Unfortunately there was quite a lot of rain while we were at the lodge looking for butterflies and this affected the species count as they don’t like to fly in the wet weather.
However, there were a few good days and Gorgeous Man spent some time with his net and traps.
Trap sewn by yours truly in the wee hours of the morning the day before the sewing machine was packed on a shipping container.
Gorgeous Girl and I found some other things to do.
Cooling off under the sprinkler and meeting some of the local wildlife up close.
This millipede was as big as my foot (US size 7). It was a big sucker.
One of the lovely things about this lodge was the bathroom attached to our room. It was open to the elements.
After a few days at the lodge it was time to move on. We headed back onto the dirt road that paralleled the Zambezi River.
The day started out clear, but in the afternoon when we were on the paved road heading towards Livingstone a rainstorm hit.
This was the view out of the front windscreen of the car.
There was a bus about 10 metres in front of our car. As the road’s shoulder is very narrow it was not safe to pull over – visibility was so poor that we would have been at greater risk of being hit by an vehicle, so we put on our hazard lights and slowed down. The rain was only this heavy for a short time, but it was interesting for a while.
