About Sanctuary Zambezi Kulefu Camp, Lower Zambezi

Kulefu which means “the far away place” is a camp that is set on a permanent channel of the Zambezi River, under the shade of Winterthorn Acacias. There are seven spacious tents all set round the main communal area. All the canvas tents are ensuite and all have views over the impressive Zambezi River. There is a swimming pool and decking that overlooks the river where you can relax and watch the hippos and elephants in the river below you. Zambezi Kulefu is positioned on the Zambezi River but is away from the “cluster” of other lodges along the river offering a feeling of solitude and remoteness.


Lodge Details


A traditional authentic style camp, kept small for a truly intimate feel.


In a wonderfully remote area of the Lower Zambezi National Park, the camp has stunning views over the Zambezi and the game that frequents it.

Accommodation & Facilities

There are 7 spacious tents, slightly elevated on a teak deck, all under canvas in a Bedouin style; each is en-suite with a separate bath and shower. Rooms include a small seating area, either twin or double beds swathed in mosquito nets and a writing desk. The central area is comprised of 2 large tents raised on an extensive deck for panoramic views of the mighty Zambezi and include a lounge, dining area, bar and small library. The swimming pool is just to the side of this, boasting fantastic vistas of the game-rich area.


The menu stars authentic African cuisine, served both indoors and outdoors. A candle lit meal under the stars in the evening, watching the meandering Zambezi ripple down stream is something not to be missed!


Day and night game drives, walking safaris, fishing for the notorious tiger fish, canoeing and motorised boat excursions. All activities are accompanied by a knowledgeable and skilled guide.
