McDonalds in Lower Zambezi!?

So it had been a sad farewell to the River Club but onward we went as we flew via Lusaka to Lower Zambezi National Park. It is a beautiful flight as you cruise low over farmland and forest before reaching the rugged Zambezi escarpment and the wilderness that lies below. I could see the Zambezi River was still very high so they must have opened up the gates at the Kariba dam, about 50 kilometres up stream. This was probably going to limit our game drives a little but on the other hand it was opening up new channels to explore by canoe and boat.
