DAY 4 & 5 Lower Zambezi Valley •
Spend the next 2 nights in this fascinating Valley it will not only
enthrall you with its game viewing, but also astound you with its
wealth of discoveries. Buried in the deep in windblown sands of the
Great Triassic Desert, which covered part of this area more than 200
million years ago, are the remains of dinosaurs. Fossilized skeletons,
sets of dinosaur tracks trapped in time for hundreds of millions of
years are but few of the new discoveries made in this area.
Few people now live in the Zambezi Valley and the ancestral spirits of
Tonga have been ritually moved with their tribe, to new homes beyond
the waterline. In Tonga belief, the teeth have an unhealthy habit of
leaving the mouth at night during sleep, and because of their
unpleasant nocturnal activities, cause stains and bad breath. Thus, by
removing these teeth they are able to stop the nightly excursions and
thereby also resemble their cattle, which they so greatly admire.
Possibly the most fascinating account being the rumours repeated by
early 20th Century hunters from the valley who spoke of invisible
people who ran like the wind and could climb trees like monkeys. Their
distinctive spoor revealing footprints similar to that of the ostrich,
hence they became known as the Ostrich People. These few individuals
do not form a whole tribe but belong to the Vadoma people who carry a
genetic deformity. With a tendency to have an extra or joined fingers
and feet which are often split lengthways forming only two large toes.
The tribe settled in the Valley from the east centuries ago. Their
leader decreed that they could not marry outside the group and so the
genes for this defect were retained within this small group of people.
Fondly dubbed Catland, for its not uncommon to see a pride of lions on
a kill or a leopard stalking through the bush, the valley comes alive
as darkness descends, nocturnal creatures such as civet, porcupine and
genet cautiously exploring the night's offerings.
Enjoy a breakfast a la Zambezi, served aboard their River Cruiser,
this intimate meal epitomizes the personal attention the staff at the
Camp lavish on their guests.
This morning you will be transferred back to Victoria Falls Airport
