli Jam chose Flo Rida’s ‘Whistle’ and Ne-Yo ft Wiz Khalifa with ‘Make ‘Em Like You’. George did not make the listeners like him when he dropped Madonna’s ‘Take A Bow’ as our oldie of the week – no-one guessed the performing artist and to me the choice was rather obscure. “We’ll make it easier next week!” I promised the listeners.

Melinda told our audience that she worked full time as a nanny for a family with three children which she enjoyed, and explained that she and Greg had two children of their own, both grown up and in college at the University of New Mexico, their son studying anthropology, their daughter nursing. “How did you two meet?” Milli Jam asked “and was it love at first sight?” “It was beer at first sight” quipped Melinda, we met in a bar and he got more attractive as the night progressed and more beer was consumed! We laughed.

Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing ten years’ from now this engaging, charming American couple they said they hoped to be retired grandparents, still travelling, and running their own shop selling Homan guitars!

We wished them the best of luck!


Hunting and things…

This piece from Times Of Zambia caught my eye. Why? Well someone on Facebook had posted a status indicating that this meeting held at Sandy’s Creations in Lusaka was a very lively affair (not his exact words!) Let’s hope there’s action on not just words!

Tourism and Arts Minister Sylvia Masebo (above) has directed the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) to immediately open up a separate account for the Community Resource Boards (CRBs) where safari hunting operators will be depositing 50 per cent of the money for hunting in Game Management Areas (GMAs). And Ms Masebo has assured the CRBs that her ministry will ensure that they are paid the more than K1 billion ZAWA owes them.

Ms Masebo’s directive signifies that all the hunting proceeds from outfitters (safari hunting companies) will not be placed in one account, as has been the case. The Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) Act No. 12 of 1998 identifies CRBs as partners with ZAWA in wildlife conservation and that they should equally share the hunting licence proceeds. Ms Masebo’s instruction was arrived at following submissions made by various stakeholders in six groups, among them traditional leaders, who are the custodians of the GMA land, who proposed that safari outfitters should pay money directly to them and not through ZAWA.

“On the payment mode, we shall continue with the status quo (50-50 per cent), but will not go with business, as usual. ZAWA will open a separate account for the CRBs, but it will not have access to the account. That, we shall do with immediate effect,” she said. Ms Masebo observed that although there was a Statutory Instrument (SI) currently in place on the safari outfitters depositing the hunting proceeds in one account, Ms Masebo said that could be changed even “within seven days”.

The concession lease agreement period proved to be a contentious issue, prompting Ms Masebo to call for a voting process, resulting in those in support of the agreement going up to 10 years winning the process as they polled 77 votes, while those for five years, which included more than 15 chiefs present, got 66 votes.

The outcome prompted an unidentified chief to rise and ask Ms Masebo to issue a ministerial statement to resolve the matter, arguing that traditional leaders were owners of the land and thus should decide the duration of the lease agreement.

Ms Masebo in response said on such issues, Government was guided by the people, which was the case during the stakeholders’ meeting, adding that a consensus was a way of proceeding on the matter and assured the traditional leader that she would later offer her guidance on the matter.

Ms Masebo also warned of termination of lease agreements for those operators whose activities were found not to be benefitting the communities they operated in following an assessment process by the chiefs, CRBs and ZAWA after three years.


Aussie Rules!

 Meet Jeremy Ng and Jo Peti, Guests on the most recent edition of the Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela. ‘The Experience’ is our regular Sunday night radio show airing between 20.30 and 21.30 hrs every Sunday night on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. Jeremy and Jo are from Melbourne in South Australia although Jo is originally from New Zealand – “from Matamata” she told listeners proudly, “where Lord Of The Rings was filmed.” This engaging couple explained that they’d been married for 8 years. “Was it love at first sight”? Milli Jam wondered. They both exploded with laughter as Jo declared that the second time they’d met, Jeremy couldn’t even remember her from the first time!
Jeremy told listeners that he owns and operates his own drilling company in Australia, mostly drilling environmental boreholes, explaining that these were done in order to take core samples for inspectors to check for contamination. Jo is a project manager for an IT company and spends a lot of time away from home, as her job takes her all over Australia. Before Jeremy and Jo arrived in Livingstone they’d spent two weeks in South Africa as volunteers on a wild life farm, mostly taking care of lion cubs and they had loved it. So much so that Jo said she would love to work full time with animals in the future. They told listeners it was their first trip to Africa.
The music on the show was international, we opened with Sam And The Womp’s UK smash ‘Bom Bom’ – quite why this is such a hit I, for one, am not sure! We coupled Bom Bom with Devlin featuring Ed Sheeran and ‘Watchtower’ which samples Jimi Hendrix’s 70’s hit. George chose his own track ‘Good Times’ with Roberto at the request of our Guests, back to back with B1’s ‘Secret Ku Bed’ – “what happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom”, he explained. “Not in Prince Harry’s case” I opined, which raised a laugh. Milli Jam dropped two Nigerian tracks before our oldie of the week – Exile’s ‘Oxygen’ – the prize we give every week to the first listener to text us telling us the name of the performing artist was quickly snapped up! We closed with new tracks from Ciara and Simple Plan.
Our Aussie couple told listeners that they’d had a great time since they’d been in Livingstone, the highlight of which had been a jump into the Devil’s Pool on Livingstone Island. They’d taken a one day safari to Chobe in Botswana, which they’d thoroughly enjoyed especially seeing so many elephants of different ages. Jeremy had taken a microlight flight over the Falls and they’d both loved the Zambezi sunset cruise on the Lady Livingstone. Asked why they’d chosen Chanters Lodge they replied that it suited their budget, seemed secure and that they’d got a fast and thorough reply to their first enquiry by e mail. Were they happy with their choice? They were and said the staff were great.
Sports wise Jo and Jeremy are into rugby – one supports Australia, the other New Zealand. Just imagine the scene! Jo said her musical tastes were mostly hip hop and r & b though she loves Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj. Jeremy favoured old school rock including Midnight Oil.  Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing ten years from now, Jeremy said he hoped by that time he would have increased the number of drilling rigs in his company, whilst Jo said she would love to be working 100% of her time with animals and still travelling.

We wished them the best of luck!



Do Giraffe Mourn Their Dead?

This piece by Nick Collins in the Daily Telegraph caught my eye, following a report that a giraffe in Luangwa Valley had been mourning its dead calf. This fine creature was photographed in the Chobe National Park, Botswana.

“According to zoologist Prof Fred Bercovitch, the mother spent two hours with her calf after it died, splaying her legs to bend down next to it and lick it in an extremely unusual display of behaviour. The incident, witnessed by Prof Bercovitch at the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, is only the third case on record of a giraffe mother stoically remaining with their dead calf.

It raises the question of whether giraffes, along with animals such as chimpanzees and elephants which are well known for investigating the bodies of dead relatives, may have a deeper understanding of death than previously thought. Writing in the African Journal of Ecology, Prof Bercovitch, a researcher with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation in Surrey, described how the mother had splayed her legs apart in order to bend down over her dead newborn.

She then licked the calf for several minutes before standing upright, and repeated the entire act a number of times over a period of more than two hours, during which she was alone. The behaviour was unusual because giraffes rarely bend so low other than to feed or drink, and females spend very little time away from their herd, BBC Nature reported.

The mother’s reaction to the calf’s death was less prolonged than that seen in African elephants and less overt than chimpanzees, which have even been seen carrying their dead young with them.

But it is one of three examples of apparent “mourning” by giraffe mothers, with the mother in one case remaining beside her calf for four days after its death.

Although it is not clear from such behaviour that animals understand death, the latest evidence at least shows that female giraffes have a more complex bond with their young than previously thought, Prof Bercovitch said.

By examining whether a wider range of species show a similar reaction when members of their family or kind die, it could be possible in future to answer the question of whether animals really do mourn, he added.


Whitney & Dave DeCamp

Meet Whitney and David DeCamp (above) from the USA. Whitney is a strategic planning analyst with the American Red Cross and Dave is a business system manager with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation, both based in Washington DC. Dave’s job involves the implementation of the Smartcare programme in conjunction with the Centre for Disease Control.

Whitney and Dave met about 11 years ago and in 2005 got married. They have recently been enjoying a short vacation at Chanters Lodge in Livingstone, so we took the opportunity to invite them to guest on our regular Sunday night radio show – The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela – airing live at 20.30 hrs on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. On this occasion the ‘Milli Jam Ingredient’ was not feeling well so it was the ‘Kaufela Ingredient’ featuring Richard! Whitney and Dave were a little apprehensive but in the end happy to accept our invitation and they were great Guests!

“What have you been doing since you arrived in Livingstone?” George wondered early on in the set. Whitney and Dave explained that they had only arrived from Lusaka the day before, but had already managed to fit in a sunset cruise on Lady Livingstone, which they had loved, especially as they saw quite a lot of game during the trip. They had, they explained, that very morning been on the rhino walk with Bwaato Adventures, and considered the activity to be really good value for money. They had seen six rhino, including one of the babies as well as loads of other game, including cape buffalo, giraffe and zebra. Dave told listeners that he’d been attending a conference in Lusaka before they arrived in Livingstone, Whitney had, on this occasion, been able to join him for a holiday and had persuaded him to come and see Victoria Falls and he was delighted she had. They had seen the Falls and got soaking wet in the process! “All part of the fun!” They said.

The music on the show was good. We played tracks by Jeremy Greene featuring Usher as well as from Miley Cyrus, Roberto and Kaufela, moving on to Pitbull featuring Shakira – or was it the other way round? Newton Faulkner featured too. Our oldie of the week was by Shabba Ranks. We give away a dinner for two to the first person to text us telling us who’s the artist on our weekly oldie and this week a certain Albert win the prize. Our pick of the week was Call My Name – Florence and The Machine’s first every UK number one, featuring Calvin Harris and we closed with Taio Cruz’a latest ‘Fast Car’.

Dave told listeners that he loves country music and baseball, while Whitney likes alternative rock and American football. Their favourite teams are both from Baltimore. Asked how they had found out about Chanters Lodge Whitney explained that they had found the lodge well reviewed on TripAdvisor and that they were more than happy that they had made the lodge their choice.

Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing in ten years’ time, this lively and loving couple expressed an interest in coming back to live in Zambia with their, as yet, unborn children. We wondered if it was hard for Whitney with Dave travelling so much in his job, but they explained that the internet, Skype and things made it much easier than it used to be! Were the guys on Facebook or Twitter? Yes both, but Dave claimed he had no followers on Twitter! We determined to do something about that!


Perth People!

Meet Judy Smetherham and Di Rapson (standing at the back, left to right in the picture) and Di’s daughter Calli (sitting left) with friend Kristen ‘Kettle’ Lane plus a whole herd of elephants, as they appeared on last week’s edition of The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient, featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. ‘The Experience’ is our regular Sunday night radio show. Actually for the second week running the show featured me, as George was off sick following Milli Jam’s absence on business last week. It was Judy and Di’s third appearance on our show as they are regular visitors to Livingstone, but for Calli and Kettle it was a first. “Why Kettle?” We wondered. “She’s boiling hot” was her friend’s swift reply! Later in the show, when the girls were asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing in ten years’ time, “Kettle” replied “baby making”. Hot indeed! Calli wanted to be rich. Girls!

The group are ‘Perth People’ from Western Australia. Calli told listeners that she worked in a call centre for Crown Casino in Perth taking reservations for their hotels Crown Metropole and Crown Promenade. Did she like the job? Not really! Kristen is the manager of a fast food chicken outlet. Music wise the girls said they were into Glee, Disney, Spice Girls, Aqua and Backstreet Boys. “Oldies!” Said Milli Jam perking up interest “just what I like”! The girls said they also liked Flo Rida and Usher, but the latter only when he had his shirt off. “Have you seen his chest?” They asked. “He’s got more ripples than a washboard!” I don’t think we had seen the chest in question, but we got the idea!
We opened the music on the show with Will.i.am’s latest UK number one ‘This Is Love’ featuring Eva Simons, back to back with Chris Brown’s international smash ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’. Milli Jam featured local hits from Slap Dee and Judy (appropriately), as well as international tracks from T-Pain ‘5 O’Clock’ and Nicki Minaj with Chris Brown – ‘Right By My Side’. Our oldie of the week was Gnarls Barclay’s ‘Crazy’ – no-one could text us the right name of the artist on the track so no-one won the dinner for two at Chanters Lodge that we give away on each show. Our pick of the week was Jennnifer Lopez and Pitbull with ‘Sweet Spot’ and we closed with Jordin Sparks latest ‘I’m Out Tonight’.
Judy and Di were in front of the mikes for a short time telling listeners about their jobs back at a primary school in Perth. Judy has been busy with pre-school children while Di helps with children having learning difficulties. Their children love the elephants that these ladies move with, shown in the picture. The group told listeners about their one day safari to Chobe National Park in Botswana, their microlight flight over Victoria Falls. Kristen had done the bridge swing and Judy the ‘Flying Fox’. Crazy indeed! They had toured the local markets scouring for chitenge material and souvenirs and were much looking forward to seeing the lunar rainbow on the following Tuesday as well as riding the jet boat in the gorges below the Falls.

Great people, great show!


Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp

I recently met Steve Smith from Nanzhila Plains Camp in Kafue National Park and his place looks fabulous!

Kafue National Park – Zambia
Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp

Sensitive to communities – owner Steve Smith believe the future of our wildlife and safari industry is dependant on attitudes of local communities – if there is no direct benefit accruing to local people from wildlife, there is no reason for them to tolerate or maintain it. He says:

“Community based natural resource management is all important – and is a key component of our development – staff are recruited from neighbouring villages and areas taking into account their traditional knowledge of the area; building materials were obtained as far as possible from local sources recognising sustainable and traditional usages, and community based programmes are being created to reduce poverty and increase environmental awareness.

At Nanzhila Plains Camp, we offer remote Africa in its true unrefined beauty. Vast and spacious, you will never see another vehicle on a game drive because our nearest neighbours are three hours away. This offers our guests a unique African experience off the beaten path.”

The Kafue Trust is a registered charity which provides support for the Kafue National Park, and the surrounding communities. Its mission is to utilize professional and financial resources for park management, wildlife research, training for natural resource conservation and development of sustainable livelihood enterprises. Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp actively supports the Kafue Trust, being the base for the Trusts operations in the southern Kafue National Park. The owner manager, Steve Smith, is also a trustee of the Kafue Trust.

The Calgary Crowd on Zambezi 107.7 fm

Actually this wasn’t the whole ‘Calgary Crowd’ who’d been staying at Chanters Lodge, Livingstone, Zambia, there were a couple more back at the lodge! They are big people and it’s quite a small studio! Meet (left to right) Julie and Dallas Mauck with Hobie Schmautz. All hail from Alberta, Canada and were visiting Zambia – and for that matter Africa – for the first time. They were a little hesitant about appearing on our regular Sunday evening radio show on Zambezi 107.7 fm – The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient, featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela – but I twisted their arms and I believe they enjoyed ‘The Experience’ – though it was, perhaps, one of the last things they expected to do while they were visiting Livingstone and Victoria Falls!

During their visit to Zambia, apart from appearing on the radio, Julie and Dallas, married for 20 years this year and celebrating the anniversary with their stunning trip to Africa, as well as Hobie and the rest of the crowd, had taken a 30 minute helicopter flight over the Falls which they described as ‘amazing’. On their second day they’d rafted the famous Zambezi white water rapids – numbers 14-25 which are those open while there’s ‘high water’ – as it is at the moment. I asked Hobie on air if he’d enjoyed the ride and he said ‘well, yes, I did seeing I can’t swim’! The group had also ‘zip lined’ from the famous railway bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe but had, apparently, drawn the line at bungee jumping!
The music on the show was good, we dropped Cheryl Cole’s UK number one hit ‘Call My Name’ back to back with Flo Rida’s ‘Whistle’ at the top of the show. For the Zambian part of our play list we chose Dandy Krazy’s ‘Dangana Nkupule’ as well as B’Flow’s ‘Efyo Waba featuring P-Jay. Jennifer Hudson’s ‘Spotlight’ was our ‘oldie of the week’ – listeners have to text us telling us who’s singing the track if they want to win a dinner for two with drinks at Chanters Lodge – they do and they did, so the prize was quickly won. Milli Jam featured Camp Mulla’s ‘Party Don’t Stop’ – they’re a Kenyan outfit – and for our Canadian Guests we played ‘As Long As You Love Me’ Justin Bieber’s dubstep smash, featuring Big Sean.

Julie and Dallas told listeners that they run their own business back in Calgary – it’s a quick service garage that offers complete oil and filter changes in 20 minutes for US$60. We believed them!! And so too did we believe that you can get used to -45C degree temperatures though I’m not sure I’d want to! The group also told us they’d had a great time in South Africa on safari for almost three weeks before they arrived in Zambia, and that they would be headed back for Canada the day after the show. Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing in ten years’ time Julie said she and Dallas would like still to be healthy, wealthy and travelling! Hobie was ‘hoping for the best’.

Great show!
