Mufungata Safaris is a small, but unique lodge on an isolated stretch of the Kafue River in the Namwala West GMA. The lodge is named after the puku, an antelope similar in size and behaviour to the impala, but is more closely related to the lechwe. Livingstone was the first white man to describe this antelope and he retained the name given to it by the people of the area.
Wildlife populations include kudu, impala, puku, hartebeest, bushbuck, elephant, zebra and lion. Mufungata Safaris offers guided safaris, including hiking and boat trips, vehicle game-viewing, fishing and also community visits to the local village. Full board accommodation is offered in double roomed cottages built along the river with views across its 200m expanse with hippo and crocodile visible throughout the day. All cottages are equipped with electricity, separate hot shower, bath and toilet. The cottages provide accommodation for 14 guests.
The bar and dining areas overlook the river providing a spectacular view. A campsite with shower and toilet block and a two storied viewing deck has been constructed down river from the lodge. A family cottage for two couples plus children is available too.
