Konkamoya Lodge

Nestled on the banks of the Iteshi Teshi lake, Konkamoya Lodge has five safari tents. Each tent is on a wooden platform raised a metre above the ground and away from any unwanted guests that might wander into camp!

Each tent is like a luxurious suite, with night area, lounge and a large bathroom with shower and hot & cold running water. Surrounded by the bush for complete privacy, all the tents look across the lake, east facing, for marvellous views of the renowned African sunrise.

Electricity is guaranteed by a solar system for a low environmental impact.

As in any traditional Zambian village there are two Lapa, comfortable meeting places which welcome guests around a big table for breakfast, dinner or a cup of tea on return from safaris.

 

Style

Five luxurious tents furnished in a colonial style, able to accommodate up to ten guests.

A purposely small number of explorers with a passion for nature, who are eager to explore the animal kingdom and will be lead on a voyage of the secrets of the African bush.
