Konkamoya Lodge


Rating: Simple    

Konkamoya Lodge overview

Konkamoya in Zambia's Kafue National Park is co-owned by Cooke's African Safaris and Andrea Porro. Konkamoya offers a range of activities which can easily warrant a 3 night stay.

Lake Itezhi-Tezhi covers an area of 370 square kilometres which includes grassy banks and plains, rocky bays and areas of submerged trees which provide a haven for water birds and fish. 

The lodge is small and intimate with currently just 4 large tented rooms, each with a bathroom, living area and veranda. The unusual design of the main area is a welcome change from the 'traditional safari camp' style. The main 'lapa' area, built on a termite mound, consists of a raised bar and lounge overlooking the lake. The dining area is at ground level, and after dark the fire is let here.

The game viewing around Konkamoya is varied and plentiful with the lake providing a welcome water source for all species. Elephant, buffalo, zebra and many antelope species including roan, puku and waterbuck. Wild dogs are resident in the area, too. The activities at Konkamoya include day and night drives and bush walks. 


Open:  Konkamoya Lodge is open from mid-June to mid-November, the dry season.

Location: Konkamoya Lodge is by the Itezhi-Tezhi Lake in Kafue National Park. This is a remote, little-visited area. The nearest airstrip is at Ngoma. Komkamoya is about a 5 hour drive from Lusaka and 7 hours from Victoria Falls.  

Rooms:  There are 4 safari tents set on raised wooden decks. Each has a bedroom, bathroom with hot and cold running water and views across the lake, and a lounge. Private decks overlook the lake and are screened by trees and bushes for privacy. All tents face east and are perfectly positioned for watching the sunrise. They are supplied with solar-powered electricity, and have mineral water and tea and coffee making facilities, and are cooled by breezes blowing from the lake.

Activities:  Game drives in open-sided 4x4 vehicles. These set out from camp just after sunrise and about 2 hours before sunset each day. The afternoon drive usually includes sundowners and a return to camp looking for nocturnal species by torch light. Guided walks are available.    

Facilities:  There are 2 lapas, open air meeting areas, for dining and socialising around an open fire. It is also a great spot from which to watch wildlife by the lake while enjoying a drink from the bar. Dining:  Meals are eaten communally.  

Children:  Children of all ages are welcome, though only those over 6 years can take part in safari activities. Children under the age of 16 must share a tent with their parents.

Health:  This is a malarial area.

Communication:  There is no Wi-Fi internet access.

Julie Croucher, Tribes ()

"Wow!  This place really did tick all the boxes for me - Chris's guiding is absolutely superb, he has the amazing ability to make everything, even the little things that you see on a game drive really fascinating!  The location is like nothing else in Kafue - it feels like you are on the coast with the 'beach' and the tranquil lake.  One of the great things about staying here is the wide range of activities you can do - I'd recommend a stay of three or four nights."
