Kakuli Bush Camp

South Luangwa National Park, Zambia


Stay at Kakuli Bush Camp

A tented camp with spectacular views on the banks of the Luangwa River. The only true bush camp open for the entire green season. This beautiful camp has four traditional walk-in safari tents each with en-suite bathrooms made from natural materials.

The rooms are generally spacious, each containing two three-quarter or one king-sized bed. Wardrobe and shelving storage is available in the rooms, as well as indoor and outdoor comfortable seating areas with tables.

The private open-air en-suite bathrooms have plenty of hot water, towels and toiletries. After dark, a member of staff will accompany you to and from your room, lighting the way and watching out for local wildlife.

A lovely thatched chitenje acts as the centre of camp. It is on a wooden deck overlooking the grazing lawn that leads down to the two rivers. This is the perfect spot in which to relax and watch the wildlife meander by; the views from Kakuli are spectacular.

The team at True Travel had a simple brief: to send us on the world’s best family safari. As soon as our boat headed down the Zambezi, it all kicked off; we passed a herd of hippos, a lazy crocodile and a giraffe drinking nonchalantly on the riverbank. A magical experience from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble and if we had any issue that needed resolving, there was always someone on hand to do this. Before and after, they were off the charts – simply an awesome team.
