Safaris - Kapani Lodge
Norman’s last home and company HQ - Kapani Lodge is a comfortable family lodge situated on the banks of one of the Luangwa River's many ox-bow lagoons. It is located close to the main Mfuwe area of the South Luangwa, one of the finest National Parks in Zambia.
Accommodating up to eighteen guests, there are eight brick and thatch standard rooms which are designed for the warmer weather with high ceilings, overhead fans and large gauzed windows. Each standard suite has an en-suite bathroom with shower and a lounge area with bar fridge and individual room safes. The ninth room is a large ‘Lagoon House’ which overlooks the Kapani Lagoon and is spacious enough to adapt for families to share.
The camp is on mains electricity and offers most modern facilities. A thatched building in the centre of the lodge houses the lounge and library. It is pleasantly cool in the hot weather and warm and cozy in the cooler months.
According to the season, dining is al fresco with dinner taken either on the terrace, the spacious deck, or by the swimming pool. Private dinners can also be arranged for guests seeking a little more seclusion.
The location of the camp in the main Mfuwe area of the South Luangwa ensures an excellent safari experience at all times of the year and access to many community activities for adults and children alike.
We have a small gift shop offering books, clothes and local crafts as well as a large secluded swimming pool at the far end of camp.
Norman Carr – the father of Zambian conservation and tourism built Kapani in 1986 and made it his home until his death in 1997; he had been in the Valley for over fifty years. In this time he earned the reputation across the continent as a tireless conservationist and was the founding father of photographic walking safaris and the concept of “eco-tourism”. He wrote several books about the local area and the people and wildlife that live here. His legacy now continues to live through his family and dedicated staff – Kapani is still the home of the Carr family.
Kapani means - place of mopane trees.
