Kapamba Bushcamp

Set on the banks of the shallow, spring-fed Kapamba River, Kapamba is surrounded by some of the South Luangwa National 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.Two of the chalets are twins (2 queen-sized beds) and two are doubles (king-sized bed). Kapamba has the longest season of our Bushcamps and is open from April to January.

Kapamba Chalets

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 pool-size bathtubs – 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 are twins (2 queen-sized beds), while the other two are doubles (king bed). Kapamba is one of only two bushcamps in the park to stay open from April until January, the other being Zungulila.
