Kapani, which means 'the place of the Mopane trees', is situated on the banks of a permenant oxbow lake, just outside South Luangwa National Park. After serving as a gateway for visitors to the South Luangwa for a number of decades, Kapani closed to the public at the end of 2015. The camp now acts as the operational headquarters for Norman Carr Safaris, who own a number of bushcamps in the park, as well as the luxurious Chinzombo.
Our view of Kapani Lodge
Due to its proximity to Mfuwe Airport Kapani is an ideal lodge for one or two nights upon arrival in the Luangwa Valley, or at the end of your stay. It's a substantial and very reassuring camp which works well for an introduction to the area, and allows travellers to recharge and recuperate from their journey before heading further into the park. Kapani also works well for travellers who may be on bit more of a budget, or who may prefer more of a solid structure, as opposed to the more temporary structures of the bush camps.
