The original Norman Carr classic
Kapani Lodge is a comfortable family lodge situated on the banks of one of the Luangwa River's many ox-bow lagoons. It is located close to the main Mfuwe area of the South Luangwa, ensuring excellent safari experiences at all times of the year and access to many community activities for adults and children alike.
Accommodating up to eighteen guests, there are eight brick and thatch standard rooms which are designed for the warmer weather with high ceilings, overhead fans and large gauzed windows. Each standard suite has an en-suite bathroom with shower and a lounge area with bar fridge and individual room safes. The ninth room is a large ‘Lagoon House’ which overlooks the Kapani Lagoon and is spacious enough to adapt for families to share.
The camp is on mains electricity and offers most modern facilities. A thatched building in the centre of the lodge houses the lounge and library. It is pleasantly cool in the hot weather and warm and cozy in the cooler months. According to the season, dining is al fresco with dinner taken either on the terrace, the spacious deck, or by the swimming pool. Private dinners can also be arranged for guests seeking a little more seclusion.
