Wasa Lodge overlooks the blue water of Lake Wasa in the eastern part of Kasanka National Park, where puku, hippo, and sometimes sitatunga are seen.
Accommodation is in seven traditional-style rondavels, four of which have double and single beds, plus a verandah and bathroom with shower, wash basin and flushing toilet. Three smaller rondavels have double or twin beds and an en suite bathroom with flushing toilet and simple bucket shower. A raised central bar/dining area has a long open terrace overlooking the lake.
Situated 12 kilometres from the park gate, the lodge is close to the sitatunga hide and mushitu (swamp) forest and offers excellent walking trails, as well as safaris by canoe and four-wheel drive. The atmosphere at Wasa is relaxed with activities arranged according to guests’ wishes. Its friendly staff come from the local community which benefits directly from tourism revenue and so assists with Kasanka's wildlife conservation.
