Last week my Uncle Jock and his wife, Alma, from Zambia came to New Zealand for two weeks after a 23-year absence. It has been wonderful to see them again and we had them over to dinner last night for the second time and I took a few terrible photos so I have only included a couple. At the bottom of this post, there is a photo of the main course I made for them and the group at the table. There was a lot of laughter and constant chatter so it was hard to get everyone still for a good photo. The blurry mess on the right is my uncle and that’s Dario laughing at him with Adriano next to him. Alma is on the left. Yes, that’s the best photo I took.
The first photo above is my uncle’s fishing lodge in Zambia. He has created a paradise on earth but now he has decided to sell it. We visited there eleven years ago and loved the place. The lodge is built on a hill overlooking the Zambezi River and is situated on his privately owned game farm which is fully fenced.
It is called Tiger Mile Lodge because of the Tiger fish that inhabit the river in that area. The property is 3100 + hectares (7660 acres) in size with approximately 30 kms of game fencing (2.5 metre tall with 17 strands of 2.24 mm high tensile fencing wire), including 5 kms of Zambezi River frontage.
If anyone is interested in any more information on this property, I have an information pack I can send you. Please get in touch with me through the contact form on this blog. You can also see more HERE.
The recipe for our main course can be found here.
