Lusaka – Chipata, Zambia
We depart early in the morning to cross the Luangwa River into to Chipata by means of the Great Eastern Road, driving through luscious countryside and small, quaint villages. Formally named ‘Fort Jameson’, Chipata has a population of about 98,416 and is the capital of the Zambia’s Eastern Province. This unique town offers colourful fruit and vegetable markets, as well as an unexpected amount of ornate temples – due to its large Indian community. If time is on our side we may be able to make a stop in Chipata before arriving at our campsite, where we will overnight prior to crossing the border of Malawi the following day.
