About this property

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. We first visited Kapani in 1995, when its founder, Norman Carr, was still alive – and whilst it has evolved and improved in comfort and style since then, its simple safari feel hasn't changed much. (This is a good thing in our view!) Kapani is laid out over open lawns, overlooking the lagoon, and its rooms are arranged either side of the camp's main lounge area– from where steps lead down to the main deck. This lower deck houses the bar, a comfortable seating area and the main dining area. The bar is a popular meeting place for pre-dinner drinks, and the deck is huge, with uninterrupted views of the ox-bow lagoon and the floodplain beyond. On top of the bank, a little away from the deck, Kapani has a separate lounge and library. This is furnished with very smart leather armchairs and sofas which are set around a stone fireplace. It looks like it would be cosy for chilly winter evenings. Next door to this is a well-stocked curio shop, with local merchandise from Tribal Textiles, as well as some wood and stone carvings. There are two different types of accommodation at Kapani. Most people will opt to stay in one of the eight semi-detached Standard Rooms. These rooms have a comfortable sitting area with a sofa and two easy chairs around a large coffee table, usually scattered with wildlife and birding magazines. Then towards the back of the room are two large twin beds or a double bed, surrounded by a large walk-in mosquito net. There is a ceiling fan, a wooden desk and a canvas wardrobe with toweling dressing gowns. A well stocked mini-bar and tea /coffee making facilities are discreetly tucked away around a corner in a cupboard. The small en-suite bathroom has twin ceramic washbasins set into a wooden top, a flush toilet and small shower. The bathrooms are simple and functional but they are nicely decorated and shampoo, soap and moisturizer are provided as well as a hair dryer! For families who require a little more space, or if you are celebrating a special occasion – you may wish to upgrade to the Lagoon Suite. This is much larger than the Standard Rooms, and perfect for honeymooners or families. Though the design and style of all the rooms is broadly the same, the Suite also has a huge verandah that is great for private dining or for enjoying the views over the lagoon. Inside, is a large king-size bed, surrounded by a walk-in mosquito net and you will also find a large sunken bath.
