Leopard Lodge in the Kafue National Park in Zambia has announced the completion of its refurbishment programme. The renovations included a new wooden deck over the river which allows for excellent game viewing.
The lodge can accommodate a maximum of 12 guests; activities include game viewing from either an open safari vehicle, on foot or by boat, visiting a natural hot spring, and fishing or enjoying a sundowner at a viewpoint above the lodge or while on the river.
The Kafue River is not only home to numerous large pods of hippos, it is also the source of life for the area, drawing animals to its banks for their daily drink and to cool off. Game viewing by boat is spectacular, especially as no other boats frequent these waters. Fishing is excellent and apart from pike, it has become a lodge tradition for fishermen to attempt to catch all five different bream species that occur in the river.
