Kakuli is a very special property as it is set right on the banks of the Luangwa River, South Luangwa National Park, overlooking a floodplain. There is an abundance of wildlife that can be spotted roaming below the camp, from impalas to elephant and giraffes alike. The area is also well known for their prolific leopard spotting.
The camp has only 5 suites, one being a family suite, which are light and airy built in such a way as to offer panoramic views. The rooms were refurbished in 2018 and the rooms as well as the rest of the camp boasts a unique open setting.
Guests can take advantage of the spectacular views and wildlife spotting whilst sipping on a drink from the lounge or if wanting an even more up-close view, from the wildlife hide below. The camp is also well known for its beautiful seasonal Carmine Bee eaters for those guests who enjoy bird watching.
The camp’s main area has an elevated main ‘Chitenge’ and deck which overlook a permanent waterhole. Kakuli features safari-style décor throughout, and guests can look forward to enjoying some rest and relaxation at the bar, lounge, dining room or on the deck that has a firepit and is a great spot for enjoying breakfast or even drinks before or after dinner.
Kakuli camp works well in conjunction with the other Time + Tide seasonal properties. Start your journey in the deeper parts of the bush, at Luwi or Nsolo camp and ending on the river at this stunning camp.
