Get to Otter Bay Lodge by car or boat
The lodge is only about 100 kilometres from Lusaka's Kafue roundabout. The last six kilometres is on a dirt road that branches off the tar road leading to Kafue Gorge Power Station just before the gate to the ZESCO barrier. The recommended mode of transport is a 4×4 vehicle. Alternatively, the lodge can be accessed by boat from the Kafue River Cliff and this takes about 20 minutes by speed-boat. Alternatively there are usually speed boats available for hire where the Kafue Queen sets off from, near the Kafue Bridge.
Unlike many camps and lodges in Zambia which go 'off season' from November to March during the rainy season, Otter Bay Lodge is accessible and open all year round, offering green season discounted rates. Although it is hot during this green season, the vegetation is lush and bird watching is excellent.
