About this property
Historically the south of Kafue has been considered the poor relation of the north, but in the last few years KaingU Lodge has gradually started to change opinions on this. This owner-run lodge is set in a stunning location next to the Kafue River, and offers a variety of activities, making the most of the natural surroundings. KaingU Lodge has six large, green Meru-style tents, and a separate four-bed house, known as ‘Finfoot’. Slightly downstream from the lodge are three stunning private campsites all with their own ablutions. Built as much as possible with local materials, the lodge has been designed to blend into the natural surroundings. The tents are raised on private wooden decks and have thatched roofs, which help to keep the rooms cooler during the hotter months. Two of the rooms have double beds, while the other four are twins, all with mosquito netting overhead. The bedside lights are solar-powered, as are the bathroom lights. Flasks with filtered drinking water are provided in the room - the lodge has bottled water available at the bar, but encourages the use of re-fillable bottles. Charging points for your electronic devices can be found in the main area of the lodge. All of the bedrooms at Kaingu have en-suite bathrooms, each with indoor showers and either an outdoor shower or bath. The bathrooms are stylishly built in stone, with well thought-out details added, such as green bottles cleverly set into the walls to create artistic lighting effects. Each tent has wood and gauze doors leading out to a large veranda, with chairs and a hammock, that overlooks the Kafue River. Kaingu’s family house, ‘Finfoot’, is a much more solid construction than the tents, with two en-suite bedrooms, one queen and one twin. The rooms are connected by a central lounge area, which has doors leading onto a private deck overlooking the river. It’s ideal for small families, or a group of friends, to have a bit more privacy from the rest of the camp. The main area to Kaingu Lodge is a thatched boma, incorporating the lounge, dining area and bar. Wi-Fi is available in this central area, and there’s a small curio shop here as well. You’ll find the afore-mentioned charging sockets here, and more solar-powered lighting - not only has KaingU been built making the most of the local surroundings and materials, but the entire lodge is powered by solar energy. A large redwood deck stretches out from the seating area over the river, shaded by the surrounding forest, with a fire-pit built into the deck for evening campfires. It’s a great place for sundowners, or just to relax after dinner and watch any wildlife that wanders through the camp. As an owner-run property, the team behind KaingU have a passion for making your stay as relaxed and bespoke and flexible as possible.
