Project Description

Standing beside the magical Luangwa River, the Kafunta River Lodge is a classic Zambian safari lodge that offers its guests personalised and friendly service.

The spacious wooden deck situated off the central area, is built above the waterhole. This provides guests with undisturbed views over the plain. Sit back and absorb the stunning vistas that surround you. And when darkness falls enjoy a delectable candle lit meal under the vast African sky whilst watching as animals of all types come to the floodlit waterhole in search of their next meal. This experience is one that cannot be recreated or even put into words, it’s that unbelievable.

The central dining and bar area are built under a large thatched roof, encircling a wild mango tree making for a truly impressive atmosphere. The rooms are situated overlooking an open dombo area, built on stilts to maximise the views. They are tastefully decorated with African charm and style.

The 8 thatched wooden chalets offer an en-suite bathroom and a private veranda. The 2 suites are equipped with luxury en-suite bathroom and an upstairs viewing area. The main area has a dining room with lounge and bar. There is a swimming pool and a natural hot tub for the guests relaxation.
