Time + Tide Kakuli

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 our pioneering founder Norman Carr who began the tradition of walking safari here in South Luangwa National Park.Its five bright and airy rooms (including a two-bedroom, two-bathroom family suite) are designed to make the most of the panoramic setting. Freshly redesigned in 2018, each offers 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 ‘secret season’ venture out by boat and on foot to enjoy some of the best opportunities for wildlife and landscape photography.
