I have long wanted to visit that great wild river, The Zambezi and canoe on it like a real live explorer! It’s taken a decade or three, but six of us did it – paddling downstream and staying in tented camps in Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools wilderness. A bit scary. A bit out of the comfort zone but occasionally, life cries out to be lived in that shivery area.
Anyway, here’s an account of the experience, published as a cover story in The Sydney Morning Herald Traveller on August 3, 2013.
