Kakuli is a small luxurious tented camp located on an elevated section of the Luangwa River’s west bank, at its confluence with a small tributary called the Luwi River. Wildlife visiting the river can be easily spotted from the camp’s central thatched area.

This beautiful ten-bedded bush camp consists of large walk-in tents, each with an en suite bathroom made from natural materials. There is also a family villa with a double and triple bed. A central area for dining and relaxing is sympathetically constructed of reed and thatch. It is a great place to curl up with a book or simply watch the wildlife on the river and wide grazing lawn in front of you. Wildlife-viewing activities here include walking safaris, and both day and night drives, with plenty of leopards and resident elephant to be seen around the camp.
