Tie up for the night – A great stopover between Lusaka or Kariba and Livingstone

 

This well established campsite between Mazabuka and Monze in the Southern Province of Zambia is ideal for travelers North or South.

The campsite is located on the Moorings Farm, which has been in continuous operation since 1920. A short drive from the tar road, down 2 km on a well-maintained dirt road, brings you to the lovely site where you can park your vehicle, pitch your tent, have a cool drink and a hot shower.

The spacious campsite is located under large indigenous trees with a view of the African bush. The site is secluded and secure in the centre of Moorings farm, which is known throughout the region for its many old trees and a variety of birds.

There is a fully stocked bar and open dining area with comfortable chairs to enjoy the peaceful view. A self catering kitchen is also available.

The ablution block has become famous for its cleanliness and great showers. Each side (women’s and men’s) has two toilets, two showers, two sinks and a laundry basin – all tiled and screened to keep the bugs out.

On the grounds are small katengas (open walled thatched huts) with electricity (outlets for 240V in British 3 prong format) and a light.

The katengas are ideal for sitting around a campfire on cool evenings (particularly June and July). During the day, they provide a bit of shade away from the dining area. They make an ideal “living room” next to which you can pitch your tent.

For the “tent weary” traveller, we have en-suite thatched chalets situated in shady spots.  Each chalet is fully mosquito guazed.  The en-suite facilities consist of a shower, basin and toilet with  all bedding and towels provided, along with fans to keep you cool and tea and coffee making facilities for that essential early morning cup of tea. The main kitchen area is available for travellers wanting to self-cater. Facilities include a fridge, freezer, stove, microwave as well as crockery and cutlery.
