Owner-run and long-established safari experts combine high-quality wildlife viewing and specialized guiding into a unique guest experience.

Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi National Park is simply stunning. The aesthetics are in part from the 120km of Zambezi Riverfront, the concentration of game along the valley floor, and the backdrop of the magnificent Zambezi Escarpment. The park is opposite Mana Pools National Park, a World Heritage Site across the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe. The range of activities from your doorstep is another stand-out feature of the Lower Zambezi and Kutali & Chula are located to make the most of this aspect and to complement each other.

Both Kutali Camp and Chula Island Camp are open from May 1st until October 31st

Kutali is a comfortable tented camp with all the luxuries one could wish for but with the charm and ethos of a true seasonal bush camp. With just 5 guest tents, catering for no more than 10 people in camp at once – each tent is carefully and expertly located for the best possible views across the Zambezi River. The Kutali tents are bespoke and very comfortable, with high-quality linen and mattresses, alongside flushing toilets, running water taps, and traditional bucket showers! A main area stretch-canvas tent set beneath the towering Winterthorn trees makes for an exceptional location for meals, reading, charging cameras, and wildlife watching.

Chula Island Camp is a stunning tented camp with all the luxuries one could wish for but with the charm and ethos of a true seasonal bush camp. With just 5 guest tents, catering for no more than 10 people in camp at once – each tent is carefully and expertly located for the best possible views across the Zambezi River. The Chula tents are bespoke and very comfortable, with high-quality linen and mattresses, alongside flushing toilets, running water taps, and traditional bucket showers! A main area stretch-canvas tent set beneath massive Natal Mahogany trees makes for an exceptional location for meals, reading, charging cameras, and wildlife watching.

Kafue National Park

The Kafue is one of the largest tracts of unfenced wilderness in the world. From vast Plains to never-ending Miombo woodland, from broad slow-moving rivers to adrenaline-packed white water rapids there is so much to see and explore. Knowing where to stay and what the experience will be like can be a challenge, but we are here to help and our camps in Northern Kafue offer the very best Kafue safari experience.

This includes en-suite flushing toilets and on-demand hot water showers. All our power requirements are drawn from a well-configured solar setup and the main area has plenty of surplus power 24/7 to keep all your devices fully charged and drinks ice cold.

Our small Basunga camp consists of just four thatched chalets ( 5 from 2024) which are accompanied by open-air en-suite bathrooms at the rear, with flushing toilets, plumbed sinks and taps, and warm bucket showers. There are two main areas, one a raised deck overlooking the vast Busanga Plains and another a bird hide cum sitting area to recline use in the heat of the day! The main deck supplies power for charging cameras and other devices and has a small bar for refreshments.

Liuwa Plains National Park

The Liuwa Plains are a phenomenal and truly unique wildlife area. A vast open wilderness home to herds of hundreds of wildebeest, clans of hyenas in the dozens, and some of the most varied and unique flower and bird species in Africa. With annual visitor numbers in the low hundreds, you will have this remote and under-explored area to yourself. However, local knowledge is key to unlocking the magic of Liuwa and this is where our safaris and our long history of guiding and natural history film-making become invaluable. Join us on one of our few select mobile safaris to Liuwa, running in May/June and November/December annually.
