Adam, an old friend of mine, whom I met back in 2013 on an island in the upper Zambezi, was now managing the Livingstone Backpackers and invited us to join him and our new Spanish friends to his recently bought piece of land inside the Zambezi river gorge at rapid 21.
Together with a friend he founded a company called Freedom Camps, bought this incredible piece of land, and started to develop it.
A lot of hard labor and 4 month later the place has a nice trail from the rift down into the gorge, a couple of nicely situated campsites, a community place with bon fire, a bathroom and a chill out lounge close to completion. The recent rains washed a huge part of the beach away, but the rising river will soon cover the areas and leave a new layer of beautiful beach sand. I could hardly believe that he managed to get such an incredible piece of land.
So beautiful, perfectly situated inside a stunning gorge, on the mighty Zambezi river including a private beach. I’m speechless.
