John Deere Muleka is a bit of a renaissance man. As a mechanic, an artist, and a highly skilled guide, he can turn his hand to just about anything. With a career spanning 25 years and including guiding as diverse as the early days in South Luangwa, white water rafting on the Zambezi, Busanga Plains, Lower Zambezi, and now with Kaingu Safari Lodge at Kaingu, there are not many aspects of guiding that he hasn't done! As a leopard expert and a polished tracker and ethologist, he is very talented. He is unfazed by safari experts and in fact the more the challenge the more his skill shines through.
He is best described as Mr. Adventure. As a highly skilled canoeist and an athlete, he is who you want by your side when you get into trouble (which is perhaps why he is often with Gil). Kaingu's longest-serving guide, he has grown as Kaingu Safari Lodge has grown. In the last few years, he has attempted and attended more and more technical training and exams and his skill growth have been phenomenal. He has a unique dry humour that is loved by guests and a very caring nature. He also makes excellent pork belly snacks and enjoys cooking on island canoe trips. A very professional and tireless individual.
Israel Kayombo Kayombo is far cleverer than his male model looks and charm. He is a very solid individual who is well-liked by guests and staff due to his bubbly nature and unflagging enthusiasm. He does sometimes lose track of what day it is, but that is why he is loved by everyone! He is at home on land, on water, and is rapidly acquiring John and Kaley's enthusiasm for canoeing. As one of the highest scoring candidates in the Kafue guides exams, he is going places rapidly and says that he wants to one day write a book about guiding.
Kaingu Safari Lodge is located on the banks of the stunningly beautiful Kafue River in Zambia, full of rocks and islands. It is an area of remote and pristine wilderness, in the heart of the African bush. Here, you can enjoy wildlife and scenery undisturbed.
Kaingu has built an enviable reputation for food. Fresh and inventive menus that are updated with each new year as well as seasonal changes to ensure that your taste senses are also looked after. The head chefs, Wina and Lizzy, are vastly experienced, and Kaingu sources produce that includes as many organic ingredients as possible as well as grass-fed Zambian beef and sustainable wild venison. The meals generally consist of early continental breakfasts before game drives and then a buffet lunch with interesting salads and various dish choices. Dinners feature three-course meals.
