About Kafunta River Lodge

Kafunta River Lodge is set in a riverside forest on the banks of the Luangwa River, overlooking the South Luangwa National Park.

Setting a high standard, this classic safari lodge was fully renovated in 2019 and offers guests every modern day comfort, while being in the thick of the bush. Our eight private chalets are built-on raised wooden platforms under a thatched roof. Their mahogany floors and walls give a natural charm to their luxurious interiors. Two luxury suites with double decks complement the accommodation facilities.

Central to the chalets is the spacious bar and dining area. Built around a large semi-evergreen wild mango tree and thatched in the traditional style, it offers panoramic views over the Luangwa River and South Luangwa National Park. Great for game viewing and bird watching.

Adjacent to the bar is the infinity swimming pool and a natural hot spring tub with a constant temperature of 38 degrees. Built-on a natural hot spring, this magnificent feature is one of the many aspects that signals Kafunta out from other Lodges. The lodge has its own pontoon, and this adventurous crossing takes you into the more remote areas of the Park.

A intimate wellness spa and a separate gym hut are accessible to guests.

Kafunta River Lodge is the ideal base to discover vast areas of the South Luangwa National Park and our high-quality safaris will ensure an unrivalled experience. The stay can be combined with our bush camps Three Rivers Camp and Island Bush Camp for an ultimate Luangwa experience.
