Location: South Luangwa National Park

Take in spectacular views of the Luangwa River from your perch high above on its bank. Kakuli, meaning old buffalo bull, was the nickname given by locals to Norman Carr, the pioneer of walking safaris.

Wake up to a chirping flock of Lilian’s lovebirds stopping by for a morning drink. Pause mid-brunch to welcome a giraffe feeding on nearby trees. Watch a herd of elephants lumber down to the river from the privacy of your outdoor shower.


The camp makes a great base for exploring by vehicle and on foot, with a resident lion pride, a seasonal colony of jewel-like carmine bee-eaters and the most sightings of leopards in a single drive every year. During the lush emerald ‘green season’ venture out by boat and on foot to enjoy some of the best opportunities

The elevated main lounge overlooks the river and a permanent lagoon. Beneath it, a wildlife hide offers up-close views of visitors stopping by for a drink. Take a deep breath and admire the sweeping vista with a refreshing drink of your own before sampling traditional Zambian dishes at dinner.

Its five bright and airy safari rooms (including a two-bedroom, two-bathroom family safari room) are designed to make the most of the panoramic setting, each offering a feather-top bed, indoor and outdoor showers, and a covered open-air seating area.
