We travelled from Namibia and crossed the border at Sesheke - the situation on the Zambian side has improved drastically, new buildings, organised procedures, friendly and efficient staff. There is an ATM, so no need to buy Kwacha from the vendors.
The road from Sesheke to Kazangula (120 km) is a nightmare potholes and more potholes. Takes about 3 hours to get to Kubu Cabins. Once we got there we knew that the trip through "Potholia" was worth every km travelled. Kubu Cabins is managed by the owners of the neighbouring Camp Nkwazi and they do a fabulous job. The perfectly maintained campsite is direct on the river and has everything to spoil a camper. Just to mention...lawn, trees, braai area, a spacious Lapa, separate wash up and laundry basins, clean and well functioning ladies and gents ablutions and electricity.
To sit at the fireplace on the river, listening to the sounds of Hyena and Lion at night was just amazing.
The river activities take place from Camp Nkwazi - we did a sundowner cruise with a friendly and knowledgable guide - what a treat!
We stayed at Kubu Cabins for 4 nights and had one dinner at Camp Nkwazi. We were served a five star 3-course meal!!!!!!
Our stay was 100% perfect - THANK YOU Paul and team!
