Nobody told me just how good it is to snorkel in fresh water, no waves and tides to worry about, no salt to burn your eyes, and I never imagined that freshwater fish could be so colourful.
The road (unsurfaced) to Nsobe is very long, and very bumpy but when you enter this peace of paradise it all becomes worth the effort. Whether you lie in a hammock, lie back in a deck chair or walk along the beach with your toes in the water, you could easily be excused for imagining that you are on a tropical island, with the waves lapping at the shore and the palm trees swaying in the breeze, a steady stream of fishing boats heading out for the night's catch. You could not hope for better hosts than Craig and Elise, in fact Craig is a mine of information about the north-east of Zambia and I planned our 11 day safari through Northern, Luapula and Muchinga Provinces based on Craig's suggestions for everything from camp sites to pontoons to take (luckily it had recently become a bridge). The food is delicious and there was a nice variety of vegetables and salads as well, and the chalets are extremely comfortable. Amazingly, there is even a fully wheelchair accessible chalet. Airport transport, well yes, if you get to Mpulungu or fly to Nsumbu National Park, they will fetch you by boat, at a price.Room Tip: We were lucky to be upgraded from non-en suite to en-suite, what a treat.

I had an incredible time at Ndole Bay! I spent my New Year's Eve vacation here with my best friend and we were blown away. It's more beautiful in person and the staff were super warm and welcoming! Craig and Elise were responsive to our questions and were sure to be present in case we had concerns. The staff were professional and provided high quality service. The food was amazing and freshly prepared. Perfect paradise by the lake.
