This is my second trip to KaingU — I loved it so much the first time, I had to come back again. This time, I brought my family and we ALL had a wonderful time. The staff is incredibly attentive and on point. Kaley, our guide, was exceptional in suggesting activities that the whole family (including the 14 year old) would enjoy. The food is innovative and delicious — Luzy’s pumpkin pie was out of this world! The tents are clean, well-appointed and I personally love falling asleep to the sounds of the river. It’s sublime.
What a little piece of paradise. A lovely greeting awaited my daughter and I after our drive from Lusaka. The location, accommodation, food and attention were all first rate and our guide John D, knowledgable and fun. Would love to be sitting looking at that view right now.
We had 3 lovely nights at Kaingu Lodge in Zambia. The staff, hosts, food and guides were terrific. Very comfortable luxury cabin on the river. Highlights were the walks in the forest with the guide and armed park ranger, evening motor boat rides for the sunsets on the spectacular Kafue River, and kayaking on the River together with a careful guide, with the challenges of avoiding rather ominous hippos standing watch.
