COVID-19: ACTIVITIES & SERVICES

Day 1: South Luangwa National Park

On arrival at Mfuwe airport you will be met for a road transfer to Kafunta River Lodge by a representative from the lodge.

Time permitting, you will experience your first afternoon / night game drive which continues after sunset to have the unique opportunity to observe those animals which are active only at night and to have a chance to see the larger predators such as leopards, lions and hyenas on the move and possibly hunting.

Expert tips

Don't miss a dip in the hot tub!

This is the only natural hot tub in the Luangwa Valley! We are lucky to have a natural hot spring flowing underground, so the hot tub is fed directly from this geothermal source, with its water constantly at 38 degrees centigrade. Perfect for the winter months!

Day 2: South Luangwa National Park

Enjoy an early morning tea before your first morning Safari in South Luangwa National Park.

You may fancy some therapy shopping of locally produced crafts at Mulberry Mongoose, Tribal Textile Coffee Shop or Project Luangwa. 

Game drives are our favourite activity at Kafunta River Lodge. They start with the exciting river crossing at the pontoon, laying just minutes away from the lodge and giving access to more remote areas with extraordinarily good wildlife.

Expert tips

Wildlife Hide 

The floodplain and waterhole in front of the lounge is a haven for all sorts of animals. Be it a family of elephants, a few giraffes, an inquisitive puku, a discreet water-monitor lizard, a couple of saddle-billed storks or our resident fish eagle, there is always something to observe. Our photographic hide is the perfect place to photograph these daily visitors.

Expert tips

The Royal Bush Spa

Treat yourself to The Royal Zambezi Bush Spa which offers stunning views over the Zambezi river and has won the world luxury spa award for three years in a row.

 

Days 7 - 8: Lower Zambezi

You have a choice of two activities to choose from, or do nothing at all.

The “Do Nothing at All” option, abbreviated to DNA, is a Royal special and is often a total misnomer as the goings-on in a quiet camp often leave you breathless. The concept of DNA is essentially to stay in camp, spend time relaxing by the main pool or bar, chatting to other folk on the deck, browsing through the many reference books in the lounge or staying in your suite simply DNA.

 

Day 9: Victoria Falls (Zambia)

Road transfer to Royal airstrip for a scheduled flight to Livingstone airport where you will be met for a road transfer to Chundukwa River Lodge.
