Mbizo Consulting and Tours (Sefula, Western Zambia)
We went exploring this part of western Zambia a couple of years back. Very much a preliminary visit, and we look forward to going back as we have many unanswered questions and sites to visit. The Barotse Floodplain is a unique place, and is currently under review as a World Heritage Site. We were privileged to be one of those asked to assess the application documents. We also hope to assist the community in formulating a plan to safeguard the royal graves. Cannot wait to get out of lockdown and back on the road.
