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. A remote and romantic camp situated in a prime location on the Kapamba River, and one of only two Bushcamps to be open from April to January.
Kapamba Chalets – 4 Rooms
The charm and romance of Kapamba is most obvious in its four spacious en-suite chalets. Dark russet walls, oversized beds with linen throws, big mosquito nets and copper accents create a peaceful ambience to rest and restore after game drives and walking safaris.
The bathrooms feature indoor showers opening out to the outdoors, 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 have tree top salas overlooking the river, a place to game view, read, snooze, or just relax in calm solitude during afternoon siestas.
Kapamba is one of only two bushcamps in the park to stay open from April until January, the other being Zungulila.

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.
Get out into the bush and explore the rich diversity of the surrounding area by jumping into a Land Rover for a driving safari (day or night). On special occasions we can also arrange an afternoon wading through the cool waters of the Kapamba where a scenic sundowner or special meal will be waiting for you.
