Overview

Vingerklip lodge is a reasonably priced lodge in a remote spot in the Khorixas area of North Zambia. Within sight of the famous finger rock that the lodge is named after, and amid dramatic rock formations, this friendly lodge has great facilities for a family stay.

The communal areas at Vingerklip are made of large, open structures with panoramic views across the landscape. They include comfortable lounge and bar areas, a pleasant restaurant with a large terrace and a sheltered sundowner verandah. The property also has two reasonable sized swimming pools and a jacuzzi with an outside relaxation area. Eagles Nest restaurant, serving traditional African cuisine with three hundred and sixty degree views, is a ten minute walk away and guests are welcome to exchange one of their dinners at the lodge for Eagles Nest at no extra charge.

The private fenced reserve has three watering holes, the largest of which is floodlit at night to give guests the best viewing opportunities. Wildlife includes giraffe,zebra, springbok,baboons and warthogs. A variety of long and short trail walks are marked out, including to the famous Vingerklip rock. There are several different trails, that are both guided and unguided, giving you the opportunity to plan your own days. Game drives can also be organised as can sundowner drives; with the possibility of seeing some wildlife but with the intention to enjoy the landscape over a cold beverage.

The accommodation is comprised of 22 rooms spread across 11 double thatched bungalows. Each room is individually furnished and has its own private terrace looking over the rugged scenery. Eight of the bungalows offer loft accommodation that has been converted for children; perfect for families with older children who will enjoy the freedom of their own space. An upgraded bungalow, ‘Heavens Gate’ sits atop a hill with stunning scenery, accessed by a twenty five metre metal staircase.

Children of any age are welcome at Vingerklip, however the children’s accommodation is in the loft and therefore there would be a significant risk of falling for very young children. With multiple pool facilities and walks that vary in length, there would be plenty to entertain families with older children.

Vingerklip lodge is a pleasant, friendly camp with varied accommodation options and guest areas. A good choice for families less interested in seeing wildlife, or as a stopover, this camp enjoys a remote location but cannot offer the richness of wildlife seen in other areas close by.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
