We get to Mpika and pass through at about 13:00, got 70km to go to the turnoff to Lavushi Manda National Park. Takes about an hour as I have a little run in with the traffic cops outside of Mpika.
They make us repack the car so Monday can sit inside instead of on the back!
We hit the dirt and Monday promptly asks to stop so he can go sit at the back again!
............. however the bloody fishermen cruising around on bicycles and doing their own work doesn’t go down well on the first blown stalk, or the second.
I tell the scout that if these f***ing people run off in the direction of the lechwe next stalk, something will die, and I don’t care if it’s not a lechwe.
Scout looks at me and in a glance decides best not mess with the bwana, he is pissed off!
we hop out for another stalk a bit later on and lo and behold, more fishermen.
quick as a flash, scout is out and runs up to them and tells them just to sit down until we leave. Well, whatever he said worked… ...............
It was good meeting you too, looks like the rest of your trip was awesome.Nice report Pete. It was a pleasure to meet you at the airport the other day. I appreciated your stopping by. I know it took a bit of effort. Sounds like the meat hunting went well. Nice looking black Lechwe. Goo to see the pics. Makes me miss Zambia. Would of liked to of spent a bit more time there. I guess its something to look forward to next time. Take care. Bruce
