If the average person was asked about the , how many
would actually have anything to say? From all the places I have been in the
world, the stands out most in my mind. The mighty Zambezi River
forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia as they lie on the maps in our
libraries. Few people have been graced the opportunity to be in the presence of

pleasure for a new day has come. This will be a day where the fight for survival
takes over like an uncontrollable urge, nevertheless, little is known as to who
should be feared. Should it be the predators lurking around, wanting to fill
their own stomachs, or will it be the natives searching for food in the land on
