Central to the lodge is the spacious lounge and dining area that has been thatched in a traditional African style. A tall old semi-evergreen wild mango tree in the centre gives shade on sunny days. Here is a welcoming camp fire which is lit each evening as the sun goes down and guests and guides meet around the fire to share the latest stories of wildlife encounters or, simply to listen to the sounds of the bush. The wooden deck above the waterhole provides our guests with undisturbed views over the plain.
Kafunta River Lodge is a classic Zambia safari lodge and combines all the essentials for a great safari. Here you will find the rest and peace you need after an exciting day on safari in combination with personalised service and a warm welcome by the team, attention to detail and relaxed atmosphere.
At Kafunta River Lodge, each of the luxury private chalets and the main lounge and dining area overlook the game rich flood plain. Beyond the plain is the Luangwa River and one of the best game viewing areas of the magical South Luangwa National Park, the premier park in Zambia and one of the best national parks in all of Africa.
The eight private safari chalets have been built on raised wooden platforms and have thatched roofs. They are tastefully decorated with African style and charm. All were refurbished in 2014 to a high standard. Additionally, there are two luxury suites which feature a private deck, an upstairs viewing veranda and a luxurious bathroom.
