November. Probably one of my favourite months in the bush here. The temperatures drop with the onset of the rains. Everything turns green almost overnight after the parched heat gives way to clouds and sun. The skies are washed clear of the dust and smoke and everything takes on a new lease of life. Plants […]

Well October is the hottest month in Zambia and this year we were not “disappointed”. The temperatures in the afternoons were high 30’s. Fortunately we are not in the deeper valleys like S. Luangwa or Lower Zambezi (or Livingstone) so the evenings are still generally a pleasant temperature. So with the heat we decided to […]
Dr Sven Vrdoljak from Wildtracks who with his brother Pete has helped us out massively with regards to all things angling very kindly wrote this about angling here at Kaingu: In terms of fish diversity, the Kafue system has a total of 68 indigenous species (according to a report by Biodiversity Foundation by Africa). Obviously […]
We have been doing a lot of staff biographies and profiles, and I asked our oldest staff member to write a bit about himself.

The Itumbi Community School; which was built through funding organised by lodge guests and with lodge involvement – received a nice bonus yesterday! Allyson a guest and friend returned here with $1500 that she raised for the school. This will go towards much needed text books which the school badly needs.

June has been a phenomenal month for Kaingu Lodge. The sightings have been amazing, with elephants regularly crossing to the islands in front of the lodge and even lions in camp! Guests were also lucky to see Pel’s fishing owl twice. We also saw two otters cavorting in the river downstream of one of our […]
