    Re: Epupa falls from angolan side?

    I have good relationship with one SA rental company and they'll make an exception for me and allow me to take their vehicles to Angola.

    Re: Epupa falls from angolan side?

    Thank you for all contributions. OK, I will omit Epupa falls. My road would be Oncocua, Moimba, Otechifeng, Pediva then. Also not suitable for novice drivers and would be better to avoid Iona NP at...

    Re: South Luangwa to Mpika

    Many thanks kwaaibaai. This is the sort of information I was desperately hoped for. It seems there will be no need to backtrack through Lusaka from Mfuwe to Kapishya even at the end of November.

    Re: Epupa falls from angolan side?

    Re: South Luangwa to Mpika

    D105 through Chama is at T4A too. So somebody had to travel it. The climb up to escarpment here is even less demanding than NL Transit Road on the map (according the contour lines span).
