Lochinvar is easiest to approach from Monze, on the Livingstone–Lusaka Road – about 287km from Livingstone and 186km from Lusaka. The road that heads northwest from Monze, signposted for Namwala, is just north of the grain silos on the Lusaka side of town. From town head for the point (GPS: TULOCH).
It passes Chongo village and forks (GPS: T2LOCH) about 8km afterwards. Ask local advice to find this junction if necessary. Take the right fork, or you will end up in Kafue. Follow this road for about 10km and then turn left at another sign (GPS: TULV14). It is then about 14km to the park gate. This last section of the track twists and turns, but all the tracks that split off eventually rejoin each other and lead to the park. There are also a few more signs so, if you become unsure, ask a local person and they'll show you the way. The gate to Lochinvar (GPS: LOGATE) is about 48km from Monze.
An excellent (albeit very out-of-date) 1:50,000 visitors' map to Lochinvar was published by the Surveyor General in 1986, and is still available at their main office in Lusaka. It indicates the vegetation types and also gives photographs and short descriptions of some of the park's interesting features and wildlife. Most of the 'camps' depicted are now disused, and some of the roads now seem as if they were figments of a cartographer's imagination.
