Kapani Lodge

Explore Zambia

Found on the banks of one of the many ox-bow lagoons on the Luangwa River, Kapani Lodge is located close to the main Mfuwe area of the South Luangwa, one of the finest National Parks in Zambia. The property is a good starting point for a safari, set under cool trees and rife with game. The lodge was renowned conservationist Norman Carr's HQ and home.

This luxury lodge provides guests 9 rooms in total, 8 of which are standard and one of which is larger accommodation known as the Lagoon House. Standard rooms are comprised of thatch and brick and feature small and basic en-suite bathrooms, which include flush toilets and a shower. For staying cool in the warmer weather, rooms feature high ceilings with fans, gauzed windows and a bar fridge. Standard rooms also provide comfortable lounge areas and are the preferred choice for those not travelling in large groups. However, for those that are in larger groups the Lagoon House is ideal. Possessing a view of the lagoon this bigger accommodation is particularly well suited to families.

Amidst game viewing activities guests can relax in the lodge swimming pool, which is quite large and very much inviting under a hot African sun. There is also a gift shop on offer as well as a library and lounge area. Cuisine is served al fresco when possible, with location dining also a possibility. Guests are spoilt for choice; varying from poolside meals to private dining for added intimacy.
