did you know…?

We finished our third day in the Caprevi Game Park today, a pan handle that joins Namibia to Zambia. The Germans bought the panhandle because they believed they could establish a transportation route between their colonies in Southwest Africa and Tanzania via the Zambezi River. Unfortunately for the first transporters they soon found out that the Victoria Falls would make this very difficult.

    Hi Rueben & Erin. I just wanted to say hi and let you know we are keeping an eye on the website for your updates. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Keep an eye out for the big horned cows! In Uganda they are everywhere, so maybe where you are also. I am letting everyone at Watoto know about your website so they can keep up to date as well.

    Take Care!
