Accommodation in Zambia at KaingU Safari Lodge


KaingU offers idyllic & comfortable guest accommodation nestled amongst trees directly on the Kafue river, Namwala GMA, bordering the Kafue National Park.

Separate from the lodge, Kaingu offers three private and individual campsites for guests who seek to be even closer to nature.

Kaingu is built with minimal impact to the environment and run by the owners in an eco and socially sustainable manner.

KaingU Lodge Main Area

The focal point of the lodge is the thatched central area with a lounge, dining area and bar. Attached to it is a locally sourced redwood deck built over the river and under the forest canopy.

This area provides guests with a beautiful and serene setting for dining, sundowners or just relaxing with a book and has an all-day tea & coffee station. At night a fire is lit in the purpose-built pit on the deck. Solar-lit paths provide easy access between the chalets and the central area. 

A curio shop is next to the main area, and wifi is available in the central public areas.

1 Family house (1x room double, 1x room twin; all en-suite; extra beds available)
3 Tonga Tree Baskets

Set on raised individual private wooden decks, each overlooking the Kafue River, KaingU Safari Lodge comprises 6 double Meru-style tents with en-suite bathrooms, indoor showers and an open-air shower. The “Honeymoon-tent” has an additional outside bath. Every tent is additionally roofed with thatch to provide extra shade and further blend into nature.

Our Finfoot family house consists of 2 bedrooms (one queen, one twin), 2 en-suite bathrooms plus an outside shower and a central living area opening onto a private deck overlooking the river. It’s a perfect spot for a couple with children or a small group of friends.

All accommodation has gauze screen doors and windows and mosquito netting over the beds. The two bedside lights and bathroom lights are solar powered, as are the other lodge facilities. Plugs can be found in the central area of the lodge for charging electronic devices.

Water is heated by individual gas / solar geysers. A flask with filtered drinking water is provided, and filtered water is always available. Bottled water is also available from the bar, but for ecological reasons, we encourage the use of reusable bottles and filtration.
