I was thinking that Kazangula District’s office would be in Kazangula town (sounds reasonable, right?), and I was starting off to Kazangula one morning with just a quick final stop at the Provincial Office in Livingstone. And the folks at the PHO offered me a lift to the Kazangula office, which I thought was incredibly generous (at least a 45 minute drive!). I accepted and settled in for the drive… and that drive lasted five minutes! The Kazangula District Health Office ended up being *in* Livingstone!! What luck for me to find out on the morning that I was to go to Kazangula where the office was located!!
And, I couldn’t have been more pleased about this (Kazangula’s office being in Livingstone). Kazangula is a border town, and that border is formed by the Chobe River. Three countries can be seen from Kazangula town — Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia. It is exactly as you expect a border town to be — loud, dirty, and feeling unstable/unsafe. I was so, so glad to *not* have to be visiting this town!
