On the banks of the mighty Zambezi River is where you can find a lovely Chongwe Safaris property, the Kasaka River Lodge – this 20 bed luxury tented camp offers guests everything that they could be looking for within the African bush. Set within the Chiawa Game Management area, this lodge is ideally situated, a mere 4 kilometres from the Lower Zambezi National Park. It is also very interesting to note that this is the only location along the 2700 km river, that one finds a National Park on both sides of the river.
This entry level lodge offers everything that an intrepid traveller could ever need; the 8 Classic tents are simple, uncluttered and come with en-suite bathrooms whilst the private two bedroom Hippo Pod is ideal for familes with private pool, dining and activities. The main lodge has ample seating space for you to relax after a long day in the bush, there is a pool to escape the summer heat and there is a deck area which allows guests to sit out and watch mother nature go about her business.
There is much to keep everyone entertained – from game drives in the Lower Zambezi National park, canoe safaris and walking safaris. The lodge also caters for anglers who wish to hook one of the rivers many fish- beginners and serious anglers alike. Community visits can also be arranged, so guests can experience the rich cultural heritage of this amazing area.
The lodge is open in the dry season between April to November, as the lodge becomes inaccessible once the rains fall.
