Having enthused so much about my first impressions I feel obliged to give detailed directions, although it is sign posted and the route is clear on T4A.
We left Wildlife Camp at the leisurely time of 10H00. Take the drive out of wilderness camp as if driving to Mfuwe Gate. When striking the tar leading to the Mfuwe gate to the left, take it to the right through the village of Mfuwe. This is on the road to Chipata. There is a turnoff clearly sign posted Zikomo Safari Camp, which is 19,1km down a dirt track of varying quality. It would definitely be tough when wet as there is plenty of deep rutting where it passes through the typical black cotton soil of the Mopani sections. You also have to ford 2 substantial streams of about 20m wide which at this time were shallow, apparently during April they were in flood. One drives through subsistence farming villages including cotton before entering the game management area. This continues as the road into the Nsefu Sector of the park and the Milyoti Gate where one pays park entrance fees when visiting the park from Zikomo. The worst parts of the road have had a rough grade from ZAWA.
After about 13km on this road Zikomo is sign posted off to the left. In this Game Management Area one begins to see herds of puku on the slightly wet dambos. Three km along a side channel of the river you reach the camp and lodge. The total distance from Wildlife Camp was 27kms and will take less than an hour but seems as if worlds apart because of the isolated feeling.
