We will set up camp in the Namwala Game Management Area (GMA) on a spectacular and remote stretch of the Kafue River. The Kafue National Park, just opposite the lodge and only a 10 minute boat trip away, offers magnificent game that you can enjoy viewing from our comfortable open game drive vehicles.
The Kafue River, with all its myriad of channels, rapids and islands lends itself to a range of exciting river based activities which include boat cruises, fishing, birding, canoeing and river trails. From the top of one of the large granite boulders in the Namwala GMA you will get a 360° view over nothing but nature!

The journey will take approximately 7.5 hours, one of the longer transfers of this safari! We will set up a mobile camp in the heart of the plains. The park is characterised by its spectacular flat landscape with wide-open spaces. Its seasonally flooded Zambezi floodplain is dotted with slightly elevated wooded islands.
You will most certainly hear the whoop of a hyena at night when sitting around the campfire. Interestingly enough, Hyenas are the apex predator here. It is believed there are around 350 individuals in the park! Other species of fauna include Lion, cheetah and wild dog.
