Hippo Lodge is a unique safari camp situated on the Kafue River. The Lodge is managed by a couple who will make sure that your stay is unforgettable. As you will be part of an exclusive group of no more than 12-16 people, you will be able to benefit from your host’s personal attention and their extensive knowledge of the region. Accommodation consists of five private thatched chalets, all en-suite. Each chalet is secluded from the rest and they all have breathtaking views of the river. From your chalet you can enjoy nature from the bed, the bath or the verandah. Stony House, a uniquely built, secluded and spacious villa, is ideal for a family group, and can also be used for self-catering. If you want to be closer to nature then choose one of 6 spacious en-suite tents on the island. Each tent has en-suite bathroom. The Island is ideal for larger self-catering groups. Creative and appetizing meals are prepared by trained chefs and are served in an open-air dining room over-looking the river, and our resident hippo family. Close by is a welcoming open-air bar and swimming pool. Guests can enjoy game drives, walking safaris, fishing trips and river cruises. At the end of an action packed day they can relax in the tranquil and healing azure waters of the natural hot spring. Children of all ages are welcomed. The lodge is about 5 hours drive from Lusaka or a 1½ hour flight from Lusaka International Airport to our own 1100 m-long Hippo airstrip. The road from Lusaka via Mumbwa is accessible all year round.
