Perched high above the Luangwa River, Kakuli Camp offers impressive vistas of the river's many visitors below. Designed to celebrate the panoramic scenery, a stay at Kakuli is a truly awe-inspiring experience.

Freshly redesigned in 2018, the suites offer comfort in all seasons, making it the hidden gem of our Secret Season. They are thoughtfully appointed to ensure every guest enjoys their experience. A two bedroom, two bathroom family suite is perfect for friends and families creating lifelong memories together.

During the dry season, the camp is a fantastic base for exploring by vehicle and on foot. During our Secret Season (20 January to 5 April), Kakuli welcomes guests to experience the magic of the South Luangwa in its full, lush glory. The Rivers + Rainbows itinerary allows guests to explore on foot and by boat during this marvelous season. Verdant backdrops and dramatic skies make it especially excellent for wildlife and landscape photography.

The area is renowned for some of the best game viewing opportunities in Zambia with resident prides of lion, leopards and other hidden wonders. This is one of the best camps in the South Luangwa for viewing the immensely beautiful and iconic carmine bee-eaters.
