Please be advised that it is a requirement that all vehicles entering Zambia have Zambian 3rd Party Insurance. This insurance can be purchased at most border posts.

We advise however that we have received reports that the agents selling this insurance at the border posts are charging excessive amounts for this insurance.  We would therefore suggest that travellers consider obtaining this insurance direct from the agents in Lusaka prior to travelling. This can be done online and we have been advised by some of our visitors that Phoenix Insurance in Lusaka provide a good service. The charge should not be more than 140ZMW or about $14 per vehicle for a period of 30 days. (March 2018).  The border post agents are charging up to 4 times this amount. Please note that we accept no liability for the validity of the above information.

We have also recently learnt that all South African vehicles entering Zambia must have a Police Clearance Certificate. This certificate can usually be obtained from any police station in South Africa.

Disclaimer Notice/Indemnity. ESSENTIAL TO READ
Please note that Kabula Lodge is not only situated “in the bush” but is also situated directly on the banks of a large and mighty river, both of which present their own inherent dangers and risks.

Hire of Boats and Barge: Notice
Please note that the above Disclaimer/Indemnity also applies when making use of the boats, and the barge, which are offered for hire at Kabula Lodge and all passengers are requested to make use of and wear lifejackets before embarkation and throughout the time spent on the water, and especially if traversing rapids. Life jackets are to be requested from the boat/barge operator before the start of the trip and it is a condition of boarding our boats or barge that you accept that it is your responsibility to make sure you have a suitable lifejacket for your exclusive use throughout the excursion. If you prefer not to wear a life jacket you do so entirely at your own risk however you are requested to ensure that there is a suitable life jacket at hand for your exclusive use should their be an emergency during the excursion.
  • Please note that with the upgrading and bitumen surfacing of the main road between Katima Mulilo (Sesheke) and Mongu, access into the area has been made easier and with it has come a few incidents of petty theft. Visitors are therefore asked to be vigilant and it is recommended that valuables are locked in vehicles, especially at night. The owners and staff of Kabula cannot, and do not, accept liability for any losses of any kind.
  • Kabula is not connected to the national electricity grid with lighting in the chalets, kitchens, etc, being provided by solar panels and batteries.  You are kindly requested therefore to be vigilant in turning off lights during the day and when you are  not in the room at night. If the lights are left on for long periods the batteries will go flat and you will not have lights! You are also advised to bring a good supply of torches for use when moving around outside at night. Headlamps are particularly useful.
  •  Kabula is in a malaria area and whilst the number of reported cases of malaria is low we recommend that you be vigilant and make use of mosquito repellents and use the provided mosquito nets over the beds when sleeping at night.
  • Kabula can get rather hot in summer and cool clothes are recommended as are wide brimmed hats.
  • Don’t forget your binoculars, bird books and cameras.  There is lots to see!

New bridge offers respite to one of Africa’s busiest borders

11TH MAY 2021

Botswana and Zambia have opened the $260-million Kazungula bridge, which may help alleviate congestion at one of Africa’s busiest border crossings in neighbouring Zimbabwe.


The 923 m road and rail bridge offers a faster and cheaper alternative to a route via Beitbridge on Zimbabwe’s border with South Africa. Kazungula has a one-stop border facility located near the quadripoint that links Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
