"What a wonderfull stay!"
The food is very good. My favourite is the lunch, outstanding quality.
The gamedrives were excellent. Thank you Sandy. Lots of game (lions and leopards). And with a lot of interaction between the animals.

"Great view of Luangwa River and Wildlife"
Our guide, Yorum, was so devoted to his love of the bush, wildlife, and a true steward of the park in general. He took us to the carmine bee eater hide the first day, which included a short canoe paddle out to the hide. His knowledge of the birds and wildlife we encountered was very helpful as we wanted to know the names of the birds and animals we weren't sure of.
The camp staff was also delightful and always helpful, whether you needed something cold to drink, laundry done, or just wanted to hear what their life here was like. We learned the produce was grown by the camp near Lusaka, so the food was very fresh and the meals were always delicious and healthy and the chef came up with remarkable culinary fare every day.
We enjoyed the evening safaris, which I had never done, and we saw many of the smaller wildlife you don't see during the day, ie. porcupines, elephant shrews, mongoose, badgers, etc.
We had 4 wonderful nights at this camp and enjoyed this experience." See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia
"Excellent camp and great safaris"
We visited the hippo hide and bee eater hide, and had a walking safari (with close encounter with a small elephant herd which ignored us) all of which were excellent We had excellent day and night drives: highlights - leopards with kills and drinking at pond; leopard and cub; lions with cubs; hyenas feasting on dead hippo; numerous elephants with young; large lion prides were elusive, unfortunately, due to the activities of a small band of males, except for one distant evening sighting."

"Still excellent in every way ."
The food is exceptional and Catherine acts as a superb hostess as well as chef.
Walking is possible but no longer top of the agenda. Most guests come for the photographic opportunities and the excellent hides.
Guiding was variable. At its best superb. Newcomer to the guiding team ,Shane , made an excellent impression." See all these reviews: 15n in Zambia
"Kaingo Camp review"
The food was really good and the staff, overseen by Eve, looked after us extremely well. The drives were excellent with our guide Yorum. Like Tafika the night drives were wonderful. We saw a porcupine, honey badgers, civets, and genets. And also some hunting lionesses walking around the truck, while we were trying to photograph a rare owlet."

The facilities are lovely. Each room is decorated with care and all amenities are available that one could need. The outdoor tubs are a wonderful addition to the rooms. And each chalet has it's own deck out by the river which provides a wonderful area that is private to spend time at during the day. The main gathering area is warm and the food is very tasty.
Would highly recommend this camp for anyone wanting a wonderful safari camp experience." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
"Exceptional Game Viewing"
Accommodation was very comfortable and each chalet has it's own private viewing gallery over the river. Food was again very good with all dietary requirements catered for.
Although most guests were frequent return visitors we were still welcomed as newbies, and will certainly be back ourselves one day" See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia
