Before coming on this trip many a traveler had told us about Africa heavy vs. Africa light. Africa heavy is what they show on all the TV shows in America. Villages with no electricity, running water, and dirt roads are Africa heavy. Africa light is clean, relatively modern and paved roads.

The Road to Lusaka
We arrived at the chaotic bus station in Livingstone to board our coach bus to Lusaka a half hour before departure as requested. After all the nightmare stories we heard about transportation in the third world, our trip to Lusaka went off like clockwork. The bus left only 15 minutes late. We made Lusaka a mere 7 hours later as promised. On the way we were treated to the countryside of Zambia out our window.
