About Kakuli Bush Camp
A tented camp with spectacular views on the banks of the Luangwa River. The only true bush camp open for the entire green season. This beautiful camp has four traditional walk-in safari tents each with en-suite bathrooms made from natural materials.
The rooms are generally spacious, each containing two three-quarter or one king-sized bed. Wardrobe and shelving storage is available in the rooms, as well as indoor and outdoor comfortable seating areas with tables.
The private open-air en-suite bathrooms have plenty of hot water, towels and toiletries. After dark, a member of staff will accompany you to and from your room, lighting the way and watching out for local wildlife.
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. This is the perfect spot in which to relax and watch the wildlife meander by; the views from Kakuli are spectacular.
Located a small distance downstream from the confluence of the Lubi and Luangwa rivers, Kakuli sits on the banks of the Luangwa itself â it is a wonderful setting for a camp.
