The rustic Kapamba Bushcamp is situated in a remote corner of the South Luangwa National Park. This camp combines isolation and superb game-viewing opportunities of a true bushcamp with a touch of simplistic luxury.
Set on the banks of the shallow, spring-fed eponymous river, Kapamba is surrounded by the richest of wildlife. From your private chalet witnessing an elephant taking a dip in the river can be quite an experience. Relax in your private plunge pool along the river watching the wildlife go about their usual day. The central bar and dining room is positioned under a huddle of matumi and sausage trees, with a wide deck that stretches out with views of the Kapamba River. And if that's still not close enough for you, why not enjoy your G&T from the middle of the river itself, your feet dipped in the cool, crystal shallows. Open April to January.
Kapamba offers four spacious en-suite chalets. Cool, simple and utterly original, these entirely open-fronted rooms boast wide verandas with river views, twin showers and sunken stone plunge pools. Each evening iron shutters are drawn allowing you to take in the night views of the river but keeping you safe from roaming visitors wandering into your room whilst you sleep. Two of the chalets have twin beds (queen-sized beds), while the other two each have a king bed.
Explore the bush and the rich diversity of the surrounding area on a morning walking safari, and then later in the day, jump into a Land Rover for an afternoon/evening game drive. On special occasions, guests can also enjoy an afternoon wading through the cool waters of the Kapamba where a scenic sundowner or special meal awaits
South Luangwa National Park is the highlight of eastern Zambia. Known to locals as simply 'the South Park,' it was initially founded as the Luangwa Game Park in 1904, and converted to one of three game reserves in 1938. The impressive park covers an area of about 9050 square kilometres of the Luangwa Valley floor and lies anywhere from 500 meters to 800 meters above sea level. With its western and northwestern edge bounded by the Muchinga Escarpment and the southern borderline with the meandering Luangwa River, there's no shortage of dramatic and fascinating topography in this stunning game-rich park.
