Campsite

Mayukuyuku Camp site

For motoring visitors or backpackers, we have a picturesque, well-equipped and shady campsite just on the opposite side of a small, dry riverbed from the main lodge facilities.

There are 6 pitches at present, all of which have lots of space and are situated next to the banks of the beautiful and life-giving Kafue River. This section of the river is just downstream from a set of rapids and wraps around a densely-forested riverine island. Without even having to leave the comfort of your camping chair, there’s a good chance you’ll see elephants crossing the river from the mainland to the island, while crocodiles and hippos are a guarantee, as is plenty of birdlife.

Some of our pitches have beautiful uninterrupted views of the river and the island while others look out across the seemingly endless untamed bush of Kafue National Park.  Just behind the pitches, there are clean and well-maintained shared bathrooms with showers that are heated by donkey boilers and are open to the stars. There are taps dotted around the campsite that provide fresh, clean drinkable borehole water.

We supply firewood free of charge and there is always a staff member on hand to get your camp fire going for you or bring you anything else you might need. For those without tents, we have lightweight tents and mattresses for hire on request.

The campsite can take approximately 25 guests.

Meals can be booked in the rustic open air restaurant at the main camp, where you can also enjoy a drink or two at the bar.
