Mongu Vacation Packages
Mongu isn't the only place in Zambia worth experiencing; visitors should also head off and experience the special qualities of the nearby scenery, cities and towns.
Head outside and get active in the area around Mongu. Try abseiling or give bungee jumping a spin.
Those who travel often know that eating what the locals eat is a great way to taste a region's character. Two of the region's best-loved ingredients are millet and mutton. Cooked freshwater fish and ndiwo (relish from meat and vegetables) are just two local choices that will imbue visitors' with the true flavours of Zambia. And when it is time for the final course, you should try golabjamoun (sweet potato, flour and milk). The bars in this region nearly always serve chibuku, so order one if you love a good brew. Enjoy one of the most common drinks in the region; maheu (maize meal drink).
The 24th of October is Independence Day, so if you're vacationing here at this time, be aware that some places may have reduced opening hours as the nation celebrates.
The handiest major airport, Mpacha Airport, is situated in Katima Mulilo, 180 miles (290 kilometers) to the southeast of Mongu, which is handy to remember when planning your vacation.
