Kingfisher chalet was Pinnon Lodges first in Kafue National Park. Construction took place in mid April 2016. Exactly four months later and we cannot really believe how the transition looks. With water on three sides this chalet gives you a real sense of being part of the river, hippos provide daily morning alarm calls due to the sand bank 30m away and the fig tree above is always a busy place with birds from all around coming to feed on its fruits.
Along with Wagtail, our other chalet now open, kingfisher was named because of the frequency of birds spotted when birdwatching from the chalets position. On one evening alone Lyndon photographed Giant, Malachite, Pygmy and Pied kingfishers.
Now Kingfisher is fully functional we cannot wait to start having guests in it and enjoying the peace and tranquility it has to offer.
