Description

A few campsites and chalets on a working farm which is 2km away. The sites are on a nice meadow with big trees. Every site has its own little boma. Clean ablutions, cold beer! Limited mobile signal, ask the staff for the best spots!

Camping as described by other comments. We paid K140pppn. The ablution has a hot water issue though or no water rather. Bummer. We had a restful night though.

lovely place surrounded by trees and birds.
4 huts for campsite (140pppn) and 3 chalets (700 the chalet for 2).
quiet place, full of stars.
very hot shower, western toilet, dish basin, electricity, light, brai, water tap. perfect for a stopover. no noise from the road because you are at 2 kilometers inside the bush.
bar (cold drinks), restaurant (better to order in advance).
no wifi, no visa machine so come with cash.
only minus : there are some pigs and depending of the wind, you can smell them :-(

Lovely overnight stop in the flat shady meadow. Firewood requested and received. Donkey boiler provided hot water. Clean ablutions, braai, tap, bin and built up cement table at each site with thatch lapa. Electicity points in lapa but didnot use. Staff pleasant enough. Lots flies due to pigs and cows, few mozzies. Separate scullery area and deep washing basin in bathroomsmake foe an easy stay.

Very dry when we were there and looking somewhat neglected. Very little shade in hot, dry season. Few vervet monkeys around but not troublesome. Donkey heated showers etc OK, electricity only available in the few bomas which do not offer shade for one's vehicle. ZKw 140 pppn camping.

Very good for a stopover. We found everything clean. We are pleased with this place.

Nice campsites and chalets with a small bar and restaurant/kitchen. Firewood can be bought and there is also nice ablutions. Good stopover between Kazangula and Lilongwe. It's also pet friendly which was great for us as we were traveling with our 2 dogs.

Just a note, the sign for the turnoff from the main road is quite small and easy to miss but there is a spot a few hundred meters up the road where you can turn around.

Family Cottage - 1000zk - sleeps 4 - has kitchen
Twin cottage - 700zk - sleeps 2

Stayed in both, toilets are in bad shape. The cistern inside is tied with string. They can try a little harder.

Other than that, the place is beautiful. Large tress, lots of birds. Cottages are nicely built, hot showers.

Choosing the campsite while avoiding the two backward sites. The smell of a nearby pigsty can be quite disturbing.

As described by others. K140pppn. Quiet and safe but neglected.

Basically the ONLY decent stopover between Livingstone and Lusaka. Its rainy season, so lush green grass with abundant trees. Water + electricity available. Most stands have nice roofed ‘lapa’ with braai stands. Donkey boiler was lit when we arrived as we were the only guests, but did not produce hot water…so cold showers unfortunately. The rest = perfect for stopover.

Still one of our favorite stopovers. Nice green spacious lawn under big trees. Electricity and warm showers. Nice halfway point between Lusaka and Livingstone.
Still K120 p/p for tour companies and locals. Birders paradise with very good sightings.

We obviously chose a bad day. Chalet basin drain blocked. Large “Day visitor“ party of about 20 people with very loud music and shouting. They eventually departed at 8pm.
Chose a chalet after a long day. Clean enough and beds fine.

As described, camp on open ground, some have little boma setups. chalets available. ablutions are clean but need some lighting and the donkey was obviously tired that night.

Nice quiet camp site 140kw pppn. Electricity available and hot donkey shower. Wood for sale 20kwa

Report Check-In

Great place for a stopover after many hours driving. Toilets/showers a bit dark and shower definitely lacks a bit of pressure but still worth a night stay. Tap water is from borehole and it is potable according to receptionist. Official written price for 2022 is 140 Kwacha ppn. No network with MTN.

still a perfect place to stay. quiet and a bit of bush feeling. it's a constantly maintained place so if something is not perfect it will be done. best place for a stopover

Beautiful, spacious and very quiet campsite. Access for BigRig: Note the branches, but otherwise problem-free. Colorful, wonderful bird life.

Report Check-In

The lawn was looking a little dry and unloved. the sites had everything they needed but were a little bit past their best. The staff was very friendly and helpful. 110kw pppn for camping. We had an early start and a long drive so opted for the family Chalet for 800kw. The chalet had everything you needed but was not very nicely finished. Functional, but that is about it. Clearly a nice campsite in the past, but needs done TLC.

One of the few campsites that is conveniently located a bit off the main road and thus is wonderfully quiet at night. We stayed here 2 times before and are always looking forward to checking in again. Good hot showers, nice bathrooms, electricity and water tap at the sites... if there were some cooking from the owners, it would be just perfect. Also, nice to have the fresh milk sale at the junction of the main road...

Report Check-In

The whole camp site looks like a park. Cut lawn to camp on and big trees for shade. Staff is very friendly, ablutions are clean with warm water.
A little off the road and very quiet.
Lots of birds that you can watch and listen to.
Water is transparent and drinkable.
We were the only ones with a biker that arrived a day after us.
A place to relax. Either at your camp site or the big covered terrace in front of the bar.

A very reliable stop over on the way from Lusaka to Livingstone. Nice ablution block, water was cold but only because we arrived late and were the only campers. Staff started the fire to warm up the water. Very spacious sites with your own shelter, braai, stone table, tap and sockets. Very quiet at night, wonderful star gazing. Staff friendly. Paid 100 kwacha pppn.

We stayed here and it was great. The manager came past the next morning checking on our stay and keen on our feedback. The ablutions are clean and there is ample hot water. Electricity is available on some of the sites. Staff are helpful without being intrusive. This place is a yes

Same as written, but hot shower with pressure. Pressure always an issue in these parts and temperature depends on when the fire is heated.

Nice place for a stop over! The ablutions are clean, nice shelter, braai spot, water tap. Grassy sites with trees and horses. Only the shower is not good: low pressure and cold. Price is 120kw pp, but negotiated down to 100kw pp.

Great place. Only the sound of frogs and cows. Ablutions are clean.

Not such a great place, to be honest. They’re rethatching the campsite huts and the whole place just feels a bit run-down... Price now K120 per person for camping. A bit steep for what it is.

Nice and quiet, even over the weekend.
Restaurant food is simple (eg beef stew, fried chicken....) but quite small portions at 50kw each.
Camping was 100kw pppn.

Very quiet at night, close to nature, birds at night and horses during the day. We made a couple of small walks to the farm (heading away from the main road) and to the main road/railway where women were selling fresh milk in the evening.
On the campsite itself, there was not much business when we were there, bar was closed (even though we insinuated that we were interested), also, when we asked whether it was possible to buy fresh meat from the farm, the woman at the reception did not make an effort to fix that for us. We enjoyed the two nights, though, fresh air, fresh milk and a book exchange shelf at the reception. Ablutions ok.

Big and nice camping-clean ablutions- flat and grassy pitches-friendly reception-we kept away the flies and muscitos with muscito coil-the grass was short-80 kwacha pp

Report Check-In

Beautiful campsite with almost everything you need. No wifi but all pitches have a braai, kitchen block with water tap, a boma with power outlet and light, and lots of space in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. Ablutions block is pretty far away for most pitches bit spotless clean and very well maintained. 80 ZKW pppn. Lots of birds and apparently also monkeys around. Only drawback that I can think of is the abundance of insects. Some flies during the day, some big spiders in the evening and tons of aggressive ants in the morning.
