Experience the beauty of Zambia and stay at KaingU Safari Lodge
Set in an area of pristine wilderness, KaingU Safari Lodge offers a magnificent safari experience in the heart of the African bush. The owner-run lodge, with its comfortable accommodation perfectly in balance with the surroundings, is something unexpected in this remote area. The lodge was built with a lot of patience, good taste and an extraordinary sense for detail. Our personal attention to each and every guest makes you feel instantly at home. KaingU offers a unique stay for travelers wishing to get closer to the unspoiled wilderness of the ‘real’ Africa, experience the warm and welcoming people of Zambia and enjoy wildlife and scenery undisturbed.
The Kafue is one of the last true wilderness areas. Covering 22,440km², its unmatched variety of species and being able to enjoy the wildlife almost on your own, makes this park one of the last secrets of Africa. This is a place to unwind, enjoy our chefs’ cuisine and be spoiled with an abundance of activities or, if you prefer, just relax and feel the heartbeat of Africa.
Our Lodge is situated in the Namwala Game Management Area (GMA) on a spectacular and remote stretch of the Kafue River, approximately 400 kilometers north of the majestic Victoria Falls. The Kafue National Park, just opposite the lodge and only a 10 minute boat trip away, offers magnificent game that you can enjoy viewing from our comfortable open game drive vehicles. The Kafue River, with all its myriad of channels, rapids and islands lends itself to a range of exciting river based activities which include boat cruises, fishing, birding, canoeing and river trails.From the top of one of the large granite boulders in the Namwala GMA you will get a 360° view over nothing but nature! A visit to the KaingU Trust School can be organised. Situated on a plateau 1030 meters above sea level, KaingU enjoys a year round moderate climate (coldest in July, hottest in October).
A short video interview with Benny. Trying to show how tourism creates employment and opportunities for those living around protected areas and how it brings economic benefits - which ultimately will be the decider in whether these areas exist or not. But also a simple story of how someone who is smart and committed can carve out a career in tourism in Zambia and go from being a timber cutter in the bush to being a front-of-house superstar!
