Zambezi Kulefu Camp, Lower Zambezi National Park

Stay at Zambezi Kulefu Camp

Kulefu is a wonderful camp really deep in the Lower Zambezi National Park. There are some exceptionally pretty game drives through little forests with small leafy clearings as well as near to the river. It is as yet, relatively undiscovered by tourists to Zambia.

Zambezi Kulefu Camp, Zambia

Our rating: First Class Rating information

Deep in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park, not far from where the great river meets Mozambique, lies the charming Kulefu Tented Camp, 'the faraway place'. The camp is situated in riverine forest, beneath the escarpment and overlooking a permanent channel of the Zambezi, far from any significant amount of passing boat traffic from other camps.

The newly refurbished camp has seven canvas chalets and hosts a maximum of 12 guests at any one time. Each has tent has polished mahogany floors and lovely views across the river channel. Furnished with a good sized bed and a dressing table, the tents have en-suite bathrooms with shower; there is also an outdoor shower perfect for cooling off in the hot afternoons and a private deck to relax on during your siesta time. The tents have been specially designed to remain cool and each has two ceiling fans. In the evening, paraffin lamps glow around camp to light your way - the camp is unfenced so there is plenty of game passing through, so you will be escorted from your tent in the evening.

The central lounge and dining area is housed in two magnificent Bedouin-style tents and furnished with teak furniture and natural fabrics. There is a dining area with timber floors, a library, a bar and a lounge with large squashy sofas. The decor is modern and stylish, with an array of African influences. A large raised wooden deck runs along the width of the lounge and dining areas, a great place to stop and watch the animal activity. There is also a small swimming pool for relaxing around in the afternoons. From Kulefu you can enjoy boat and land based game viewing led by experienced guides. There is great game in this area, one of the wildest, most secluded spots in the Lower Zambezi.
