The road to our camp has been greatly improved, and a 4X4 is no longer necessary in the dry season, when a high clearance 2X4 will be sufficient.
From Lusaka, take the Mongu Road for 150 kilometres. Turn right into the Mumbwa Road. When you get to the first Traffic Circle (Roundabout) turn left onto a dirt road which takes you through a bustling market for about 1 kilometre, then turn right onto the D181. Continue along this road for approximately 106 kilometres, you will pass a prison farm on the left hand side. Keep heading left on the most travelled road and you will reach Mushngashe Conservancy. Once you are here again keep left and start heading down into the park. You will reach a fork in the road that is clearly signed “McBrides Camp”. follow these signs for another 25 kilometres and you will arrive at our little paradise.
