Kapamba Bushcamp Information
- Location and getting there:
The camp is situated on the banks of Kapamba River in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. It is almost a five-hour drive from Mfuwe Airport.
Each of the five chalets is open-fronted to maximize the views and features colourful contemporary décor with North African influences, carved wooden furniture, an inviting bed draped with mosquito nets and a lavish bathroom with a sunken stone bath that can be used as a plunge pool in the heat of the day. Wrought-iron shutters are drawn in the evenings so you can enjoy sounds of nature surrounding you. Two chalets have two queen-size beds and two have a king-size bed.
Central bar and dining area with wooden deck
As well as walking safaris, there are day and night games drives offered every day as well as bird watching. One of the highlights is sipping a G&T as you dip your feet into the middle of the river.
Children over the age of 12 are welcome but the camp has a romantic feel and is better suited to grown ups. (Children under 12 can be accommodated if the camp is booked for private use.)
