Kanyemba Lodge is located just a short distance from Makanya Village – which is also home to the majority of our staff. We are delighted to offer visits to Makanya Village to guests who wish to see a typical rural Zambian village. You will be escorted by one of our staff members, who will introduce you to residents of the village, and its facilities. The village walk is often combined with a short sunset cruise on return to the lodge.

Please note that we request our guests to NOT take items to give out in the village – specifically sweets, pens, etc. This creates a culture of begging – something we are particularly careful to ensure does not happen.

If you wish to make a donation of items, please speak to a member of senior staff, and we can arrange for goods to be donated to one of the local schools.


If you have any questions about Kanyemba Lodge or Kanyemba Bushcamp, please feel free to get in touch via our contact page and we would be delighted to assist.
