With Kevin and I in Lockdown in the UK we have been speaking to Nicholas over in Mfuwe to get the planning for our construction underway.
Many of the lodges in the area have closed their door and laid off their staff but we wanted to keep our team on board, to look after the camp in our absence so that as soon as we can re-open, we are in a position to do so.
We have started to procure the building materials needed for the dining area and additional cottages.
Sand is being collected from the river to allow concrete blocks to be pressed on site and planks and poles are being delivered.
Its hard watching this all going on from so far away but we hope to be able to get out to South Luangwa ourselves as soon as flights resume and quarantine restrictions are lifted in Zambia.
In the meantime we are exploring marketing opportunities to give us the best start for the 2021 season.
