Puku Pan Safari Lodge in Zambia has an ideal and scenic setting on the banks of the Kafue River - offering a unique game viewing experience on a secluded stretch of one of Zambia’s mighty rivers near Kafue National Park. All cottages are built along the river with views across its 200-meter expanse with hippo and crocodile visible throughout the day, hippos stroll through the lodge grounds during the night to graze further inland.
The lodge is named after the Puku, an antelope similar in size and behavior to the impala but closely related to the Lechwe. Livingstone was the first white man to describe this antelope and he retained the name given to it by the people of the area.
Puku Pan Safari Lodge was designed to harmonize with its natural surroundings. Eight individual secluded, thatched cottages (including a family cottage) blend in with the indigenous trees that line the bank of the river. The accommodation inside, the spacious rooms are traditionally decorated with colorful ethnic fabrics. From the veranda you can gaze out over a magnificent view of the tranquil river. The day's silence is broken only by the sweet song of birds and the snorting of hippos wallowing nearby Kafue National Park.
