This spacious tented camp overlooks an expansive plain with a year- round natural spring; to its left is a sweeping view of the Kapamba River. Each ensuite tent has its own large private verandah, perfect for viewing the abundant game that gathers at the spring. Safari activities are conducted on foot in order to preserve the integrity of this unspoilt section of wilderness. Meanwhile the nearby Chindeni Bushcamp opened in August after a recent refurbishment. Details at www. bushcampcompany. com A HELPING HAND SAFARI Raising the roooof for orphphansns Orphans in Zambia are traditionally supported by the extended family network. However, the sheer number of orphans left by the HIV pandemic is making this increasingly difficult. A group of respected women from the Mfuwe community founded the Hanada Orphanage charity to address this problem. They have now received some much needed help from Shenton Safaris ( www. shentonsafaris. com). Liuwuwa spspecial from RPS Robin Pope Safaris have added Liuwa Plain to their collection of special interest safaris. This is a rare opportunity to explore the vast, open horizons of one of Zambia's most remote wildernesses. Expect unusual wildlife, huge skies and a fantastic variety of birds. Other special interest safaris on offer between December 2008 and June 2009 include Yoga Retreat ( combining Luangwa and Pumulani Resort on Lake Malawi); Wild Dog Week ( in cooperation with African Wild Dog Conservation); Shoebill Safari ( exploring Bangweulu wetlands); Digital Photographic Workshop ( with leading wildlife photographer David Rogers) and Kasanka Bat Safari ( November only). Details, dates and availability at www. robinpopesafaris. net DID YOU KNOW? Zambia shares its borders with eight other countries. These are Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Hanada Orphanage has received welcome support from various NGOs in the form of seeds, fertiliser, clothes, food and books, but this support does not extend to accommodation. The charity supports over 300 children through the extended family network, but a further 70 children also require housing. In 2007, following a request from founding member Mrs Hampondo, Derek and Jules Shenton of Shenton Safaris agreed to build a centre for the orphanage. At first the plans comprised an office, a large kitchen, a meeting chitenge and a storeroom. But they have since extended to include accommodation for the children. Chief Mhukhanya kindly donated the land for the new site, close to Mfuwe International Airport, and a team was dispatched to clear it. The plan has since progressed in three phases: phase one, providing water to the site for drinking, washing and building materials, was completed in 2007; phase two, the building of the main centre, is due for completion in November 2008; phase three, the building of accommodation and ablutions block for the children, is scheduled for 2009. As of August 2008 Shenton Safaris have donated US$ 11,500. They would like to thank their 2008 donors: Ondine Chadwick, Chipembele, Antonia Damatta, the Walshes, the Milbanks, the Cavells, the Holmes, the Wallaces, Ian Shenton and Jess, Chris Pullen and Expert Africa for their generous contributions. They are also grateful to Majoru for transporting the roofing materials. However, the need for funds is ongoing, so any further support would be welcomed ( 100 per cent of donations go directly into the building fund).
