The excellent team at Kafunta River Lodge was key in providing a safari experience of a lifetime. The cabins are spacious and comfortable, the food tasty and plentiful, but it's the people that really make a difference. Lodge manager Leandi is an absolute gem, and I simply cannot say enough about our guide Andrew. He is a walking, talking encyclopedia of the African bush. He asked about our interests and tailored our game drives to give us the best experience possible.
We arrived at Kafunta after 40 hours of travel, and were blown away with the wildlife we saw in the first 15 minutes out in front of our cabin. We took a game drive into the park that first afternoon and realized our safari was going to be like living in an issue of National Geographic.
We simply cannot fully express just how wonderful our trip to the South Luangwa and our stay with Kafunta was....it was everything we dreamed of and more. Thanks you Kafunta!
