KGU is located on the Kafue River, approximately , by road, south of Lusaka, the capital and largest city in Zambia. This is approximately upstream of where the Kafue River empties into the Zambezi River, and approximately upstream of the Kafue Gorge Lower Power Station. The geographical coordinates of Kafue Gorge Upper Power Station are:15°48'25.0"S, 28°25'16.0"E (Latitude:-15.806944; Longitude:28.421111).
KGU is an earth-rockfill dam with a concrete spillway with four radial gates. The electromechanical capacity is six generators of 150 megawatts each, for maximum capacity of 900 megawatts. The reservoir measures in surface area. The power generators and electromechanical power house are below ground. The water effluent from 900 megawatts Kafue Gorge Upper Power Station is used downstream to power the 750 megawatts Kafue
