Kafunta River Lodge - Kafunta Safaris

Kafunta River Lodge is a classic Zambian safari lodge, combining all the essentials for a great safari, including its spectacular location at the edge of the floodplain. Beyond the plain, lies the Luangwa River – one of the best game viewing areas in the magical South Luangwa National Park. This is indeed the premier park in Zambia and one of the best national parks in all of Africa. The lodge offers a relaxed atmosphere and great attention to details.

Kafunta River Lodge

Established for over 25 years, Kafunta is a distinctive Zambian safari lodge with a contemporary touch; it combines all the ingredients to create an exceptional safari. Here you will find the rest and peace you need after an exciting day in the bush in combination with attentive service and a warm welcome by our team.

Our attention to detail and relaxed atmosphere is matched by our professionalism. We love what we do and pass this on to our guests. Highly qualified guides take you on sensational game drives and share their extensive knowledge of the African bush with you.

At Kafunta each of the stylish safari chalets and the main lounge / dining area overlook the game rich flood plain. Beyond the plain is the Luangwa River and one of the best game viewing areas South Luangwa.

Activities include game drives, walks and visits to Mfuwe for a cultural and artistic experience.

The lodge features eight standard chalets, two luxury suites, and a separate private house called The Sunset House. The main lodge features an infinity pool, a natural jacuzzi fed by a hot spring, a small spa and a photographic hide. Opened late 2023, the Sunset House is a composed of 3 en-suite bedrooms, an indoor lounge and outdoor dining area, as well as a private pool and large decks and a fireplace. It comes with its own chef and safari guide.
