Chunga Safari Village
(6 twin-bed rondavels)
Turn south off the main road about 6.7km west of the main Kafue Hook Bridge
(GPS: TUCHGA). A good gravel road heads south for about 24km until the road splits: carry straight on for the Wildlife Training College, or bend right for a further 3km to the National Parks and Wildlife Service Headquarters at Chunga and the adjacent Safari Village (GPS: CHUNGA). You are now about 7.5km due south of Mukambi Safari Lodge, but on the opposite side of the river, the west bank.
This old-style self-catering village is next to the wildlife HQ. Its whitewashed thatch-on-brick chalets have been well cared for, but have probably escaped any updating, refurbishment or renovation work since they were first built. It's sometimes used for accommodation for conferences and workshops held at the Wildlife HQ, and otherwise is available for visitors to use for a modest fee. If the toilets and showers are working, they will be shared.
If you are self-catering, and have your own camping kit, then it might be worth looking in here – if only for the delightful bushbuck which wander nonchalantly around the camp. However, it's far from any game driving roads, so few people feel it's worth the effort. You certainly need all your own food, and when I last visited there was a question mark over the water supply.
