Comments, Rules and Notes

CommentsThe camp is on the north bank of the river, opposite the Kafue National Park, in a game management area to the east of the confluence of the Kafue and Lunga rivers.Select small groups and individuals have the opportunity to stay in catered comfort in four en-suite chalets, or camp in the well-appointed campsite, nestled under splendid trees on the river bank. A suitably equipped self-catering kitchen is also available for clients’ use, both at the lodge and campsite. Guests can enjoy organised activities, or simply relax on the deck out over the river next to the thatched ‘chitenge’. A couple of hours spent on the viewing deck, close to a waterhole behind camp, allows clients to get up close and personal with the wildlife.Complete freedom captures the spirit of the Lunga area…as there is nothing closer to paradise than waking up in the pre-dawn to hear the clink of the kettle as coffee is being prepared and be greeted by the grunt of the hippo or the plethora of bird-song.
