Kapamba Bushcamp

In an untouched corner of the South Luangwa National Park, nestled in a prime location on the banks of the Kapamba River, is Kapamba bushcamp; a small, intimate camp that combines the seclusion and ideal game-viewing opportunities of a true bushcamp with modern comforts and luxury. Kapamba is one of a few Zambian safari camps that have set the standard for exclusivity and seclusion, and being surrounded by some of the park’s richest wildlife, has developed into an ultimate romantic destination.

The Experience

Kapamba bushcamp offers guests both walking safaris and game drives. There are numerous walking trails from the camp that follow the course of the river, although guests needn’t leave Kapamba to view game; the river near the camp attracts a variety of wildlife, and its raised wooden decks provide a great vantage point for game-spotting. Guests can enjoy the exhilarating experience on an early morning walking safari, and then later in the day, jump into a safari vehicle for an afternoon/evening game drive. There is some flexibility with this though, should guests wish to go on alternative activities. For special occasions, an afternoon wading through the cool waters of the Kapamba for a scenic sundowner or a romantic meal can be arranged. The river is shallow enough to ensure that there are no crocodiles or hippos, making it the perfect exclusive setting. Kapamba is ideal for small groups or couples seeking a personalized, remote bush experience, great hospitality and spectacular opportunities to explore this magnificent wildlife sanctuary.

The Accommodation

The charm and romance of Kapamba Bushcamp is most apparent in its four spacious en-suite chalets. Beautifully simple and utterly original, these entirely open-fronted rooms boast wide verandas with river views from the beds. Two of the chalets have raised salas which can be converted into beds for a night under the stars. Kapamba Bushcamps central area is positioned under the shade of matumi and sausage trees; a wide deck stretches out to the front with views of the Kapamba River. Built partially of stone, it is open at the sides and front, and has a high thatched roof which keeps it cool, even during the hotter months. Wooden rafters, an earthy polished stone floor and contemporary, safari-chic furnishings blend well and retain a classic bushcamp style. Outside, the expansive wooden deck is the camp’s focal point, with a seating area an pool that makes a wonderful spot to watch the animals that come down to drink at the river. On warm evenings, the dining tables are set up outside for a candlelit dinner under the African starry sky.
