Zambia. South Luangwa National Park (Nsefu Sector). Zikomo Campsite. Wednesday 20 May 2015. Week 6, Day 39.

We were able to buy the first detailed map of SLNP for US$5 at the Milyoti Gate and together with T4A we were able to find our way around the Nsefu Sector, where the sign posting leaves quite a bit to be desired.

The road directly north to Chichele Hot Springs is 18km long but goes slowly because of the road conditions and the game viewing. One then loops west to the river following loop after loop along the river and through the very attractive riverine vegetation with many magnificent trees. Our game drive, with a break for brunch, took 8hr. Altogether we covered just over 80 very enjoyable km.
