Local boy, South Luangwa NP


The only other people on my visit to South Luangwa National Park in May 2007 were a wonderful Glaswegian couple who arrived with a collection of Scottish football club jerseys for the local kids. Akim, our guide, took us to the village, where Jack and Annie distributed the jerseys. The kids were surprisingly shy at first — perhaps, like this little guy, not sure why they’d got so lucky — but it wasn’t long before the shy smiles, then great grins and laughter, appeared.
