Few months ago, My bestfriend and I wrote down our travel bucket list and decided that on the 24th of August we will leave everything behind and go on a girls only trip.samfya beach was the first to tick off the list .
As they say,one of the most astounding and exhilarating trips that you will take in your life is a trip with your best friend. Traveling brings an entirely new wonder into your life; you journey through various cultures, new places, strange faces, and distinct tastes. It’s true what they say: it matters who you take those journeys with.
Vacation full of unforgettable experiences, amazing places and so many great memories. I’ll probably need the whole remaining four months to write about even a small part of what we’ve seen and done, but for now – here is a short overview and a few of my favorite pictures of some of the fun, crazy and unforgettable things we did this summer.
If you’re coming, stay here…
Those looking for quality amenities, convenience, and a touch of luxury will find everything they need at Chita lodge samfya beach . The lodge is strategically located opposite the beach, with a restaurant, bar and a pool .The lodge sits just outside of the lake bangweulu, making it an excellent launching point for exploring the beach
Two kinds of rooms are offered ;
executive and standards room which are k1500 and k850 per night respectively.
FOOD AND DRINKS
Food and drinks are extremely cheap.
A plate of Food ranges from k50-k100,
wines are k25 per glass,
and carbonated drinks are k10 .
Breakfast was included in the accommodation package and honestly i didnt enjoy the food served at chita lodge.
ACTIVIES AT SAMFYA BEACH
Our first act upon arrival at samfya Beach was to relax ,visit the lake and just take a few drinks because of the exhausting journey. Below are the activities we did while in samfya
PICNIC ON THE BEACH
Make sure you get on a boat…
Chita lodge does not have speed boats at the moment so we had to go to samfya marine beach lodge.This activity costs k100 per person (s boat occupies six) and if you want to hire the whole boat that would cost you k500
BRAII BY THE BEACH SIDE
I was craving Fresh fresh from the time I step into samfya..and finally I had well roasted fish on day three.fish ranges from k30-k60 depending on the size
SWIMING IN THE BEACH AND THE LODGE POOL
Don’t expect an all-inclusive vacation…
Those seeking an all-inclusive experience with a “stay on the resort” mindset may want to look elsewhere.
These are the few activities we did while in samfya..apparently we where voted the most active visitors at Chita lodge by the staff,lol.
Take time to travel because travel takes on a deeper meaning when shared with someone who feels exactly the same way you do about seeing the world. After all, there’s a reason why we call them our BEST friend. The best adventures must be taken with only the best people in our life.
Fortunately, there’s this girl I can always travel with and have fun.I call her my best friend
Guess our next vacation spot??
