Kakuli Bush Camp is a seasonal bush camp on the confluence of the Luwi and Luangwa rivers. For many it marks the end of a walking safari from camp to camp following the course of the Luwi River.

Whether Kakuli is used as a stopover in the middle of a walking trail or as a base for a more static wildlife safari, the gameviewing and night drive safaris in this area are some of the best in Zambia.

Kakuli is one of the few Zambian bushcamps to open in February and March. At this time of year the river is high, we gain access by boat and activities are either on the river or on foot in the drier, sandy areas that surround camp.


Rooms & Suites:

There are five spacious at this South Luangwa Bush Camp, traditional safari tents under shady thatched roofs, each with an open-air bathroom. All of the tents overlook the river with stunning views up and down this hippo-packed stretch of the Luangwa.


Facilities:

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 and is a perfect spot in which to relax and watch the river and the wildlife meander by.


Activities:

This area of the Park is renowned for offering guests some of the best gameviewing opportunities in Zambia. Safari activities from Kakuli will usually be a mixture of game drives and walking safaris.

Guests are able to decide each day if they want to venture out on foot or with the vehicle.

Most evenings however, you will want to explore the area after dark. This stretch of the Luangwa is fantastic for wildlife. It is bustling with predators and the best time to see them in action is during those first few hours of darkness. Night drive safaris from Kakuli have been known to provide guests with some of the most exciting gameviewing in Zambia. It is certain that your wildlife safari at Kakuli will be one to remember.
