About 127km north of Sesheke, and less than 10km south of Zambia's spectacular Ngonye Falls, Maziba Bay (GPS:MAZIBA) has a superb location on the western bank of the Zambezi River. It used to be a spectacular camp, run by David and André Van de Merwe, who are both very colourful characters involved in a wide variety of local entrepreneurial schemes. However, last time I drove in here (it's 2km off the road up a fairly sandy track) the place was closed; the chalets seemed to be still standing but the place had turned into a sawmill. It clearly wasn't open for business. Sadly, there was nobody around to ask about what was happening, and I haven't been able to contact anyone subsequently.
Should it ever re-open, this lodge had the most spectacular beach of fine white sand stretching down to the Zambezi which (but for the local crocodile population) would put it on a par with the best of the Indian Ocean islands. Unlike many of the other river camps here, Maziba Bay was close enough to the Ngonye Falls to offer white-water rafting, kayaking and canoe safaris on the river, as well as fishing trips and even micro-light flights! So if anyone does ever re-open a lodge on this site, it'll certainly be worth a visit!
