Preparing my Safari to Zambia


Recommended Posts

Some may have wondered if I was still active on safaritalk after two intense years of daily posting largely during the pandemic and near silence in the first half of 2022 ( a necessary break ) but I can reassure them : I will be back in the next months with day by day trip reports of my planned safaris to Zambia ( North and South Luangwa & Bangweulu ) and Zimbabwe Gonarezhou) in October .


In two days I will be leaving Brussels for Lusaka with my wife Anne ( without my son Willem this time ) and on Tuesday we will hopefully be in our first stop Takwela Camp ( see my topic on North Luangwa elsewhere) .

The last few days apart from preparing of course , I have been walking like usual in and around Dilbeek and the splendid " Wolfsputten " but this time with my Sony RX 10 IV to prepare myself for the African bush and get used again to my gear , so most of the following pictures were taken there and in Anderlecht ( my favorite soccer team for those who would doubt :D) .


If this will be the start of a first big year as I vaguely promised @michael-ibk ad the end of 2021 I don't know : much will depend on the number and variety of bird sightings on my future safaris but one thing is  certain : even if I am far from an experienced birder I am becoming totally addicted to our little friends !!
