Kakuli is a beautiful camp, overlooking the Luangwa River. The camp is recently refurbished, the stunning suites are huge thatched villas, which are completely exposed to the wildlife.
A welcome addition to the family villa is the addition of a second bathroom so you don’t have to share. The camp is in an area that is particularly good for wildlife viewing, both on foot and in a vehicle, with resident lions, leopards and a huge carmine bee-eater colony nearby!

Norman Carr is one of the pioneers of photographic safaris, so it comes as no surprise that the camps are all based in wildlife prolific areas, where you have great opportunities to get the perfect shot. Be it of the resident lions and leopards, who have territories around camp, or the prolific bird life (over 700 species have been recorded in the area).
Open during the green season, it is one of the few, remote, bush camps you can visit within the park during that time of the year.
Norman Carr is also a pioneer of the walking safari, the bush camps are perfectly set up for this. Lead by expert guides, you can discover the valleys wild terrain, by foot. If you are looking for a special walk you can make the trip to one of the sister camps either Mchenja, which is only 4km away, or if you are up for a good trek you can walk the 14km to Nsolo!
A walking safari is a really thrilling way to see the big game, monitoring their behaviour and figuring out which way is downwind! However, it is also an incredible way to learn the ways of a ranger, learning to track, recognise alarm calls, watch and identify bird movements and see some of the smaller creatures and plants in the valley!
After a hard days walking in the bush (or even sitting in a vehicle), is there anything better than a good meal? The dining experience is brilliant at Kakuli, from the incredible service to the imaginative culinary creations the chef manages to whip up in a bush kitchen! From Zambian inspired dishes and flavours to refreshing snacks and on a sundowner, your stomach and heart will be content!
