Kakuli's accommodation is in 4 spacious, traditional safari tents under shady thatched roofs, each with an open-air bathroom. All of the tents overlook the river with wonderful views up and down this hippo-packed stretch of the Luangwa.
A lovely thatched chitenje acts as the centre of camp. It is built 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. All meals, comprising breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea and dinner, are included. Most meals are served buffet-style, but for dinner you will generally be seated with the persons who have accompanied you on your safaris that day, plus your guide, giving you the opportunity to discuss your experiences of the day together. Dinner consists of a three-course meal, freshly prepared, cooked in camp and served to you at your table.
Safari activities from Kakuli are a mixture of game drives and walking safaris, and you get to choose, each day, which you would prefer. In the evenings, you also get to explore the area, as this stretch of the Luangwa is fantastic for wildlife.
It is a good place for predators and the best time to see them in action is during those first few hours of darkness. Night drive safaris from Kakuli have been known to provide guests with some of the most exciting game viewing in Zambia. It is certain that your wildlife safari at Kakuli will be one to remember.
Kakuli is one of the few Zambian bush camps to open as early as February and March. At this time of year the river is high, and the camp is accessed by boat, with activities enjoyed on the river or on foot in the drier, sandy areas that surround camp
