Really beautiful place with lots of options to find your perfect spot.

Not a lot of Ablutions options but fine if you're not too picky about that.

Beautiful area to go for a hike etc.

They didn't want to let me stay alone in the Bush as a woman alone so they moved me in the evening next to the restaurant where the guard is staying. Made a fire for me, could use the facilities at the restaurant and everyone was just really friendly and helpful.

A group of Zimbabweans decided to lease this place from the municipal and turn it back in a beautiful park for the people. It's nice to suppprt these kind of initiatives.

Stayed the night before at the other campsite in the park and would definitely recommend this place.

Still 8 Dollars in total

Checked it out as an option but found several signs stating "Customers Only" and "Unauthorized vehicles will be towed and impounded at owner's expense." They look recently installed ( see photos). No signs of any RVs, big rigs, or vanlifers. You can maybe super stealth here, but I wouldn't chance it.

The restaurant was open. They wanted 10000 for one plate. We negotiated it to 10000 for two plates.

Windshields and all kinds of glass repairs.Had our windshield replaced very quickly and cheap!! in comparison to Europe. Very friendly staff, we could stay the night in a secured and gated parking right next to the workshop

Still 350K for a cottage, didn’t budge on price. Big secure parking behind gate. Ended up staying here just because the card machine next door at Meru fuel station wasn’t working and we wasted 1.5 hrs for it to charge, tried 3 ATMs in town, it seems foreign cards don’t work here. Nice big room with AC, clean sheets, hot shower, DSTV. Wifi signal is there but no Internet, I think they just tell everyone that it’s having issues and don’t bother paying for their connection! We had our induction stove and supplies so cooked our breakfast and left early.

We spent one very quite night there but in the morning (at 10:30) came the border police and let us know that it is not allowed to stay there. They have been waiting until we left the area.

This place is awesome! Best hospitality we’ve had on our 8 month trip so far. Owner, Andrew, is great. We had dinner together and he showed us the storks and vultures. The dinner was yum and everything seems very fairly priced. We took ourselves for a small farm tour to the pigs and orphaned baby goats (very cute). Well worth a stop in for some Zambian hospitality! We will definitely stop in again on our way South again. 10/10

Here some more info I wish I had had beforehand: There are 3 ferry lines, DFDS, Irish and P&O, each taking about 1 1/2 h. Also there is the train/tunnel, faster (~30min crossing), but a bit more expensive and no view. Maybe worth it in stormy weather.
The police helped me look far a cheap ticket online, but if you book for the same day it is very expensive, as in double the price. In the end, I booked a ticket for the next day (4am) with Irish Ferries for 78£ (Hilux with small slide-in camper with driver only) which came with a free flex option. With that I could get on their next boat at 7pm the same day. It seems common that they let you on an earlier boat if there is room. Also they didn't check the vehicle dimensions very carefully. Overall everybody is helpful and relaxed.
There is no customs on this side.

Here I refilled my Italian cylinder, but only thanks to one of the adapters I had with me (I think the one for German connection).
A bit pricey with 1,000 Dalasi, but now I have another month of cold beers!

small car park of the prefecture. we asked a person from the prefecture who was in a moored boat if we could sleep there, it was ok. quiet but windy night. right next to the port entrance to take the Maria Turquesa boat which does the gourmet cruise. if you are lucky you can sleep in front of an iceberg.

petit parking de la préfecture. on a demandé à une personne de la préfecture qui était dans un bateau amarré si on pouvait dormir là, c’était ok. nuit tranquille mais venteuse. juste à côté de l’entrée du port pour prendre la bateau Maria turquesa qui fait la croisière gourmet. si vous avez de la chance vous pourrez dormir devant un iceberg.

Lovely spot near town, flat camping area and suitable for bigger rigs. Stunning views of Lake Victoria and perhaps one of the most beautiful sunrises we've experienced so far.
Great restaurant, bar with drinks etc - free wifi which has good signal.
Toilets are clean, agree with below comments in that shower is basic, we had luke warm water, not hot but certainly not ice cold. Strong pressure.
Grounds are between two restaurants and can be noisy towards late evening but it does get shut down at a reasonable time.

25,000 TZ Shilling pppn.

Would happily stay here again.

Quiet place and nice people.
Last 2km not very fine for our 9tn truck but ok!
We spent 2 nights here.
The second one just 100zmw for parking
There is no water because a power problem in the line and the pump not working!
Recommed the trek to Myamba and Luke beach from here, check with Muchichi.

Kalambo Falls Official Campsite -8.59733, 31.24004

There is also acces from Kalambo falls
1,5h Kalambo-Myamba and 2h up.
We took a canoe from Myamba to Luke’s beach, very easy.
Can contact Muchichi in the falls!
Rain season an the beach was not very big but great!
Worth the visit.
Clear water and hot weather but we didn’t swim thinking in bilharzia… we were not sure about it!

Luke’s Beach -8.60875, 31.19611

I passed there at 5:30 pm and was open, didnt see nobody. The inicial of salar has just a little of water. I did the track to uyuni and in the final was more wet. Even i go slowly, the motorcycle is very dirt of salt.

Signs everywhere say no overnight parking. There is parking lot security as well. We decided not to stay.

Good, professional car wash. We just came from the Serengeti and car was a muddy disaster. 20,000 tz shilling for outside the car, underneath the body and engine bay clean.
Fast and efficient, had lunch down the road while we waited.

This huge Camping offers a lot of space. Big rig friendly. Many trees for shade. Bathroom with cold showers. No internet. Electricity is only in the toilet block, to charge a handy etc. We paid 50 uruguaische Peso p. P. per day. The River Casupa is right next to the camp. You can swim, paddling or just have a nice look at it. We loved this place. Stayed 3 days. Even on weekends it's not much crowded. Rubbish bins are everywhere. We recommend.

7,000/person. We parked right by the river. Lots of picnic tables. An alright place for the night compared to other campgrounds along this area.

Lovely spot, just pull over on the side of this very wide beach access lane. We asked the bartender if it was ok, he said no problem - I think it's public land but we had a drink at the hotel anyway. Food/drinks available from 7am to 9pm. As others have mentioned, there is a pool with outdoor showers. Quiet and ok cell service.

Nice campsite with lots of space, also for vehicles. Many animals around, dogs, sheep, horses... Good, hot showers open from 8-11am and 18-21pm. WiFi at the refugio, but if you park close, the quality is okay. Price is 8.000 Pesos ppn. We recommend 😃

Camping Al Galope -46.12580, -72.15212

Nice campground. Full hookups with space between sites. Friendly hosts.
Full hookups have a $10 per day fee on top of the campsite fee of $20.
Would stay here again if in the area.

Awesome wild camping spot on BLM land. Can be a bit loud with people riding ATVS and shooting but generally they are pretty far off. There are some Indian petroglyphs right near the site, a couple of old mines, one of which you can walk down into safely. There’s also a small pond within a mile or so. Lots to see and explore at this site. Somewhat difficult to get to, after passing over the wash take your next right and follow the power lines on til you see a slight hill on your right and it’s behind that hill. 4x4 is a good idea mostly because of the sandy wash. Lots of interesting mountain biking trails that someone went through and named with wooden signs. Hammocking from the power lines and watching sunrise on the hill over the wash are some special experiences this site has to offer. Any of the barrel cactus you see with golden fruit are edible and make good snacks while out hiking. Lived out here on and off while attending CDI in Goodyear and is one of my favorite spots in the area. If you stay up at night long enough with low music playing desert foxes will come up to camp and say hi looking for fruit or vegetables to use for hydration.
Cell service is spottyish (Verizon) one bar and LTE loads videos slowly Spotify quickly.

Really nice spot to stay overnight. Quiet through the night (I arrived at midnight, though)

As described, price is almost worth it just to use the very clean kitchen and swimming pool.

not abandoned anymore. a family moved in 5 months ago and are now the "caretakers" of the tourism site across the street.

Worked well enough for a night. Didn't ask anyone and wasn't bothered. Parked in the back near the adjacent park trailhead. (walking and MTB if you're inclined) Some highway and general traffic noise. Cops came through a few times around midnight, looking up into the park like they were searching for someone. They didn't seem to care about me in my promaster.

Good spot for one night. We arrived really late and were glad to find a calm, hidden spot. The next morning there were quite a few people passing by and stopping to look at our car. Some asked us what we were doing there. I guess you could also spend the day here but for us it didn’t feel right. When we left some police guys were stationed at the main road and wanted money from us. We negotiated our way out. As I said: okay spot for one night but nothing more.
