I am lucky enough to have been to some great places....Kaingu is up there with the best.
Venue is truly stunning. The eating area over the edge of the Kafue is lovely. The food is uniformly very very good. The staff or great, helpful considerate. Fishing guides were also excellent - had excellent fishing even though in Winter. No phones but there is wifi.
All done as ecologically well as is possible. Kafue park is very big, next time will get into there more. Saw two prides of lions as we left. Rods not bad - by Zambian standards anyway.
- 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
