Somewhere in the night the heaviest rain storm so far hit our tent. The tent held good, but the splashing from the jerry cans still caused the sides to get a bit wet. We planned to get an early start, but then Caro remembered she was suppose to add images to her assignment. So she [...]

Caro got up at 06:00 and went to lie in the hammock again for old time’s sake. Steven was suppose to get us at 08:00, but decided to arrive at 07:00 just when Caro came to wake Hugo up. We thus had to quickly throw everything in our bags and was ready to leave in [...]

We had quite the packing up to do as everything was just thrown on the back seat and in the back. We settled our bill and finally started heading north again, but first another stop at the Shoprite. While Caro started shopping Hugo refueled the MonkeyMobile at the Puma station. We wonder where people who [...]

We initially thought to stay for two days at the falls, but after seeing the run-down facilities and being the only people and still seeing leaking oil we decided to head back to Kasama. We had breakfast and packed up by 10:30. We drove to the Kabwelume Falls only 5km away, but the road took [...]

After settling our bill we left Kasama at 10:30. We missed the turn-off to Mporokoso, but decided to try the bottom road and look for [...]

We slept in our ground tent again, even though we had the MonkeyMobile with us, the one mattress deflated again through the night and at 05:00 in the morning Hugo shifted over to Caro’s mattress. At 06:00 Caro got up for a last dip in the Hot Spring. We quickly packed up and while Caro [...]

Day 53-55 Still Kapishya Hot Springs

2017-04-11T22:31:03+02:00 April 7th, 2017|Categories: Africa, Trip Report, Zambia|

It’s already a week later as I’m writing this so a lot of the emotion has subsided a bit. Looking back we could have done a lot of things differently, but the way it evolved it put a lot of strain on us. On Day 51 and 52, I still tried to stay positive and [...]
