Thank you all for another delightful visit to South Luangwa! It's not just the animals or the views of the rivers and hills that keep taking me back to the valley. It seems to have more to do with the people. You all have made me feel so welcome and at home at the Lodge and the bushcamps. Your friendliness and willingness to share all of your knowledge of the valley and its denizens is delightful! I enjoy getting to know more about you each time I visit.
