Kapamba Bushcamp

Explore Zambia

Kapamba Bush Camp is a seasonal camp (Apr ?? Jan) situated in a remote corner of the South Luangwa National Park set on the banks of the shallow, spring-fed eponymous river, Kapamba and surrounded by some of the park's richest wildlife.

Kapamba offers 4 spacious en-suite chalets, 2 twin chalets with 2 queen size beds in each and 2 double chalets with king size beds in each. These utterly original rooms are cool and simple and entirely open-fronted boasting wide verandas with river views, twin showers and a sunken stone bath - lounging here, whilst watching an elephant take a dip in the river, can be quite the experience. Every evening clever wrought-iron shutters are drawn so that you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the African night without worrying about unwanted visitors wandering into your room whilst you sleep.

Positioned under a huddle of matumi and sausage trees is the central bar and dining room with a wide deck that stretches out with views of the Kapamba River. The camp is powered by solar power and limited battery charging is possible.

How to get to Kapamba Bushcamp

Fly into Mfuwe International Airport from Livingstone (4 hours with a stopover) or Lusaka (1 hr 10 min). Drive to Mfuwe Lodge in the park (45 min) for refreshments before travelling to Kapamba Bushcamp which is approximately a 3.5 hr to 4 hr drive at game viewing speed.

Activities at Kapamba Bushcamp

Guided walks, game drives, night drives and bird watching. On special occasions the lodge can also arrange an afternoon wading through the cool waters of the Kapamba where a scenic sundowner or special meal will be waiting for you.
