Kakuli is a tented bush camp on the confluence of the Luwi and Luangwa rivers in the South Luangwa.
There are four traditional walk-in safari tents each with an en-suite bathroom made with natural materials. A lovely thatched chitenje (lounge) 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 wildlife meander by, the views from Kakuli are spectacular. The bar and dining chitenje is constructed of reed and thatch forming the centre point of camp.
This area of the Park is renowned for offering guests some of the best game viewing opportunities in Zambia. Safari activities from Kakuli will usually be a mixture of game drives and walking safaris. Guests are able to decide each day if they want to venture out on foot or with the vehicle. Most evenings however, you will want to explore the area after dark. This stretch of the Luangwa isfantastic for wildlife. It is bustling with predators and the best time to see them in action is during those first few hours of darkness. Night drive safaris from Kakuli have been known to provide guests with some of the most exciting game viewing in Zambia.
Kakuli is the only true bush camp open for the green season and offers spectacular views of the Luangwa River.
