KABULA LODGE TO KASABUSHI
This is a full day’s drive (about 600 km), but you can divide it into more manageable chunks by adding extra overnight stops as you travel north. From Kabula Lodge, it’s 250 km north along a good tar road to the busy town of Mongu, which has a Shoprite if you need supplies. Mongu is on the eastern bank of the river – you cross the Zambezi on a bridge south of Sioma Falls (also known as Ngonye Falls).
A soul-destroying 187 km along the M9 tar road awaits, from Mongu east to Kaoma, where you can refuel one last time. Drive 70 km further east and enter Kafue National Park. Inside the park, travel 45 km to the turn-off, then 44 km along a gravel road to Kasabushi.
