Fun in the Forest 1

Overview
This is a nice and short route starting from the gym that winds through the Leopard’s Hill Forest Reserve in a nice single track loop. Nothing too technical though there are a couple of steep climbs on gravel that will need the granny gear! There are masses of trails branching off at all times so ample opportunity to extend and explore! Could be a decent run or walk if that’s what floats your boat.

Namaziyo Falls from Kabanana Village

Overview
The Namaziyo Falls are on the Namaziyo River, a tributary to the Zambezi River. The path starts at the village of Kabanana on the Chirundu Road, about 10kms before the turn off to Siavonga. Directions to the falls were kindly provided by Quentin Allen.

Guides
Three men and four women took us to the falls. Laxon and Lawrence and one other chap as well as four wonderfully good fun female guides whose names we will identify and post on the site as soon as possible. It would be better for future walks to have just two guides and agree on a price before leaving for the walk!!

Stats
Length 11.7km
Ascent 464m
Descent: 464m
Difficulty: moderate [we need a system to grade the difficulty of the walks]
