Response from NdoleBayLodge, General Manager at Ndole Bay Lodge
Responded 09 Apr 2018
Thanks so much for your review! Its this kind of feedback which is invaluable to clients wishing to visit so we always appreciate when our guests take the time to write for us. On the good side, there is currently a grader and roller working on the worst of the dirt road between Nsama to Nsumbu so although its still dirt road, the condition should be improving over the next few weeks, especially now as the rains are ending. I will always still recommend a good 4X4 vehicle as it does make the journey much more comfortable. Thanks again and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will visit our little piece of paradise again in the future. Kindest regards, Elise
