A remote and romantic camp situated in a prime location on the Kapamba River, and one of only two Bushcamps to be open from April to January.


Combine the isolation and superb game-viewing opportunities of a true bushcamp with a touch of style.

Surrounded by some of the park’s richest wildlife, the central living and dining area at Kapamba huddles under matumi and sausage trees, opening onto an extended deck with a swimming pool. Cool, contemporary, and utterly original, the open-fronted bedrooms boast wide verandas and twin showers with views of the river. At night, pull closed the wrought-iron shutters and enjoy the sights and sounds of the night without worrying about unwanted visitors… Two of the chalets also have raised sleep-out salas (with small bathrooms) – a wonderful experience to sleep out under the stars, or to relax during afternoon siesta.


Get out into the bush and explore the rich diversity of the surrounding area on a morning walking safari or game drive, and then later in the day, jump into a Land Rover for an afternoon/evening game drive. When the weather is right, spend siesta time in the Kapamba River right in front of camp, or take a dip in the pool to cool off. We offer both walking safaris and game drives each morning, and an afternoon/evening game drive.

An iconic tradition

As the sun sinks below the horizon, there is nothing better than finding a spectacular spot in the heart of the bush for an ice-cold drink and something to nibble on.

Exceptional wildlife-viewing

Explore the rich diversity and incredible wildlife of the South Luangwa on a game drive. On four wheels, you’ll cover as much of the region as possible and maximise your game-viewing.

Where the walking safari is King

The walking safari was born in the South Luangwa, so it’s only fitting that many of your outings will be on foot with the very finest guides.
