Kapamba Bushcamp

About Kapamba Bushcamp, South Luangwa

In a secluded and somewhat untouched corner of the South Luangwa National Park, in a region of prolific wildlife, lies Kapamba Bushcamp. This small and intimate camp is set in a stunning location, amongst the matumi and sausage trees, on the banks of the spring-fed Kapumba River, a tributary of Luangwa River. With spectacular views of the picturesque landscape surrounding it, the camp offers great game viewing opportunities and has a high concentration of lions.

The chalets have a real remote and romantic feel, with fully open fronts.

Deck areas and baths that can be used as plunge pools they are so large - perfect for a night admiring the stars!

Lodge Details

Style

Remote with a real African romance feel, a luxury camp ideal for honeymooners and romantic getaways.

Setting

On the banks of the Kapamba River, South Luangwa National Park. Set amongst beautiful vistas in an unspoilt corner of the park, wildlife is drawn to the permanent waters to drink providing fantastic viewing for guests. Kapamba Bushcamp is the only one in the area open from April to January.

Accommodation & Facilities

Accommodation consists of 4 large stone chalets (2 twins and 2 doubles) which are entirely open fronted and the private, wide verandas give a fantastic view of the river. The en-suite features are one of the chalets best features, with flush toilets, twin basins and twin brass shower heads above the bath. The bath is so large it can be, and often is, used as a plunge pool and looks directly out over the veranda to the vistas beyond. Wrought iron gates are closed over the front of the chalets at night, for safety, however they do not obstruct your views; so lying in the bath under the stars watching the game drinking from the river is a very possible feature of your stay!

The main section of the camp is focused around a well positioned wooden deck overlooking the river, which serves as both a dining area and a bar. Lighting is solar powered and there is a power point in each of the chalets for camera charging.

Dining

Food at the camp is a combination of African and Western flavours, generally served at the dining area. Private meals on your deck can be arranged and sometimes it is possible to enjoy your meal from the middle of the river, toes submerged.

Activities

Game drives can be done day and night and are executed by fantastic guides. Walking safaris are done in the morning and afternoon; however it is possible to combine walking safaris with different bushcamps – spending a few nights at each.

Child Policy

Children over 12 are welcome, however under 16’s are not allowed to walk in the park.
