On Safari

Last year during our holiday in Africa we stayed at Sussi and Chuma Lodage in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia.

As well as doing a boat ride down the Zambezi River we visited Victoria Falls and went on several safari drives. On the most memorable safari drive we visited a group of white rhinos that were under 24 hour armed protection.

On our last safari drive in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park we saw a few zebras, some other wildlife and lovely vistas of the Zambezi River. I got most excited with what we found in a clearing in the park. It was a sign from Northern Rhodesian times that declared the area as a National Monument.


This genealogist did not expect to find a cemetery in the middle of a National Park on Zambia! You can read about the Old Drift Cemetery here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Drift_cemetery This site gives details of the persons buried at the cemetery https://www.graves-at-eggsa.org/main.php?g2_itemId=3347256 .

You can read the story of The Old Drift settlement here  https://www.tothevictoriafalls.com/vfpages/devel/settlers.html.



Our guide was bemused when I asked him to stop so that we could take some photos of the site. Fellow genies will know why I needed to stop. Thankfully this wasn't an area frequented by big cats.
