Luangwa Valley, Zambia
Kaingo Camp lies in the shade of an old ebony grove on the banks of the Luangwa River in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. The camp is surrounded by a large ebony forest, the spectacular Lion Plain and the beautiful Fish Eagle Lagoon and is teeming with wildlife.
This owner-run luxury safari camp has an informal, relaxed atmosphere and rustic-luxe style.
