We arrived at Kapishya after a gruelling few days on the road from Katavi in Tanzania and what a surprise . An Eden in Africa. Lush gardens, fantastic bird life, a riverside campsite and the beautiful natural hot springs. We basked by the pool, wallowed in the warm springs and watched the palmnut vultures at their endless task of picking at the palm nuts.
We immediately decided to stay a few nights and were made to feel at home by Mark and Mel. We had a few late nights at their cosy bar telling stories of Africa and hearing all about the fascinating history of the family. Delicious food, home grown organic produce and home raised meat.
Topped off with a visit to Shiwa N'gandu to see Sir Stuarts dream being brought back to life and to get further insights into this incomparable character.
