Ron and Ancke, the owners and managers of Kafunta River Lodge, travelled all over the world but it is South Luangwa National Park that stole their hearts – just as it will certainly conquer yours. Thatched in traditional style, the 8 double chalets and 2 luxury suites command panoramic views over the Luangwa River from each of the private verandas. A swimming-pool and a bar are at your disposal at the camp. And if you are keen on pampering yourself, why not take a dip in the natural hot spring tub overlooking the flood plains? Fitted with mosquito nets and electric fans, the spacious rooms each have an en suite bathroom with hot and cold running water.
