Located on an elevated perch above the floodplains of South Luangwa National Park, Kakuli Camp is an intimate and comfortable safari camp and one of the few to be open between January and April.
A seasonal camp, accommodations consist of five lovely riverside tents including one family tent. Each thatched roof and canvas tent has real doors, but the front can be opened so guests can enjoy stunning views of the bush from the comfort of their bed. The en suite bathroom features a sink, a large shower, plenty of hot and cold running water, and a flush toilet. A private, shaded veranda is the ideal spot to relax into a comfortable chair and take in the scenery and wildlife.
The camp overlooks the Luangwa River in South Luangwa National Park, a world-famous wildlife haven. The Muchinga Escarpment forms the park’s western and northwestern boundaries, sloping steeply down to the river from the west side. The river valley, continued to the west by the Lunsemfwa River valley, forms a natural barrier, and to this day there are no man-made roads spanning the valley. The Park enjoys a dense animal population including Impalas, pukus, waterbucks, giraffes, and buffaloes grazing on the plains. A high number of leopards stalk the dense woodlands, while herds of elephant wade through the marshes and hippos play in the Luangwa River. There are about 400 bird species recorded in the Park.
