This serene spot is just 20 minutes outside Kitwe off the Kalulushi Road in Zambia’s Copperbelt province. I was happy to learn that the Mindolo Dam can be found using my maps app, but I initially got lost, as I took the directions heading toward Chingola. I was back on track after calling the Mindolo Dam team, who guided me back towards the Kalulushi direction.
Mindolo Dam is such a versatile place as it has camping facilities, a motor cross area, braii spots and manicured lawns that can be used for different kinds of events. However, the highlight of Mindolo facility is definitely the Dam, which gives visitors access to fishing, canoeing and boating opportunities. Mindolo also has a pool and there is a small kiosk on site, but I recommend you carry your own food/drinks as the options were limited at the time of my visit. At the time of my visit, there was an entrance fee of K50 for non members to get access to the premises but, I recommend you confirm the pricing for entrance and all activities with the Mindolo Dam team prior to booking / going there.
