The large centrally located open-sided sitting room includes a dining area, library and Kaingo’s renowned thousand year old lead-wood bar.
Kaingo’s chalets are nestled discretely apart on the banks of the river all designed with sole purpose of transporting you safely into the world of the Luangwa without a single distraction.
All the chalets have a 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 lions roar, a leopards call or the early morning ‘drumming’ of the Ground Hornbill.
In addition to the indoor en-suite bathroom, each chalet has a stunning outdoor bathtub with shady views of a pod of hippos.
