Hi everyone,

We know, we know, we've been terrible correspondents recently.  Let's just say it's been a minor internet conspiracy - hate to make excuses, but there you go... 
We're now in Lusaka, having spent some adventurous days driving through Zambia (it's the rainy season after all!) and are looking forward to visiting Kafue National Park tomorrow.
Hope you're still with us, we've managed to upload some photos, and have bulk-uploaded the last few country's diary. Please forgive us for not having "back-to-tops" but it's taken us seven hours as it is, and we've had enough!


Hi All

Hope all is well with friends and family and that none have been negatively affected by the snows in the UK?

Well, it's been a while since our last update.  We took the decision to relax from life on the road, and the diary for a few days, and pushed through Tanzania to the Indian Ocean coast - skipping the parks altogether.  At Peponi beach (near Pangani) we spent a few days lazing around.  Also met up with another SA couple and shared a local motorised dhow across to Zanzibar yesterday.  We'll spend a few more days exploring before returning to Mapenzi and the drive south.

We've had a few requests to include more photos of ourselves on flickr.  We've been trying to upload only the ones we're really proud of, but if it's us you want, we'll try and deliver! I'll be practising 'blue steel'...

Looking forward to hearing your news

Love from

Michael & Sarah
