Overview of Kafue River Lodge

The Kafue River Lodge promises an authentic safari sojourn with thrilling game drives and bush walks by expert guides on the border of Kafue National Park. It’s the best of both worlds, with fantastic opportunities for land and river-based activities. The lodge boasts 180-degree river views, and a plethora of wildlife is attracted to this water source year-round, with exceptional elephant crossings at certain times of the year.

The Kafue offers outstanding fishing for a wide variety of bream species, pike and yellowfish. This stretch of river is considered by many to be one of the finest along the entire Kafue and anglers of all skill levels can have incredible fun.

Zambia is well known as the birthplace of the walking safari and at Kafue River Lodge you can head out after an early breakfast and follow the calls of the animals with passionate guides who are eager to share their knowledge about the area and its wild inhabitants. The camp is seasonal and only open annually from 01 March to 31 December.
