Kapani Lodge is situated on the banks of one of the Luangwa River's many ox-bow lagoons. It is located in the main Mfuwe area just outside South Luangwa National Park
Kapani Lodge is quite a large safari lodge in comparison to many of the other smaller camps within the area. This is an ideal place from which to start or end a safari within the Luangwa Valley due to its reassuring comfort and proximity to Mfuwe airport.
The lodge consists of eight standard suites each with its own lounge, large beds with overhead fans inside walk-in mosquito nets and ensuite bathroom.
There are also two "Lagoon" houses which are more spacious with private views and are ideal for honeymooners or those looking for a little more space and seclusion.
A thatched building in the centre of the lodge houses the lounge and library surrounded by open lawns. It is pleasantly cool in the hot weather and warm and cozy in the cooler months with an open fire.
The bar and dining area is set on a deck overlooking the Kapani Lagoon and adjacent grazing lawns. According to the season, dining is al fresco with meals taken either on the terrace or the spacious deck.
There is also a small gift shop offering books, clothes and local crafts as well as a secluded swimming pool at the far end of camp.
Activities are based around day & night game drives into the centre of the Park, after crossing the main Mfuwe bridge, where the volume of game is high but also the busiest area of the park for visitors.
Owned and operated by Norman Carr Safaris the camp combines well with its sister-camps, Nsola, Mchenja, Kakuli and Luwi - where as you would expect the guiding is of the highest quality.
