Set on the edges of the great African Kafue River is KaingU Safari Lodge. I'm staying at the main camp with its family house and four beautifully situated tented suites. Set under thatch on a raised platform overlooking the river, mine boasts a luxurious en-suite bathroom and delightful outdoor shower, ...talk about communing with nature!
A more 'rough and real' camping experience can be found at two private camp sites overlooking the river, complete with ablution facilities, washing area and braai facilities. But alas, I'm more suited to the refined comfort of my accommodation, where I'm free to sit back and relax with the view or a book, or hit the bush on foot or by 4x4 - experienced and impressively knowledgeable guide in tow! Time spent in the two waterhole hides watching all manner of beast and bird converge is a thrill I'll never forget.
