For someone whose village is in the Eastern part of Zambia, I am poorly acquainted with it. Some time ago, I traveled to Petauke, a town in the Eastern Province or as we like to call it Kumawa. I must have been viewing the town through romantic glasses because the small town living appealed to me.
How I got there
Petauke is 400 km away from Lusaka. It took a 4 hour drive to get there. To go by bus, you can get on one at intercity bus terminal heading to Chipata. Then you will drop off at Petauke because it is along the road. It will cost approximately K120.
