Main description of Kaingu Lodge

KaingU is open from March until the beginning of January and comprises four 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. 

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.

The four tents comprise custom designed meru style tents which have stone built bathrooms each also with an external shower under the stars. Each tent has a thatched roof to reduce the heat and each one also has a deck with easy chairs and a small hammock. Every tent is located with great views of the stunning river.

The family house

For families or two couples the house "Finfoot" is perfect. A large deck to socialise on with a BBQ and simple gas stove makes the house even more private. Each Bedroom has an en-suit bathroom.
