MUKUSI CABINS (more details on my Hotels Tip)
Budget travellers need every advantage they can get and this is a great one. You can get free use of the showers, toilets and pay for sole use of a cabin and get 2 people in. a cabin. This is all because the office is not within eyesight of the cabins or shared showers/toilets. The best thing is just to park in the grounds and try not to look obvious. They do sometimes have a staff member walking here or there.
Just in case you think I am trying to rip these folks off, just remember they owe me. Somehow, maybe by accident, I was charged an extra 10% between first speaking to reception and getting my money out of my car. Overall it is a good place to stay in terms of facilities, price and location near 2 borders.
Please rate this tip if it saves you money. Thanks.
Chobe bridge between the border of Namibia and Botswana is a low bridge. The Chobe river was like a 200 meter wide wetland, and not a flowing river when I was there in July/August. But the water is higher during the rainy season in December to April. 2009 was a rainy year with inundation in the area around Chobe and Zambezi river.
No people lives in the area around the bridge.
The main street of Katima Mulilo is a hectic street with a lot of hustle and bustle. The street pass through the downtown and ends up in the bush. Turn left and go north if you are going to Zambia or Botswana.
