Kalamu Lagoon Camp is remotely located in the southern part of Zambia’s magnificent South Luangwa National Park, on the banks of the beautiful Kaluma lagoon. This luxurious tented camp is uniquely situated to access both the lush eastern and western banks of the Luangwa River – a lifeline to the approximate 100 species of mammal indigenous to South Luangwa and home to the largest population of hippo in Zambia. Nestled in a lovely grove of ebony trees, Kalamu Lagoon Camp consists of eight comfortable and beautifully-appointed reed-and-canvas tents, each with an en suite bathroom and outside shower.
Each tented room also has an intimate verandah with a splendid view of the lagoon. The main area of the camp consists of a dining area, bar, swimming pool and spacious deck overlooking the lagoon and surrounds. This camp truly boasts a back-to-nature feel, yet offers copious amounts of luxury.
Activities at the camp aim to give a well rounded experience of this splendid wilderness and include both guided driving and walking safaris as well as visits to a small village located in the vicinity of the camp, offering a rare experience of rural African culture. Game drives are offered during the day and at night, giving visitors the opportunity to explore a wide variety of South Luangwa’s spectacularly abundant fauna and flora.
Adventurous visitors may choose to partake in the popular three-night Kalamu Walking Trail – a truly unique way to explore Africa with a fully serviced walking safari along the western banks of the river. This exciting guided safari kicks off with a night at the Kalamu Camp, continues to the Kalamu Starbed Camp and ends with a night at the Chinengwe Riverbed Camp.
When not exploring wildlife on safari, guests can opt to enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool or relax on the deck, with a breathtaking vista of the lagoon, frequented by the many animals using it as a water source.
Renowned for its private location and personalized approach, Kalamu Lagoon Camp offers a truly special tented safari experience.
