Mapazi camp opened in 2018 and is situated in a beautiful location with few roads, on the western bank of the Luangwa River. This camp is owned and privately guided by one of Zambia’s most well-known guides, Deb Tittle. Safe to say you are in good hands when staying at Mapazi.
The camp itself is best described as rustic, but has some comforts making your stay here enjoyable. Mapazi aims to provide an authentic camping experience in one of the remotest parts of Zambia and focuses on walking safaris. Mapazi itself means ‘on foot’ or ‘tracks’ and it truly lives up to its name. Mapazi combines simplicity with a touch of style and comfort and does well to fit right in amongst its beautiful wilderness setting. The camp leaves plenty of room for the nature around it to envelop each guest, making a stay here an authentic experience.
Mapazi consists of 3 walk-in (Meru style) tents each with views overlooking the river. Guests can access the tents from both sides, purposefully constructed this way to allow a through breeze. Deb and her team have worked tirelessly to make sure that your camping experience will be unrivalled as they will go out of their way to create unimaginable wildlife experiences by tracking and getting as close to big game as possible. The real magic of Mapazi is feeling like you are living amongst the wild in a setting that is near untouched.
