Visit from His Excellency President Rupiah Banda

Yesterday we were delighted to welcome His Excellency Rupiah Banda, President of Zambia for tea at Mfuwe Lodge. He and his entourage were visiting Mfuwe and the South Luangwa National Park ahead of the forthcoming Presidential Elections (being held on the 20th September). The President spent several hours chatting with managers and staff, and enjoyed tea and a sundowner on our deck, overlooking the lagoon; there was quite a bit of wildlife to be seen. Before he left, he visited our curio shop and we presented him with a copy of our new Did you Know book, a Wonky Tusk book and a copy of our School Fundraising Calendar, he also wrote in our visitors book:

"Very impressive place. Look forward to enjoying a stay here one day, God willing. God Bless Zambia" - His Excellency Rupiah Banda, President of Zambia
