Boasting rich knowledge of the South Luangwa Valley thanks to Kafunta safaris calling it home for decades, the hospitable hands behind Kafunta River Lodge are genuine masters of their industry. Guests encounter true Zambian flavours throughout their time there from authentic game viewing experiences to being treated like royalty in a lodge that is luxuriously remote.
Overlooking the riverbed, guests are treated to sights of wildlife wandering beside the Luangwa River from the convenience of the lodge’s spacious terrace. Expect to see hippo, elephant, buffalo, and even an elusive leopard if you’re lucky. The viewing deck is arguably the best spot at the lodge, with the natural hot tub/infinity pool not far behind. Game drives involve sundowners in the bush that turn into night drives as day morphs to dusk, with the possibility of spotting nocturnal animals around every tree. Zambia’a famous walking safaris shouldn’t be missed!
Eight private chalets are all comfortably equipped and accented with a true African style. There are also two additional suites, highly sought-after by guests as they boast their very own upstairs viewing veranda, private deck, and a bathroom that oozes luxury.
