Lake Kariba is like an inland sea in a landlocked country. It was created by damming the mighty Zambezi and Nyaminyami - the River God - was most displeased at the harnessing of his powers. Legend has it that Nyaminyami was responsible for the devastating once-in-a-thousand-year flood in 1958, during the building of the massive Kariba dam. Many workers lost their lives but more than 45 years on, the new eco-system provides life in many forms and gives villagers and their livestock constant access to water.

Namibia is a land of great contrasts and Damaraland demonstrates this with stark plains, petrified forests and ancient valleys leading to rocky outcrops and the soaring peaks of the Brandberg Massive Mountains.

In the centre of Kenya only 10 miles south of the equator is a snow-capped mountain. This seems so unlikely that the German missionary to report this in 1833 was laughed at. Its existence was not acknowledged for another sixteen years and it then took a further fifty years before anyone climbed to the 16,900 feet (5,199 meter) summit.
