Spoil yourself with a romantic, off-the-beaten-track safari in an unspoiled wilderness. Start your day with a delectable breakfast before heading out to explore the African bush. You don’t need to venture far to view wildlife – they come to you at Kaingu Safari Lodge. Relax on the deck and observe game drinking on the riverbank. Look out for leopard, also seen here regularly.

Set in an area of pristine wilderness, KaingU Lodge offers a magnificent game and safari experience in the heart of the African bush. The lodge is environmentally-friendly, with the architecture of the entire camp and associated buildings designed to blend in and harmonise with the surroundings. Maximum use has been made of existing trees, rocky outcrops and topographical features in its layout and construction, thereby minimising the impact on the original look and feel of the area. The focal point of the lodge is the thatched central area with lounge, dining room and bar overlooking the river. Situated on a high plateau, KaingU enjoys an all-year-round moderate climate and is accessible in all seasons with good road and air access.

Perhaps the greatest feature of the lodge is the absolutely unique river landscape where the lodge is located. It is the only lodge on this unique stretch of river where the Kafue spreads out into a myriad of rocky channels and island before rejoining to flow into the lake. Game drives are usually done in the National Park (a ten minute boat ride away), while boating, canoeing, walks and even lounging in rock pools is also all on offer!

KaingU is open from March until the beginning of January and comprises six tented chalets and a family house, each en-suite, under thatch and with a private deck overlooking the river. In walking distance to the lodge are two grassy private campsites by the rapids, each with its own facilities.  With 16 beds we pride ourselves on our totally flexible and intimate safaris where you do what you want to do.  Our guiding team boats and vehicles are enough that we can tailor ever guest's stay to be a unique experience.  

The Kafue River, with all its myriad of channels, rapids and islands lends itself to a range of exciting river based activities (boat cruises, fishing, birding, canoeing). This is a place to unwind, enjoy outstanding meals and be spoiled with an abundance of activities or, if you prefer, just relax and feel the heartbeat of Africa. 

Kaingu Safari Lodge Deck

Lying opposite the Kafue National Park is Kaingu Safari Lodge, located on the banks of the Kafue River in the centre of the Namwala Game Management Area. Kaingu is an ideal Zambia holiday destination for travelers in search of the ultimate African bush experience.
Zambia safari packages are varied, depending on the number of groups and specifications. Guests have a choice of four double Meru-style tents or the two-bedroom Family House. The Meru-style tents overlook the Kafue River, each with en-suite bathrooms and showers. The two-bedrooms in the Family House are both en-suite and the central living area leads out onto a private viewing deck overlooking the River. The focal point of Kaingu Safari Lodge is a thatched central boma which has a lounge, bar and dining area. Here you can sit back and unwind with friendly staff who are eager to tend to your needs.
Kaingu is situated on a magnificent and secluded stretch of the Kafue River, approximately 400km north of the majestic Victoria Falls. The Kafue National Park, only a 10minute boat trip away, is home to a variety of wildlife species which you can enjoy viewing in the comfort of the open-vehicle game drives. With all its myriad of channels, rapids and islands, Kafue River lends itself to different kinds of water-based activities which include canoeing, fishing, river trails and boat cruises.
The density of animals of some areas of South Luangwa are not generally on offer at Kafue, but its unparalleled variety of species and that you can enjoy the wildlife almost on your own makes Kafue one of the last secrets of Africa.
