Every journey has a beginning, and this was mine!
Taken on the first day of my huge journey along the mighty Zambezi from the rivers source in the North Western corner of Zambia, on the border of Congo and Angola!
Where originally I had a guide/translator/doctor and friend.
Dr Teddy Mulenga who had thrived in the limelight in the build up to the journey.
But after one nights camping in the African bush, and after making an early judgement about the terrain in which we we’re about to be walking in!
He decided he couldn’t go ahead with the expedition.
I was pretty gutted after 2 years of planning that it had come to this on day 1!
But I soon got my head into gear and started my journey solo and very much unsupported!
