Kapamba Bushcamp, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

The Kapamba River is only meters in front of camp, and guests can bathe, walk or enjoy sundowners in the river. With an exotic Mediterranean touch, the four chalets are open-fronted with wrought iron gates. There are 2 twin chalets (queen size beds) and 2 double chalets each (king size bed each), all with open-fronted, en-suite bathrooms featuring huge sunken stone baths and twin showers.

In Zambia’s iconic South Luangwa National Park, The Bushcamp Company operates six exclusive bushcamps in the remote south of the park, as well as the award-winning Mfuwe Lodge just inside the main park gate. Set out from any of these secluded, intimate camps and you will be guaranteed an unrivalled wildlife experience. With no other camps in the area and not traversed by any other vehicles, each camp is intimate and offers an authentic Zambian safari in stylishly appointed chalets.
