- Keep bearing left and the Chipembele Offices are just 100m from the first classrooms, on the left hand side.
Directions to Chipembele Conservation Centre
- From the filling station in Mfuwe drive toward the Park and after a couple of hundred metres turn left where you see a number of tourist lodge signs.
- After about 3km you will see a sign on the left that says Wildlife Camp, Mulberry Mongoose and Kafunta. Turn there and drop down onto a dirt road. You will start to see wildlife from here and no more buildings.
- Carry on down the road ignoring the signs on the right for Wildlife Camp and after another km or so ignore the signs for Nkwali. Keep straight ahead.
- Continue past the sign that says No fishing at Tundwe Lodge, bearing left (if you turned right there you would end up at Chief Kakumbi’s Palace).
- Go past the signs that say Kafunta Lodge, again bearing left. You are now just over half way.
- About 2km past the Kafunta turn you will drive over a dry river bed with a broken bridge on your left. This is the Kafunta River.
- Keep on that track for another 5 km until you reach an obvious T-junction.
- On the right you will see a sign up in a tree for Chipembele.
- Turn right here and Chipembele is on the right about 500m down that track.
