Kings Highway c60km N of Isoka. Great welcome from friendly people. Fresh veg from the gardens. A very good stop after hassle of border crossing.
Kapisha Hot Springs. A beautiful place to spend a few days, overlooking the river. Wallowing in springs with steam rising is a different place for an early morning soak. Visit to Shiwa Ngandu worthwhile.
Forest inn, Fringilla farm and Eureka all make convenient stop off points next to Great North Road, with good facilities.
Mutinondo Wilderness. Fantastic location for campsite with excellent facilities. Views of the hills, walks in the forest, swimming in the river make this an excellent place to stay with good birding and good food at the lodge too.
Bruce Miller Farms. Another great place with a secluded camp by the river. Welcoming and departing cup of coffee. Good birding too. Note there is a new road from Choma, tar most of way to farm.
Waterfront hotel campsite at Livingstone. A real contrast after secluded camps, commercial. Good facilities
Welcome to our Africa blog
We hope all our families and friends will log in from time to time to see how we're getting on - and just to touch base. We all know we shall miss everyone and this is one of the ways we hope to keep in touch. And, of course, we shall be logging on to Skype and emailing whenever we get the chance. This is a massive adventure for us all with a shed load of planning , but once you've fallen for Africa you just have to see more. So here we go!
