Kafunta River Lodge
Opened in 1998, Kafunta River Lodge is about 9km from the main road between Mfuwe Airport and the bridge. It stands beside the river and was built from scratch by a team including Ron and Anke Cowan, who now own and run the camp. Its central dining/bar area under a huge thatched roof is very impressive – built around a wild mango tree and quite grand. Half is a bar-lounge, the other is for dining, and both sides overlook the river beyond a floodplain. There's lots of space and beside the bar is a small swimming pool, and nearby is a natural hot tub supplied by water from the local hot spring.
