Kawambwa is a small town just 15 km or so before Ntumbachushi Falls. Here we found an immigration office to our absolute delight. We were able to have our passports stamped with another 30 days in Zambia, no charge! This meant that we did not have to rush in order to get to every point we intended visiting.
At Ntumbachushi we met James, a young Zambian in charge of the falls. Once again, we were the only people in the camp (one with NO facilities). We could occupy the coolest spot right next to the fall. Not as high or impressive as the others but, as it turned out, every bit as loud.
James assured us that the falls was 10 x more impressive in the rainy season
The Bushmen paintings were not that impressive but it was fun to get some exercise for a change. The mountains in Zambia are fantastic, but as a result of the huge amount of felt fires, we have not been able to take photos as visibility is no more than 5km.
We stayed at Ntumbachushi for 2 nights as we planned to go into Lusenga Plains the next day and then make our way pass Mueru and Mueru Wantipa Lakes en route to Ndole Bay on Lake Tanganyika.
