Set in the south of the valley, it is set upon the Kapamba River edge. Kapamba comprises of just four chalets. The chalets are open but remain secluded with massive baths and plunge pools, perfect to lounge and observe the wildness of the bush from.
Open for a much longer season than most bush camps, it is the perfect place to explore this beautiful safari destination with a loved one. Enjoy candlelit dinners in the shallows of the river or a bubble bath for two in between incredible sightings of lions, leopards and elephants, who walk through the camp! Kapamba is both romantic and luxurious.

One of the best things about this camp must be the huge rooms with what can only be described as a bathroom plunge pool (of which you have another outside – the river!). The story goes the measurements were given to the builders in centimetres but built in inches… Their mistake is our good fortune! They remarkably fill in record time and to continue the romance, there is, of course, room for two!
If your huge bath didn’t provide quite enough water for you, there’s a natural paddling pool which is very clean and clear! The Kapamba River flows right through the camp where you can wade through the cool waters. You can even set up a bean bag and dip your feet during a sundowner or request a special lunch and watch the elephants come by, adding to the romantic charm. Just make sure with the team that the water is safe to enter before fully embracing it which it should be as due to its clarity there are no fish and subsequently no crocs and it’s too shallow for hippos.
Unlike most bush camps that are open from June to November, Kapamba is open from April to January. If you are looking for walking specialists and remote wilderness out of the high season, Kapamba is one of the very few choices in the Valley.
Enjoy the camp in the lush green seasons when the birding is fantastic, the scenery is green and lush, and the baby animals begin to arrive!
