June 2019 Newsletter

So back in May we had the mini marathon and so June kicked off with the Kaingu 100m sprint.  As Joel (barman) had sat out the mini-marathon we had no idea that he was going to take the honours in the 100m! Anyway, before all that on the way to our super track (i.e. the […]

The Itumbi Community Schools & Crowdfunding

Since 2006 Kaingu Lodge has been extremely active in developing and supporting the Itumbi Community Primary School.

March News

Firstly our sincere apologies for being so late with our March news.  We are writing this at the end of April!  I think subconsciously I wanted to see the end of the rains before we started talking about camp opening and the start of the season and all that.  Why?  Well I am not going […]

Benny’s tale

Here at Kaingu Lodge we are proud of our staff and the way we have been able to expand the number of people that we employ. We firmly believe that the only way that such large protected areas as Kafue National Park can survive is by their existence being justified by the neighbouring local communities […]
