It does seem to be getting more and more difficult to get away from the humdrum of modern society. The noises of vehicles, airplanes, electric wires and refrigerators – the constant buzz of civilization that is never ceasing. Ever wondered what life would be like when these are removed? This is why it is such a special experience to be able to spend five days in the wilderness without the sound of a car engine or generator – not even the hum of a fridge to hamper the sounds of the wild.
Imagine yourself sitting in Livingstone, Zambia, looking out over the mighty Zambezi river with the sun sinking slowly into the horizon and the loud but somehow soothing noise of the falls in the background. Propped up against a cosy cushioned couch on the deck of Tongabezi Lodge... Can you see yourself there, so can we, like something out of a dream! Read all about the infinite joys at Tongabezi Lodge!
The competition is now closed, and the winner will be announced on Monday! Sue Flood was photographing Emperor penguins at the Snow Hill Island rookery in the Weddell Sea, Antarctica. What do you think the young chick is saying to its parent?!
