In a remote corner of the South Luangwa National Park lies Kapamba, a camp that combines the isolation and superb game-viewing opportunities of a true bushcamp with a touch of… dare we say it… luxury.
Set on the banks of the shallow, spring-fed eponymous river, Kapamba is surrounded by some of the park’s richest wildlife. Watching an elephant take a dip in the river can be quite an experience when you’re lounging in your own private plunge pool. 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.
The charm and romance of Kapamba is most obvious in its 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 – the ultimate in bush indulgence. Clever wrought-iron shutters are drawn each evening so that you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the African night without worrying about unwanted 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. Kapamba is one of only two Bushcamp in the park to stay open from April until January – the other being Zungulila.
WHY CHOOSE KAPAMBA?
- Very comfortable open-fronted chalets, attractive wrought iron gates are drawn across
- In the evenings to protect guests from any unwanted night visitors.
- The en-suite bathrooms have a double-sized sunken stone bath & twin showers and are open-fronted, so guests are able to unwind in a hot tub overlooking the Kapamba River
- Toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner and skin moisturiser) are supplied in each chalet
