General

Commonly known as “The Gateway to The Kafue National Park”, Mukambi Safari Lodge is centrally located in the park, right on the banks of the stunning Kafue River. The Kafue National Park is one of the largest national parks in Africa (roughly the size of Wales at more than 22,000km²) therefore we would recommend you book with us for at least a week so you have time to explore this vast park. The lodge itself consists of a thatched building with several decks overlooking the Kafue River, and offers a new infinity pool, so in the hot days you can relax in the pool, looking over the vast Kafue River, peacefully reading one of the books from our small library collection. When you return from one of our activities come and relax, with a drink from our bar in hand, in one of the lounge areas, choose from three tiered decks, all offering stunning views of the Kafue River. Or chat to one of our guides while gazing up at the stars in the night sky by our warm campfire.

Mukambi Safari Lodge offers game drives daily. One departs at sunrise and the afternoon drive (partly a night drive) leaves at approximately 2 hours before sunset. Drivers are 3.5 to 4 hours long.  vehicles are located in the park, which is a short boat trip across the Kafue River, so all game drives depart from within the park.Walks leave in the early morning hours after sunrise to avoid the heat of the day. The walks take place in the Kafue National Park itself and are approximately 3 hours.

Kafue National Park

Kafue National Park

Kafue National Park, one of the largest in Africa, has many varied habitats: the Kafue, Lufupa and Lunga rivers with adjoining peaceful stretches of riverine vegetation, dambos and wetlands, extensive miombo woodland with seasonal floodplains and swampland in the north. Owing to this diversity, Kafue is blessed in wildlife.

Highlights

  • Kafue epitomises all the remote, wild and diverse characteristics of the Zambian wilderness
  • The vast Busanga Plains are perhaps the prime wildlife viewing destination in the country
  • Despite its remoteness, Kafue is easily accessible from both Lusaka and Livingstone
