Almost Camping at Blue Lagoon National Park

Blue Lagoon is a wildlife sanctuary on the Kafue plains a place without traffic, electricity, running water or phone signal, unless you stand in one particular spot which I couldn’t quite find. It is the perfect place to see the stunning milky way whilst sitting around a camp fire.20180708_121142.jpg20180707_113651.jpg20180708_083236We were booked at Nakeenda where we were supposed to be camping initially but then difference in price between camping or being in a chalet was minimal so opted for that. There’s meant to be pythons in the area but thank goodness I did not see any as I’m not a fan.20180707_17104320180707_18311720180707_200338If bird watching is for you it is the place to be unfortunately I did not get to take any proper bird pictures as they kept flying away when the car would move, and I did spot a monitor lizard when driving through on the bird trail.20180707_16393520180708_09325820180708_101125Although it really does feel like you are in the middle of nowhere it brings a sense of quiet from the outside world, where the only stress comes from what to eat so you can rest and recharge your batteries.20180708_083310

      Hi Philip, post is July 2018 no idea can ask the person that arranged the trip, but the place is so secluded and there’s zero signal so no idea.

      There’s a contact number online for Nakeenda Lodge and Blue Lagoon National Park they can both advise what the chalet status is.
