You don't have to go anywhere to experience the wildlife of the lower Zambezi. Elephants, baboons, monkeys, warthogs, hippo, bushbaby all within a meter or two of our tent at various times. They all come up to graze or play on the lawn or drink from the pool. I had never seen a leopard in the wild. Collins made it... More

The Kasaka River Lodge is heaven on Earth. Everything is just superb: the kind stuff, the divine food, the variety of activities :walking safari, jeep day and night safari, speed boat safari on the Zambezi, kayaking, fishing. Our guide was Jacob, his knowledge and his kindness were limitless. We stayed in the Hippo Pod, a lodge on the edge of... More

Superb staff who looked after my 89 Year old mother after she had had a fall. Dottie was fantastic. Far beyond the call of duty. Good food, good fishing and great game viewing. Thanks to all for a great week.

Immediately on arrival we were blown away by everything we experienced at Kasaka River Lodge, including the plane ride to get there, and the landing strip seemingly in the middle of nowhere!. The setting by the vast Zambezi River, the management and staff, the food (oh the food!) and the variety of activities on offer. We couldn't fault any of... More

Above all else, the staff is amazing! The property is absolutely gorgeous and enjoyed the Hippo that visited every night! I can't think of one negative about Kasaka. Mwaka and Merle were fantastic hosts!

We had a great trip to Zambia, which started at Kasaka, August,. The staff was wonderful, the elephants walking around camp was great to see. Our guide Jacob was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed his company. Fishing on the river was a lot of fun, I did not catch anything but enjoyed the trip. Lots of new animals to see... More

From the moment we got off the plane until we set foot on it again, our stay was just perfect. The staff made sure that we felt welcome, taking care of everything, making sure that we had everything we needed. After a warm welcome by the managers and a short briefing about how the camp works (it is not fenced... More

We had a fantastic 4night stay in the Hippo Pod....a delightful place! The accommodation was immaculate! The food delicious! The service first class (thanks to Clive and the team). Our guides, Morrat (for game drives) and Justin (for fishing) were exceptionally knowledgeable and very friendly. We made the most of the water activities having the Zambezi on the doorstep, with...

This was the most disappointing of our five camps. It may be a contrast against the Norman Carr camps we were at first, and the amazing ones to follow. If we arrived here first we would probably have loved it. It just seemed a bit dusty and faded and silly little things niggled. Removing our duvets so the children froze... More

We had a wonderful three days at Kasaka River Lodge in July, before travelling on to South Luangwa. The whole three days were perfect, from the food, to the guides, to the room and of course the hosts. Starting with the guides, our game drives were with Collins, who had an encyclopaedic knowledge of every single creature we could see... More
