As described good place for overnight. Nice scenery, clean restrooms. When I was here in early December, it was really quiet, except for a few trucks coming through using engine break (also as mentioned before). "Limit your stay to 8h" like most rest areas.

To give back the I94 paper, go down G Avenue and turn right on 1st Street. Parking allowed along the Street for 30minutes. Go by feet to the US customs.
Give the paper back, then back into the car, take back G Avenue, turn left on 6th Street and again left on Pan American Avenue.
Take right on 5th avenue, follow the signs to the mexican border.
Easy crossing. Friendly mexican staff.

Great spot. Free and legal dispersed camping for up to 14 days. Note that the GPS marker points to a spot off the road near a livestock corral which has a no parking sign. The better spot is down the road slightly at the Sierra Vista trailhead.

Very nice spaces for campers along the roads around the lagoons. No sign of No Overnight. Beautiful and quiet. Many water birds.

Nice cheap stop over (800kes). Small rooms with clean en-suite and hot shower. The single room we got had a small bed for two. Decent restaurant on site. The entrance port: our car is about 2,50m high and we guess that we had about 30cm left.

We arrived in the dark and did not find the toilet block which is just next to the large empty beautiful carpark, slightly above it. It was sooooo peaceful and clean. Lots of bins, tables and fab sea views.

We came in December when there was 4 inches of snow. The dirt road was pretty clear and easy to get to. There was about 4 other campers there with us. Very beautiful views.

Arrived at 6pm.
Needed place to sleep for one night.

4x4 + roof tent = 17 EUR (hot showers and toilet included (and clean)

Owner and a barmaid speak a little in English, enough to communicate about place and food.

aaaaand I almost forgot to mention - sink at every single camping place is a great convenience.

Right on the beach. Mature trees and shady parking for small number of vehicles and camping. Off the main drag, small numbers of people. Friendly with facilities, toilet and cold shower all free. Cafe has food and drinks so perfect set up on the white sandy beach with free loungers.

Reasonably quick. A 1-hour crossing.
We weren’t asked for a health check.
Walked to immigration. Paid USD50 each for a single-entry visa into Zambia. Had to fill in our names and passport details into a registration book that was lying around. Got our passports stamped and then in the window to the left, we had to pay ZMW275 for carbon tax (highest category has over 3L engine). Upon receipt of payment you’ll be given a Gate Pass.

Next, we had to pay for Road Toll Tax which cost us USD20 which exempts you from having to pay at tolls. Finally, we had to pay ZMW40 for a Border Crossing Fee to Chipata City Council.

The place is stil there, but there’s a large “for sale” at The front. I’ve tried to ring at The gate, but nobody was there. When I tried to call them i had straight away voice mail.

Josh is a very kind and good mechanic! He changed the shock absorbers of our VW synchro and helped us with searching parts down in David. He has good connections to all kind of part stores! His shop is small but he has a lot of tools and stuff!
He also made us a very fair price because he knows that most Overlanders are traveling on a low budget! Thank you Josh
