We then had a nightmare journey after leaving the main road to get to the crossing to the island. It was the wet season and had been raining pretty heavy, our 4x4 had no chance of getting through the mud, we got stuck and luckily found another driver who helped to pull us out of the mud on various occasions, the locals also helped push us out. When we finally got there we knew we had serious car problems (which we were relying on to get us back to the north of Zambia) so we had to cut our trip short to see a mechanic and do the dreaded journey again the next day which involved about 20 locals and a 4x4 pushing us through the mud. The 1 night we did have there was such an experience I will remember it forever. It is a hidden gem, a paradise island on the Zambezi which is a great base to visit livingstone. The guests all eat dinner together around a big table and the bar operates with an honesty tab. you'll meet some amazing people and won't want to leave! You can arrange day trips, fishing trips and experience life in the local village. I will hopefully return one day in the dry season. If you do decide to go in the wet season you can arrange a pick up from the owner from living stone if you contact them first.
