Idyllically situated in the middle of the great Zambezi River about 1.5 hours from Livingstone and the mighty Victoria Falls. Brett will collect you in one of his mid 1980s Landcruizers , filled with Mosi beer, water and other supplies plus a few other passengers. His first question " you want to sit on the back?" Rather squeeze into the front for an enjoyable drive. Don't hire a car or taxi as the sandy road is only navigable by 4x4.
Transport to the Island from the river bank can only be done on a Mokorro, so pile in and experience Africa.
Superb cooking by Mama Alice ( baby Alice is another story.....ask Brett), this tranquil haven is the place to go and relax, canoe around, do sunset trips, if you want action, Tiger fishing is an option, or tour the local villages.
The crocs and hippos are close and not always visible but can be heard. Fish eagles and a host of other birds are plentiful.
You may bump into Evelyn Roe, botanist and author extraordinaire , one of the few other residents of Bovu.
So, if you're in Livingstone and surrounds, a few days at Jungle Junction should be on your schedule and at US$60 per day per couple it's got to be the best value around.
