KaingU Safari Lodge

KaingU Safari Lodge lies in the southern part of the Kafue National Park on the banks of the Kafue River. The river here is wide and picturesque, split into small islands with large granite boulders and sandy shores where activities often stop for a morning coffee or afternoon sundowner.

There are just four lovely tented chalets and one family chalet, all overlooking the river. Each is set on a wooden floor with a thatch roof and has double or twin beds with mosquito net, and an en suite bathroom with a shower, loo and basin. Three of the chalets have outdoor showers whilst one has an outdoor bathtub, too! At the front of each is a balcony with a hammock chair, ideal for lounging in during the heat of the day and just enjoying the tranquillity of the river. The family chalet has two en suite bedrooms and a lounge leading onto a large balcony, accommodating a family of up to five.

The main lounge and bar lead onto a beautiful deck area filled with comfy seats overlooking the water. The staff are charming here, and it is a very well managed lodge, offering high standards of service and delightful meals. You can be as active as you wish here, choosing from river cruises, fishing trips, canoeing, walks, game drives and visits to the local village school which is supported by KaingU.

The river ensures that there is a wide array of activities available throughout the day, including game drives, sundowner walks, river cruises, fishing and specialist birding excursions. This environmentally friendly lodge uses natural materials to blend in as unobtrusively as possible with its pristine surroundings, guaranteeing visitors an experience of authentic Africa.
