Still excellent in every way .

Our 5th trip to Kaingo over 20+ years and it still appears to be the best of its type. Neighbouring Lion camp vehicles are now more intrusive and the whole area does not seem remote any more. However the accommodation, service and friendliness of all the staff still make it one of our favorites.

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.

Kaingo Camp review

This is a terrific camp. Rooms were very comfortable with a great view over the river.

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.

Incredible Experience

Kaingo Camp is an experience that should not be missed. The staff are excellent. Kudos to Eve, Gerald, Katherine, Simon, Joseph and everyone that works so hard to make this a terrific safari camp. Our guide Shayne was outstanding. He was an excellent tracker, professional and fun to spend time with while at the camp. The game viewing was outstanding.

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.

Exceptional Game Viewing

Situated in the park itself the camp is very close to the game, even with an elephant family passing through camp for lunch. Just minutes into our first drive we found Leopard and they were frequent thereafter. Again the guides and staff were professional and knowledgeable, quite how the guides sometimes spot the animals is amazing.

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

Kaingo Camp 27 - 30 July

I've been to Kaingo before, loved it so much this time returned with my partner - who I think fell in love with it to the extent that she loves it more than she loves me!!!

The rooms are really luxurious and set by the river, each with a private viewing deck on to the river. What better way is there to spend a day after an early morning game drive, than lazing on the seats there watching the world go by - crocs, hippos, kingfishers, eagles etc etc?

The staff all worked tirelessly to ensure we had everything we wanted - and the food was so good I put on more weight than I'd like to admit!

We had Hendrix as our guide - wonderful game sightings including one noisy incident involving three leopards up the same tree!

Would highly recommend this place to anyone thginking of a visit to the South Lunagwa

Our seventh visit need we say more

This is one of our favourite camps in Luangwa valley.

Everybody is always very friendly and helpful. Over the years there have been updates to the rooms but never to the detriment of the ambience.

The game viewing was excellent.

A special mention should be made for the way they worked to ensure the moon eclipse on the beach was a memorable night.

Kaingo Camp review

Wonderful tented chalet after 24 hours travelling and to have our own deck over the river was special.

The camp was run very efficiently and we much enjoyed the pre dinner drinks in the main area with the other guests.

We had a surprise brunch one day on the river bank with a full ‘African ‘ breakfast. A very nice treat.

Kaingo - a touch of luxury

Our fourth visit and it gets better every time! Everything about this camp experience must be at the top end of the scale. We were welcomed as old friends by many members of staff and looked after exceedingly well. Catherine and her team excelled themselves yet again, keeping us well provided with food of an outstanding quality.

Our guide at Kaingo was Yoram, once again. His knowledge is wide-ranging and he picked up on our interest in birds, spotting and identifying many that we hadn't seen, let alone known before. His tracking skills are outstanding - we were so impressed with his ability to locate leopards that seemed totally hidden in deep bush, and lions that were calling softly from a distance. As always, his positioning of the vehicle to get the best light for photography was exemplary.

We traveled in June this year - earlier than ever before. We saw a much greener landscape, with more water in lagoons and channels, but the downside of this was that the game was more dispersed. However we saw different packs of wild dogs - our first sightings ever. Like nearly all the animals they were relaxed and unbothered by our presence.
