Feel like an intrepid explorer in this rustic camp set in the heart of one of the world’s largest nature reserves

Mayukuyuku Camp is located on the banks of the Kafue River in one of the most picturesque spots in Kafue National Park. As big as Wales, the Kafue park is one of the largest game reserves in the world. The Camp is 250km from the capital city of Lusaka, an easy four-hour drive, and is open and accessible all year round.

The Mayukuyuku Camp accommodation consists of four large permanent tents with thatched roofs, a private veranda and hammock, overlooking the river. The structures have been built with natural materials giving a truly rustic feel. The en-suite bathrooms are open-air and have hot showers and flushing toilets. The camp can also accommodate guests with their own tents and currently has six spacious pitches. The campsite features well-maintained shared bathrooms and showers, taps with clean running water dotted around the site, as well as a free supply of firewood. The main communal area includes a dining room, small lounge and bar and affords excellent views of the river. The appetising food includes fresh, Zambian produce and the chefs can cater to all dietary requirements.

There are several activities organised by the Mayukuyuku Camp that enables guests to explore the fabulous surroundings. Early morning and sundowner game drives are done in open vehicles, with the sundowner drive even turning into a night drive to show the nocturnal wildlife. You can also hire a wildlife guide who will accompany you in your own vehicle for a game drive for the day, or longer if booked in advance. Nature walks are done at a leisurely pace through the bush, with a guide and armed scout, providing amazing opportunities to get closer to nature. Keen bird watchers can simply relax by the river and see an amazing array of bird species come and go. If you have your own fishing gear, you can fish on the river’s edge or take the boat with a guide down the Kafue.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
