KaingU Safari Lodge – Family Destination
Many activities can be done with the whole family but we also offer exclusive activities for children and youngsters.
On our nature walks the whole family can explore the untamed wilderness around us and experience the vastness of Zambia. Our specialist guides will explain how to read the spoor of animals, identify insects and birds and explain which plants are useful for survival in the bush.
Boat cruises on our magnificent part of the Kafue River are a pleasure for every age with the opportunity for fishing and island exploration. In the hotter months we visit our natural swimming pool in the rapids near camp and refreshment can be found safely in the natural pools.
Kids and youngsters can get involved with our blacksmith making spears and arrowheads in his traditional iron forge. They can learn how to make a rope of a tree-fibre and when bows and arrows are completed practice their shooting skills by protecting our straw antelopes from ‘poachers’.
Our chefs are delighted to have hands on assistance in baking fresh ‘hippo-rolls’ or making dough for stick bread baked around the fire pit in the evening. Listening and sharing stories around the camp-fire lets everyone forget the absence of electrical gadgets and when it gets too late for the youngest an evening child care will be arranged.
Trips to our local school can be arranged where children can meet their counterparts and share experiences in the classroom and the playground.
Children’s Activities include:
tracking, spoor identification, bow & arrow making, archery, stargazing, fishing, entomology, boating, bread making, African storytelling & drumming, rope making and bush skills, excursions to the local school.
All activities have a focus on conservation and sustainable use of our resources.
Families find comfortable accommodation in our Finfoot Family House and extra beds can be added to our Tented Chalets.
