Overview

Kafue River Lodge is your reward at the end of your journey into the North-Eastern Kafue. The stretch of the Kafue River where the lodge is located is varied, gentle and favoured by wildlife.

 

The 4 ensuite chalets overlook the river and the sounds of hippo carry clearly across the grounds with the miombo woodland behind camp also playing home to a steady stream of game and birds.

    Game Drive

    Our game drives take place in the Lunga Luswishi, Kafue National Park and Mushingashi Conservancy. The advantage to the game drives is that one can cover a lot of ground whilst searching for those special sightings. We have good road networks around us which allow a far reach for the drives and covers the diversity of vegetation in our area. Of course, sundowners and coffee stops are mandatory and you may just be surprised with a bush breakfast after the drive has finished.
