The review below is the personal opinion of Chris Sparks and not that of SafariBookings.
An adventure; a good story.
We arrived at Blue Lagoon in the dry season and boy was it dry. We set up camp under the tree, and the staff helped us fill a paddling pool for the kids. The old house was great to eat in and was a welcome hint at civilisation, and had plenty of character. Unfortunately when we set off the next morning to see the park our van wouldn't start, the rest of the day was spent walking to the airstrip to stand under the only tree where a cell phone would work and try to get help to come during the week of one of the refinery shut downs, so fuel was scarce. Fortunately a couple of guys who were looking at starting a camp were visiting for the day and took my wife and kids back to Lusaka. Our mechanic flew in in his BMW at about midnight, crashed into a tree, fixed the van in 5 minutes, and we were home with a memory, a story, but no safari.
