Anti poaching

Anti poaching

Poaching is still one of the Kafue NP’s major challenges. Its enormous size, limited accessibility and little funding are the stumbling blocks. At the beginning of the season all lodge operators of the area met to discuss the way forward. With ‘Game Rangers International’ as the implementing body carrying out the aims of the ‘Kafue Conservation Society’ capable organisations have formed and every operator has agreed to raise funds by an additional bednight levy of 5USD. This levy supports directly the work of two specialist anti-poaching teams so guests can be assured of direct link between their stay and poaching reduction.

New Spots located – KaingU Bushcamp

New Spots located – KaingU Bushcamp

Wonderful spots have been located in the newly accessible area of the Kafue National Park and are just too inviting to not stay. KaingU has selected one of these spots to build a seasonal Bushcamp and from 2013 travelers are more than welcome to be our first guests staying overnight inside the National Park.

Canoeing on the KAFUE, Zambia

A dream has come true. It has taken two years of exploring all the water channels, rocks and rapids of over 50km of the Kafue River which are not accessible by conventional boats, planning routes and trails with respect to scenery, water level changes over the season and even hippo family movements.

KaingU guests can now enjoy an unforgettable experience on the Kafue River. Specialist guides will take you through truly magnificent areas that one can only reach by inflatable canoes.

Spinal Road – Access to the Kafue National Park, Zambia

Spinal Road – Access to the Kafue National Park, Zambia

The idea of reconstructing the Spinal road was to open up a long tourist route all the way from Livingstone to the copper-belt. Expanding the accessibility of the Kafue National Park is vital to its existence and development, to manage it and to protect it.

As the middle section of this great road was completed at the beginning of 2013, KaingU Lodge is now in the unique position to expand its activities to an area of the Kafue National Park that for many years has been completely inaccessible.
