Kakuli Bush Camp
Riverside Kakuli Bush Camp is a seasonal bush camp on the confluence of the Luwi and Luangwa Rivers. For many it marks the end of a walking safari from camp to camp following the course of the Luwi River.
Whether Kakuli is used as a stopover in the middle of a walking trail or as a base for a more static wildlife safari, the game viewing and night drive safaris in this area are spectacular.
There are 4 spacious, traditional safari tents under shady thatched roofs, each with an open-air bathroom. All tents overlook the river with stunning views along this hippo-packed stretch of the Luangwa.
A lovely thatched chitenje acts as the centre of camp. It is on a wooden deck overlooking the grazing lawn that leads down to the two rivers and is a perfect spot in which to relax and watch the river and the wildlife meander by.
Safari activities at Kakuli are a mixture of game drives and walking safaris. Guests are able to decide each day if they want to venture out on foot or by vehicle.
Night drive safaris are also known to provide guests with some very exciting game viewing.
Kakuli is one of the few Zambian bush camps open in February and March. As the river is high at this time of the year, access is gained by boat and activities are either on the river or on foot in the drier, sandy areas that surround camp.
