Mukambi Safari Lodge




Mukambi Safaris is a family run safari company in Zambia with three camps in Kafue National Park, one of the largest unspoiled wilderness areas in the world. The three camps are Mukambi Safari Lodge, Busanga Plains Camp, and Fig Tree Bush Camp, each surrounded by unique, untouched areas of remote African bush.

Mukambi Safari Lodge is set in the central Kafue region on the Lunga river. It is the perfect starting point for your Kafue safari. Activities consist of game drives in open-canopy vehicles, boat and fishing trips, along with walking safaris where you are likely to see elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, puku, impala, hippo, many other animals and an incredible array of birds.

Fishing trips by boat take place at any time of day and are approximately 2.5 hours long. While out on the river, just you and your guide, you can enjoy the surrounding nature while fishing.

Luxury Tented Room

Four Luxury tents that have a private deck with comfy seating overlooking the Kafue River. This is our most luxurious accommodation with each unit privately surrounded by natural riverine bush. A freestanding ball and claw bathtub is found on each deck. Further enhancing the African theme, the furniture is made out of recycled wood from Dhows that used to sail the Indian Ocean off Tanzania. Cocooning mosquito nets surround luxurious box spring beds and the entrance to the private deck is made of wall to wall wooden sliding glass doors that provide spectacular views and light into the tents. The tents have an open bathroom setup with shower, toilet and washbasin. All rooms are made up as king beds but can be made up as twins on request. These units are reserved for guests staying on a safari package but can be booked on last minute basis. They do also offer a romantic experience and are great for honeymooners.
