Kakuli by Norman Carr Safaris

South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Part of the Zambia Safari & African Safari Collection

Kakuli is a seasonal bush camp that offers some of the best game viewing and night drive safaris in Zambia.

There are four spacious, traditional safari tents under shady thatched roofs, each with an open-air bathroom and one family room which can host up to 5 guests. All of the tents overlook the river with stunning views up and down this hippo-packed stretch of the Luangwa. 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 and is a perfect spot in which to relax and watch the river and the wildlife meander by.

Safari activities from Kakuli will usually be a mixture of game drives and walking safaris.

As well as an exciting base for walking and game drives in the peak season, it is the only true bush camp open in Luangwa’s ‘Secret Season’ 20 Jan – 3 April for our Rivers and Rainbows safaris. At this time of the year the river is high and guests can experience both walking and boating safaris.
