Set in an area of pristine wilderness, KaingU Safari Lodge offers a magnificent safari experience in the heart of the African bush. The owner-run lodge, with its comfortable accommodation perfectly in balance with the surroundings, is something unexpected in this remote area.
The lodge is situated in the Namwala Game Management Area (GMA) on a spectacular stretch of the Kafue River, approximately 400 kilometers north of the majestic Victoria Falls. The Kafue National Park, just opposite the lodge and only a 10 minute boat trip away, offers magnificent game that you can enjoy viewing from the comfortable open game drive vehicles. The Kafue River, with all its myriad of channels, rapids and islands lends itself to a range of exciting river based activities which include boat cruises, fishing, birding, canoeing and river trails.
The lodge was built with a lot of patience, good taste and an extraordinary sense for detail. The personal attention to each and every guest makes you feel instantly at home. KaingU offers a unique stay for traveljers wishing to get closer to the unspoiled wilderness of the 'real' Africa, experience the warm and welcoming people of Zambia and enjoy wildlife and scenery undisturbed.
Set on raised individual private wooden decks, each overlooking the Kafue River, KaingU Safari Lodge comprises 6 double Meru-style tents with en-suite bathrooms, indoor showers and an open-air shower. The Honeymoon Tent has an additional outside bath. Every tent is additionally roofed with thatch to provide additional cooling and further blend into nature.
The Finfoot family house consists of 2 bedrooms (one queen, one twin), 2 en-suite bathrooms plus outside shower and a central living area opening onto a private deck overlooking the river. It's a perfect spot for a couple with children, or a small group of friends.
