Itinerary

Day 1
Kafue River Lodge

Arrive at Kafue River Lodge and spend the next 3 nights going on multiple activities. Activities include:

game drives
boat cruises
fishing
bush walks
bikes
outdoor dining

Kafue River Lodge is your reward at the end of your journey into the North-Eastern Kafue. The stretch of the Kafue River where the lodge is located is varied, gentle and favored by wildlife. The 4 ensuite chalets overlook the river and the sounds of hippo carry clearly across the grounds with the miombo woodland behind camp also playing home to a steady stream of game and birds.

Day 2
Kafue National Park: Kafue River Lodge

Full day of activities with Kafue River Lodge.

Game drives take place in the Lunga Luswishi, Kafue National Park and Mushingashi Conservancy. The advantage to the game drives is that one can cover a lot of ground whilst searching for those special sightings. Of course, sundowners and coffee stops are mandatory and you may just be surprised with a bush breakfast after the drive has finished.

Boat Cruise at Kafue River Lodge are focused on birding and botany but this changes during winter when the the river becomes the primary water source. Plenty mammal sightings along the banks of the Kafue. In September / October you can always expect some great cat sightings and occasional elephant crossings as many animals go there to escape the heat of the day by the cool water under the foliage of the waterberry trees.

Other activities to chose from include:

fishing
bush walks
bikes
outdoor dining

Day 3
Kafue National Park: Kafue River Lodge

Another full day of activities with Kafue River Lodge.

The Kafue offers outstanding fishing for a wide variety of bream species, pike and yellowfish. The stretch of river that we offer is considered by many to be one of the finest along the entire Kafue and anglers of all skill levels can have incredible fun targeting the rapids, rocks and flooded timber with lures, spinners and bait for the numerous fish species on offer.

Other activities to chose from include:

bush walks
