Mayukuyuku (meaning water hitting rocks) is situated between the lightly wooded tree line and the Kafue riverbank. just downstream of a number of small rapids hence the name, facing a small island, so there are spectacular views in many directions, this often gives you good wildlife sightings when in the camp. This small, intimate camp has just 4 luxury en-suite permanent tents under thatched roofs with their own verandas and hammocks, each one overlooking the river. Hot Tea or Coffee is delivered to your tent at your required wake-up time,  to enjoy on your verandah. Nearly all the structures have been built using natural materials collected from outside the park, this gives the camp a truly rustic, old style “safari feel”. The adjoining bathrooms are open to the stars, have hot showers and flushing toilets. The main communal area has an open sided dining room with a small lounge and bar for an alfresco dining experience.  It’s location affords fabulous views down the Kafue River in the daytime and often hippo or antelope can be seen grazing on the banks.  In the evenings your three course meal is served in a cosy atmosphere with candles and lanterns.

Kafue National Park

Kafue National Park

Kafue National Park, one of the largest in Africa, has many varied habitats: the Kafue, Lufupa and Lunga rivers with adjoining peaceful stretches of riverine vegetation, dambos and wetlands, extensive miombo woodland with seasonal floodplains and swampland in the north. Owing to this diversity, Kafue is blessed in wildlife.


  • Kafue epitomises all the remote, wild and diverse characteristics of the Zambian wilderness
  • The vast Busanga Plains are perhaps the prime wildlife viewing destination in the country
  • Despite its remoteness, Kafue is easily accessible from both Lusaka and Livingstone
