The well-known Lufupa area of Zambia's Kafue National Park is recognised as a focal point for prolific animal and bird life. Situated at the confluence of the Lufupa and Kafue Rivers, this site offers access to productive game viewing areas in the dambos (open grassy clearings) and woodlands of the northern Kafue.

Puku, impala, and Defassa waterbuck are common while more unusual species include Lichtenstein's hartebeest.

The area is renowned for its leopard viewing and elephant and lion sightings are regular.

Rooms & Suites:

The newly-built Lufupa River Camp features seven comfortable en-suite tents (two of which are family rooms) on the banks of the Kafue River offered on a bed-and-breakfast basis.

Food & Wine:

The vibrant social hub of this Kafue River Camp is the whimsically named Kafue River Café with a bar and restaurant; a la carte meals and drinks are served during the day and early evening to guests of Lufupa River Camp and the nearby campsite.


Activities (at extra cost) include day and night nature drives exploring prime game viewing areas adjoining the Kafue River and Lufupa Channel.

Boat trips reveal the incredible hippo population of the area complemented by a constant array of colourful waterbirds, reptiles and other life amongst the riverine vegetation. Guided nature walks and fishing excursions are also on offer.
