Pros

  • Africa untouched in all its glory
  • The owners have a true commitment to environmental and community development

Cons

  • Road transfers from Lusaka take 5–6 hours but a charter flight to the nearby airstrip is a worthwhile alternative

Fodor's Review

KaingU Safari Lodge is a small camp comprised of a family house with two bedrooms and four classic en-suite safari tents. The tents are raised on rosewood decks to provide ideal views over the myriad channels and islands formed by the Kafue River. It's also very remote—situated in the southern reaches of the Kafue National Park. This combination of intimacy and seclusion lends an undeniable flavor of mystery and discovery to your stay. The thatched boma has a lounge, bar, and dining room, where the hosted dinner conversations cover all topics. Big game is not an everyday occurrence, but the lodge's guiding team is particularly fine-tuned to the many different wildlife stories constantly unfolding in the bush. Two activities are included every day, and the selection ranges from chilled-out river safaris to serious birding excursions. The natural splendor of deepest Zambia takes precedence—at this camp even the swimming pool is a wholly natural Jacuzzi in the rapids of the Kafue! From each nightly rate, $10 is paid into a registered Community and Conservation Trust.
