Ngoma Airstrip (FLNA), Kafue National Park, Zambia. By Bashir Ismail.
Ngoma, Zambia is the only settlement in the south of Kafue National Park.[ one of the largest park in Africa ] It is a short way south of Itezhi-Tezhi Dam. Ngoma is the home of the head warden for the southern half of the park, and for around 200 game wardens and their families employed by ZAWA (Zambian Wildlife Authority). There is a small information centre about the local wildlife,
Ngoma is frequented by a large herd of impala, as well as many bushbuck and frequently elephants. There are groups of vervet monkeys living in the trees above the village and leopards sometimes walk through the village at night.
Close by, there are many other species of animal, including puku, reedbuck, waterbuck, sable and roan antelope, eland, hartebeest, wildebeest, kudu, zebra, warthog, lion, serval, wild cat, hyena, jackal and, at night, springhare and porcupine. Birdlife in the village is impressive, with fish eagles and bateleurs flying over frequently, and many species of kingfisher and hornbill living around the local river.
The river that flows past Ngoma is the Nkala. In the dry season it has a well defined course and can dry up completely, but in the wet season it spreads out over the surrounding plains. Crocodiles live in the river, although it doesn't get deep enough for hippos. Hippos can be found in Lake Itezhi-Tezhi though.
In the local area there are three hills. They are over 1100m above sea level, but the plains around Ngoma are at around 1000m so they are not realistically very high. From Ngoma it is possible to see and walk to Nakalombwe Hill, and behind Ngoma across the river is Nkala Hill. A little way off there is a hill known as the Screaming Chicken Hill. It is possible that this name comes from a tribal ritual, although this is just speculation.
Tourists usually fly from Livingstone or Lusaka to Ngoma on safaris [ usually Hunting ].
The FSX one was not convincing enough! I have tried to make it close to realistic as possible using Airport Design Editor v1.50 and the objects that are available for use from FSX. Hope this will make your stop-over more enjoyable!
