  1. What is the distance from the M9 Chunga turnoff to the Kasabushi turning on the Spinal Road and then how far from there to the camp? M’thanks.

  2. Many thanks. I am gathering data for the next edition of “A Visitor’s Guide to Kafue National Park, Zambia” and will use the information on distances for revisions to the maps. VBW Peter

    • Hi Perri, Our section of the Kafue River is stunning as you can see from the photos on our website. Yes there are plenty of rocks but they make the river so special. Even in the dry season our boat navigates the channels between the various islands and the water level remains high enough for the boat. Andy drives our boat and knows the river pretty well now, it’s a river for slow cruising to enjoy it for fishing, birding and just chillin’. We hope you’ll visit us to see the river for yourself one day. Best wishes Libby

  3. Good morning.

    Planning our next self made Safari in Zambia we would like to stay at your beautiful camp site.
    After some days of stay there we will head to Hippo Bay camp site and from there driving the D769 towards south. Now our question… Do you know something about the road situation of the D769 between the village of Itezhi tezhi and the road crossing D769/M10 (Sesheke-Kazungula). We want to know if this part of the D769 is well a well gravel road.

    Thanks so much in advance for your soonest reply.

    Best regards and greetings from Germany.
