May 2009 Travel Zambia 11 View from abroad Jagdish Nayee - Jag, to friends and family - was born in Ndola but raised and educated in England after moving there as a child. Today he works in IT at Gatwick Airport for The Mileage Company, a subsidiary of British Airways. Jag is married to Trusha, who hails from Zimbabwe, with whom he has two young children. He talked to Mike Unwin about his Zambian connections. FAMILY TIES Sad news from Chipembele Wildlife Orphanage in South Luangwa, reports Anna Tolan: Bulu the ' Wonder Dog', so- called after he survived a vicious lion attack, has passed away after a long illness. Bulu had a truly adventurous life: not only did he cheat death on numerous occasions; he was also a wonderful ' mother' to the many orphaned creatures that were raised at Chipembele. He would even chase lions and elephants away from the house, adamant that it was his territory and not theirs. Bulu's gentle spirit and miraculous survival abilities touched the lives of many people and made him a local legend. He will not be forgotten. WONDER DOG BARKS HIS LAST How often do you go back to Zambia? I arrived in England on a snowy December morning in 1976 and it was 20 years before I returned to Zambia. After that it became a regular occurrence, going back once every two years at least. Usually we take a three- week trip and divide our time between various members of our family. What do you do when you're there? We enjoy meeting family. Zambia, with its natural beauty, lets you unwind like nowhere else. I just love standing around, whether in the local market or at the dam, and soaking it all up. There are great places to eat and drink and, being from the Copperbelt, I always enjoy seeing the mines at night. Recently we were able to spend a few days at Victoria Falls and watch the sunset. Awesome! How is life in the UK different from life in Zambia? This might sound strange, but you get more out of your 24 hours in Zambia. In England, with our busy lifestyles, time is always too short. Zambia slows you down, with its wide- open spaces and natural beauty. Even after a busy day there is always time to relax with a cold bottle of mosi - or two, if you know me well. What do you most miss about home? Forgive me for stating the obvious, but it's the sunshine: that great feeling it gives you every morning. Also the fantastic sky at night. The Zambian way of life allows you to burn the candle at both ends. If you could show an English visitor one thing in Zambia, what would it be? It's a tough call. Victoria Falls is truly magical, whether you are bungee jumping, white- water rafting or just getting soaked in the spray and marvelling at nature's work. Yet you can't say you have been to Zambia unless you encounter wild animals living as nature intended in the Luangwa Valley. Any visitor really needs to experience both these great destinations.
