Time + Tide Kakuli Camp
Take in spectacular views of the Luangwa River from your perch high above on its bank
Kakuli, meaning old buffalo bull, was the nickname given by locals to Norman Carr, the pioneer of walking safaris.
Its five bright and airy safari tents (including a two-bedroom, two-bathroom family safari tent) are designed to make the most of the panoramic setting, each offering a feather-top bed, indoor and outdoor showers and a covered open-air seating area.
The elevated main lounge overlooks the river and a permanent lagoon. Beneath it, a wildlife hide offers up-close views of visitors stopping by for a drink. Take a deep breath and admire the sweeping vista with a refreshing drink of your own before sampling traditional Zambian dishes at dinner.
The camp makes a great base for exploring by vehicle and on foot, with a resident lion pride, a seasonal colony of jewel-like carmine bee-eaters and the most sightings of leopards in a single drive every year. During the lush emerald ‘green season’ venture out by boat and on foot to enjoy some of the best opportunities for wildlife and landscape photography.
