Kafue 'goes green' all season!

Stay 6 nights between Nanzhila Plains and Kaingu Safari Lodge anytime from 15 May to 15 November 2017 and pay Green Season prices throughout.

This really does give you the best of the Kafue experience for exceptional value as you combine Nanzhila Plains with its ‘dry’ camp activities of game drives and bush walks with Kaingu’s ‘wet’ camp activities including boat cruises, canoeing and fishing on the Kafue River – an exceptional all round safari.

Day 1 - 4: Livingstone - Nanzhila Plains

The Classic Kafue package begins in Livingstone with a 3 hour road transfer to Dundumwezi Gate where you will be met by the Nanzhila Plains safari team. Enjoy a game drive into camp and settle into the beautiful rooms with views over the dambo to enjoy a 3 night stay. Nanzhila is the closest true safari destination in Zambia to the Victoria Falls and enjoys nearly 3000sqkm to itself. An incredible variety of wildlife and birding species as well as a quite magnificent location overlooking the dambo make Nanzhila one of the most memorable safari camps in Zambia.

Day 4 - 7: Nanzhila Plains - Kaingu Safari Lodge

After a hearty breakfast, we will head out over the plains and through the Ngoma Forest towards Lake Itezhi-tezhi (there is also the option of stopping to visit the Elephant Orphanage) before arriving at the ITT shoreline. Stopping at an appropriate shady spot, we will enjoy a picnic lunch watching the antics of the wildlife around the lake before meeting the team from Kaingu. Kaingu is magnificently situated in the riparian woodland on the banks of the Kafue River with stunning views. African finfoot, hippo and a wide variety of birdlife are on constant display and river based boat cruises and canoeing is a must on this portion of the Kafue River. Kaingu also conducts game drives in a stunning section of the Kafue National Park.
