Zambezi Traveller (Issue 14, Sept 2013) Full Content Listing


Cover Story

Bridging the Zambezi
Livingstone foresaw the Zambezi as an economic gateway for Africa. How wrong he was! When Victorian explorer Dr David Livingstone built a paddle steamer and started his exploratory journey from the Zambezi Delta, his goal was to open the interior of the continent to commercial development. From the time that his expedition floundered disappointingly at the Cahora Bassa rapids, politicians, economists and engineers in numbers have regarded the Zambezi as a colossal obstruction to regional trade and communication.
