I was in Mpika for the week. Mpika is in the Muchinga Province of Zambia, 640 Km away from Lusaka. It was Thursday and I had been wanting to go to Lwitikila Falls since I arrived. I first heard about it from the Receptionist of the Lodge where I was staying. She said that was where people in Mpika went for some out-of-town fun. So I decided I had to go there. I looked it up online and found some surprisingly good directions. After coaxing my travel companions, we were finally on our way to see the falls.
