Mayukuyuku Camp, Kafue National Park, Zambia

Mayukuyuku is a charming small camp located in the central Kafue and is one of our favorites in the park. Owned by Pippa Turner who has spent many years working in the Kafue, alongside head guide Patrick, a local Zambian, the hosting is superb and staff are wonderful.

There are just four tented rooms here, each overlooking the river. Each has a sunlounger and safari chair at the front, as well as a hammock strung in the trees. Inside is a double and single bed, each with mosquito netting, and lots of little touches to make your stay comfortable: a luggage rack, hanging rail, mirror and shelves. At the back is an open air ensuite bathroom with reed and grass walls, a basin, loo and shower built around leadwood tree limbs. Hot water is available on request throughout the day and evening. There is an open sided dining area set under a tall thatch roof, with wonderful river views, and meals are often taken in other hidden spots around the camp, including on the sandy riverbanks when the water levels are low. Meals are delicious and eaten communally, adding to the convivial atmosphere here. Activities are varied, including game drives, boat safaris fishing and walking safaris.
