Grant and Johnny in Zambia December 2006 to June 2007


We're back!!


Having spent 3 months in Zambia last year Johnny and Grant have decided to come back again.  Johnny didn't really get his teeth into the politics and personnel of the Clinic, and Grant wants to try to get some improvements done on the Clinic roof, wiring system and plumbing.  So we're back for 6 months this time.

We are staying at Flatdogs Camp near the entrance to the Park until mid January 2007, and we will then move to Kapani  for two months and then back to Flatdogs on 15 March.  We leave Zambia on 19 June and are back in Edinburgh in the afternoon of the 20th.

  This year we have found that we are kept incredibly busy with work on the clinic, sponsorship, and the amazingly hectic pace of day-to-day living out here.  Nonetheless we hope to keep this site up-dated with photographs of the people we've met, the animals we've seen, and our impressions of life out here.  Bookmark this page or add it to your favourite pages if you want to keep up-to-date with our activities.
