      Safari Chalets With Stunning Luangwa River Views

      Overlooking the Luangwa River deep within the prime area of the South Luangwa National Park, Kaingo’s relaxed, personal and friendly atmosphere offers its guests fantastic game-viewing opportunities within an area of incredible beauty and varied terrain. Nestled discretely apart on the banks of the river, Kaingo’s chalets were designed with the sole purpose of transporting you safely into the world of the Luangwa without a single distraction. Large fly-wired windows provide stunning views of the river; and the complete absence of generator noise (we prefer solar power) means nothing but the wheeze-honk of a hippo interferes with the sounds of a lion’s roar, a leopard’s call or the early morning ‘drumming’ of the Ground Hornbill. In addition to the indoor en-suite bathroom, each of the six chalets has a stunning outdoor bathtub with shady views of a pod of hippos. A special feature of Kaingo is the unique individual decks built out over the river in front of each chalet. From this relaxing vantage point one can view game coming down to drink, basking hippos, aquatic birds, crocodiles fishing, and daily elephant crossings. The varied terrain around camp includes the picturesque Fish Eagle Lagoon, one of the largest ebony forests in the park, and the spectacular Lion Plain (the biggest plain in the valley - a hugely productive grassland that teems with wildlife) bordered by the meandering Luangwa and Mwamba Rivers. The area is ideal walking safari country (under the watchful escort of an armed scout and guide). A network of carefully planned, low-impact roads provides excellent coverage of this game-rich terrain. Game-drives and walks from Kaingo provide exciting photographic opportunities for guests, the action often starting just outside camp. There are two extremely productive lion prides near Kaingo Camp and there are more than 10 individual leopards. The elephant hides and hippo hides are close to camp, which afford visitors close-ups of these large, extraordinary mammals. Stork fishing parties, Carmine bee-eater colonies, resident Pel’s fishing owl and Red-billed quelea in the thousands are among the birding highlights of the area.
