"Chula Island Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 29 Jun 2022
"We enjoyed the difference location Chula offered after staying 2 nights in Kutali.

On one afternoon game drive, we saw a pack of 25 wild dogs playing and trying to chase down pretty much everything (warthog, guinea fowl, impala, waterbuck) that they came across. Later one of the dog was chased by an elephant not far from a bull buffalo. It was one of the highlight of our trip.

Similar comment for improvement on organization and service as Kutali Camp but nevertheless a very enjoyable stay." See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia

"Chula Island Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 10 Jun 2022
"Chula is the sister camp to Kutali and therefore similar in layout and facilities. It is however situated on an island on the Zambesi and so each game drive began with a 15 minute boat ride to where the game vehicles were parked.

If possible, I enjoyed Chula even more than Kutali despite the similarity in food, service and facilities all of which were excellent. The bird life was amazing, but this may have been due to the birders also staying at the camp.

The drives were adrenalin-fuelled. Here we saw leopard and a huge pack (24) of wild dogs attempting to make 2 kills. Our guide Josh was a super guide. He handled the boat and game vehicle superbly and was a gun in spotting and following game. The hours flew by even though the days (from 5.30am to 7.30pm) were long.

I would definitely return to Chula for both the outdoor camping and rich game viewing experience." See all these reviews: 14n in Zambia
