Mukambi Safari Lodge is perfectly situated on the banks of the Kafue River surrounded by amazing wildlife and exceptional birdlife in summer. Mukambi offers guests a safari experience in the Kafue National Park's central region, one of Africa's largest Parks covering over 22 000kmª (roughly the same size as Whales).
Game drives, walking safaris, fishing excursions, boat and sunset cruises are all on offer when staying here.
Mukambi is perfect for couples, families and honeymooners alike with fourteen accommodation options available.
Mukambi Safari Lodge offers guest the choice of 14 accommodation options divided into chalets, tented suites and a family villa.
Nine thatched chalets are set slightly back from the Kafue River and offer large bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.
Four luxury tented suites overlooking the Kafue River offer guests a more private affair with large bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms and an open-air bathtub, the perfect option for those on honeymoon or those wanting to rekindle a love affair.
The River Villa with two-bedrooms, wooden deck, lounge area and en-suite facilities is perfect for larger families.
Three meals a day are included in the rate, breakfast, lunch, and a three-course dinner prepared by the team from only the finest and freshest locally sourced ingredients.
Excellent pizzas are available (loved by young and old alike) day and night should one choose, all local drinks other than top-shelf options are included in the daily rate.
Please note, not all dietary requirements are catered for due to remote location and produce available in Zambia as a whole.
The large thatched and luxuriously appointed central guest area offers guests a rather fantastic view of the Kafue River and beyond into the Kafue National Park.
Under thatch, one finds a dining room, bar area and lounge with fireplace, outdoors a viewing deck, firepit, dining area and a rather large swimming pool (with kiddies pool).
All in all, the central guest area is a good place to be when relaxing between safari activities or just catching up on some social media and news; WiFi is available here.
Safari activities include twice-daily game drives into the Kafue National Park, of interest, the safari vehicles are located in the national park and are accessed by a short boat cruise across the Kafue River.
Walking safaris are available in the National Park and are approximately 3 hours in duration, highly recommended.
Fish excursions, boat and sunset cruises on the Kafue River are excellent for birding. A visit to a local community school is also possible; this is a great option for giving back to the local community.
Families with children of all ages in tow are most welcome at Mukambi Safari Lodge with suitable accommodation, meals and activity options.
Please note that children under 6 years of age are not allowed on game drives unless a private vehicle is booked and that this is a malaria area and precautions need to be taken.
