Hippo Lodge is situated along the banks of the Kafue River in Kafue National Park. Kafue National Park is one of Africa's largest game parks comprising 22,400 km2 of breathtaking wilderness and the greatest species diversity of all the National Parks in Zambia.

Hippo Lodge is a small, vintage-style stone-built camp with four uniquely built private chalets and two rustic safari tents each with open-air stone bathrooms.

Hippo Lodge is an owner-run camp and is geared towards creating a personalised and intimate atmosphere that one would expect from a classic safari lodge. The lodge has a peaceful and charming atmosphere heightened by it's seclusion within the bush.

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.

In authentic African-style, Hippo's accommodation does not have electric lights; the rooms are softly lit by paraffin lamps at night. Honeymoon house 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. Imberbe House is an impressive thatched A-frame for couples, nestled between two large Leadwood trees.

Stony House is a stunning and spacious self-catering villa that sleeps up to six people. It has its own kitchen and comes with cleaner/kitchen helper to assist you, and a laundry service.

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

Creative and appetising 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.

Hippo is a comfortable 4 hour drive from Lusaka in the dry season (May to mid-November) and the road is passable all year round for a reasonably high-clearance vehicle, although a reliable 4 x 4 vehicle is needed in the wet season (December to April).

The Hippo airstrip lies less than 2 km from the lodge and is open in the dry season. A flight from Lusaka International to the camp takes no more than an hour and a half. This is the only airstrip in the area (1100 km long).
