The lodge blends privacy from the hustle of town with easy access to the Victoria Falls and under the caring and guiding hands of Zambian born owners Gail and Doug.

From Chundukwa River Ldoge, you be picked up and transfered to Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp located in the southern part of the Kaufe. Nanzhila is the closest true safari destination in Zambia to the Victoria Falls and enjoys nearly 3000 sqkm of the Kafue National Park to itself. An incredible variety of wildlife and birding species as well as a quite magnificent location overlooking the dambo make Nanzhila one of the most memorable safari camps in Zambia.
3 nights at Kaingu Safari Lodge
After a hearty breakfast, we will leave Nanzhila Plains and head out through the Ngoma Forest towards Lake Itezhi-tezhi (there is also the option of stopping to visit the Elephant Orphanage) before arriving at the ITT shoreline. Stopping at an appropriate shady spot, we will enjoy a picnic lunch watching the antics of the wildlife around the lake before meeting the team from Kaingu. Kaingu is magnificently situated in the riparian woodland on the banks of the Kafue River with stunning views. African finfoot, hippo and a wide variety of birdlife are on constant display and river based boat cruises and canoeing is a must on this portion of the Kafue River. Kaingu also conducts game drives in a stunning section of the Kafue National Park.
