Editorial Description

Kaluki – or ‘old buffalo bull’ Camp is a tented camp in Zambia which is right on the banks of the Luangwa River within the South Luangwa National Park.

Located in one of the best areas for spotting game in the region, this beautiful camp has four traditional safari tents around a central reed and thatch bar and dining area which is set on a wooden deck. With spectacular views over a grazing lawn which gently slopes down towards the river, it’s the perfect spot to relax and watch the wildlife wandering by.

The site offers an all-inclusive stay, including transfers and all game-viewing activities, and a variety of different safaris are available on foot and by boat. The well-appointed tents are extremely comfortable and well equipped, and made of natural materials. This doesn’t mean any compromise on quality though! With local guides who know the area extremely well, this really is glamping with a difference.


This beautiful riverside camp has four traditional walk-in safari tents all with en-suite bathrooms made from natural materials. The entire camp is on an elevated stretch of river bank overlooking a wide grazing section which follows the Luangwa River until it meets the confluence of the Luwi River. The bar and dining chitenje (lounge), constructed of reed and thatch, forms the centre point of camp. With the fantastic view from its wooden deck it is the perfect spot in which to relax and watch the wildlife meander by.

This area of the Park is renowned for offering guests some of the best game viewing opportunities in Zambia. Safari activities from Kakuli can be a mixture of game drives and walking safaris; it is up to the guests whether they venture out on foot or in a vehicle. Boating Safaris are available during the times of year when the river is high. This stretch of the Luangwa is bustling with predators and the best time to see them in action is during those first few hours of darkness so most guests also explore during the early evening.
