In the last twelve years they built and operated there own Safari Lodge on the shore of LAke Malawi near the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve.

This story takes in the extremes from the beautiful bride in her white wedding dress going to church on the back of her Fathers bicycle to the nightmare drive across Africa with what turned out to be a diamond smuggler. It highlights the corruption in the Police force who could not be trusted. It also highlights the tragedy of the scourge of HIV/AIDS in Sub Saharan Africa in which it killed three million people,
