Evening, South Luangwa NP, Zambia

Evening, South Luangwa NP
Zambia's South Luangwa National Park remains one of Africa's best affordable wildlife viewing places. The guides have an excellent reputation, and if Akim, our guide, was typical, the reputation's very well deserved. We waited on this low hill for the sun to go down so we could begin our night drive; the park stretched out to the horizon, an immense area where the wildlife — for the moment — has priority.

It's a shame really that the internet can only delight our eyes (and sometimes our ears), because this scene makes me wish I could sniff the air.

Robin, I'd love to be back there, smelling that dry grass, listening to the sounds, wondering what we might see. (That reminds me — I must get round to finishing posting about the rest of the journey. Plenty to cover...)
