Kapishya Hot-Springs... simply the best!
Debbie writes... traveller's plans are never set in concrete. On the recommendation of a local Zambian, we set north towards Shiwa and the Kapishya hot springs. Tucked away from everything, we found this piece of heaven on earth! The stunning pools are fed by natural hot springs - making this the best hot bath ever! Soaking with Nick, the owner, we were told that the springs generate 5 litres of pure water every second. Incredibly, it is too pure to bottle for drinking water.

A visit is highly recommended.

The best hot springs ever!

Brilliant morning soak


Teaming up with fellow travellers Ula and Stefan (German), we set off for a 14km walk to find the nearby Chusa Falls. Guiding ourselves through remote villages and bushveld, we finally stumbled across the cascading waterfalls. Stunning sights and refreshingly cool - wonderful walk!

Stefan does his balancing act
