As you might be aware, the locals in Africa, north of South African Borders, are constantly mining and panning for gold and diamonds. Thing is, when you are on tour with us, we ask you ever so nicely NOT TO ENGAGE in any illegal activities like trying to buy gold and diamonds. Rather give the locals a handful of cash, and let them buy what they need instead of adding fuel to the gold and diamond fire!
I normally collect about six to fourteen kilos on my travels from Mangochi to Inongo. People come from nowhere early evening when one set up camp. Each individual offer different quantities and materials for sale. Diamonds, gold, and colton is three of the moire popular offerings. I will come away on a round trip with about sixteen or twenty kilos!
My cottage at Lake Inongo is one of the destinations we have planned for our advertised private tours.
