Hippo Lodge is situated along the banks of the Kafue River in Kafue National Park, Zambia.

The lodge is situated on East bank of the Kafue River, in the northern sector of the Kafue National Park, 100 km west-northwest of Mumbwa. Northeast of Hippo is the Lubungu ferry crossing on the old Kasempa road. Approximately 40 km down stream is Lufupa Lodge.


Two types of accommodation are offered, depending on preference and availability, in thatched chalets or safari tents. All the accommodation has been uniquely designed and framed with exquisite views of the Kafue River and its surrounds.

Honeymoon house (recently rebuilt) is a romantic house for couples set under large Jackal Berry trees on the edge of the river.

Munjili House is a small family chalet and ideal for bird watching, set back from the river with great views of the bush and a pair of resident Crowned Eagles.

Two rustic safari-style tents, each accommodating two people with en-suite open-air stone bathrooms are situated in amongst Riverine woodland.


Creative and appetizing meals are prepared by a trained chef and served in an open dining room over looking the river. Adjacent to the dining room is a fully stocked bar and swimming pool – a great place to cool off on a hot day or watch the sun go down. A small library of nature reference books and novels is also available to guests.
