Description [ correction ]

About 100 km north of Mpika, you’ll find Kapishya Hot Springs, a natural hot spring surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, a great place to relax after a long day. The water is free of sulphur and is a comfortable temperature, the bottom of the pool is pure white sand. An easy hike away are some nice rapids and recently-discovered rock paintings, ask at the lodge for directions. Note, the rapids (named Chusa Falls) are located within the grounds of Chusa Falls Hydro-Electric Power Station so you’ll be accompanied by a ZESCO guide when visiting. If you’ve been on the road for a while, the springs are a wonderful place to relax for a few days.

Soak in the beauty, relax with a book, have twice-daily (or more!) natural mineral baths, and recharge your batteries before tackling the rest of your journey. Early birds can enjoy a lovely sunrise at the spring, with the dappled effect of the sunlight on the water making for great photographic opportunities. Or enjoy a relaxing bath while gazing at the stars. The lodge has a comfortable pub & restaurant with excellent meals, and welcomes campers (reservations must be made for meals). If you’re visiting on the weekend, you may share the springs and campground with a fair number of day visitors, so try and time your stay to weekdays.
