My partner and I, both residents of Zambia have found a magic place not far from Lusaka, with only a 4 hour drive (literally) you leave the city hustle behind and reach a beautiful remote area, with only the sounds of the many birds, hippo's and lulls of the small water rapids filling your ears.
Everything was perfect from the great hosts and the superb staff behind them, the design of the chalets, the food, the welcome night fire before you enjoyed your dinners and most of all, there was an activity that fit your needs perfectly, for us, we wanted nothing more than to just drift down the river enjoying a few cold beers whilst watching nature float on by. After our 3 course dinner meal we ended our evenings in the huge outside bath tub (only in chalet 4), nothing better than ending your day in a hot bath with the moon light filtering down from the tree tops above you!
Kaingu, we will see you again soon!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kaingu Lodge is situated on the river forming the boundary of the Kafue National Park. Access to the lodge is either through the park and then by boat transfer or by direct road transfer through the Game Management Area. Activities include game drives (in the park and the GMA), walks, canoeing and boating. Cultural visits and school visits can also be arranged. Accommodation comprises luxury tents with indoor and outdoor showers! Owner managed and flexible, Kaingu also welcomes families and can arrange childrens activities as well as free child minders to allow parents a rest. The lodge provides a true wilderness experience that lures repeat guests back time and time again. The completion of the 'spinal road' through the top end of the park means that access to us is now easier than ever and we are now within reach for a fabulous weekend trip. ... more less
