This small family-run lodge on the banks of the Kafue River is totally secluded and distant from any other lodges, making it a private and uncommercial wildlife experience.
With a maximum of only 12 guests the focus is on personal service, flexibility and giving guests the opportunity to enjoy the diverse range of activities available. Some of the activities you can get up to here are game viewing from an open safari vehicle, on foot or by boat; visiting a natural hot spring, fishing, or simply enjoying a sundowner at a view point above the lodge with its views over the National Park. Otherwise, stay at the camp and you're sure to get a visit from the local wildlife, from elephants wandering through the camp to lions and leopards catching their prey in the lodge grounds.
Chalets are luxurious, private, being individually situated, and all have river views. The African-Colonial décor is complimented by 100% percale cotton linen and Rhodesian Teak furniture, with beds that have been quoted as “the most comfortable in Africa”. Ceiling fans keep the rooms cool in the heat and nets keep mosquitoes off.
The Kafue River is home to large pods of hippos and it is the source of life for the area, drawing animals to its banks. Game viewing by boat is therefore spectacular and enjoying a drink as the sunsets is a tranquil experience.
Brunches are enjoyed on the deck which extends over the river, whilst dinner is served around a fire. In the unusual case where weather calls for inside dining our restaurant is obliging which also portrays the African-Colonial theme of the lodge.
