A short one this week …

Zambia had lots of rain during the past two weeks. Above is the bridge on the Kasama-Mpulungu Road. This is a main highway, so I hope it is fixed by now …
In Zimbabwe, Bhejane Trust has reported finding some poached elephant tusks.
In Botswana there are some great photos of a hippo guarding his territory against some lions
And, finally, in Namibia, more penguins have died from the virus devastating the population on Halifax Island

The saddest news this week is the death of Ben Parker of Tongabezi. The whole community is still in shock at the loss of one of its best-known lodge-owners who came to Livingstone when tourism was in its infancy. Tongabezi Lodge is now recognised as one of the best lodges in the whole of Africa.

Other news includes a new luxury hotel in Victoria Falls Town, a melanistic zebra in the Okavango and penguins dying on Halifax Island off Namibia. Some excellent photographs too – a crocodile taking a baboon in Mana Pools, a crested turaco and one snake eating another!
