Three Rivers Camp

Three Rivers Camp

Three Rivers Camp is the latest addition to the Kafunta Safaris’ portfolio and is set at the confluence of the Luangwa, Kapamba and Lusangazi Rivers in South Luangwa, Zambia. The stylish tents lay under shady sausage trees and are facing either the Luangwa River or the game-rich lagoon.

“Wilderness in Style”

Sitting in the cozy chairs near the dining area, you will have boundless views of the Luangwa River and the Kapamba River, with their white beaches where hippos love basking in the sun. Or choose to rest on the plush day beds on top of your private viewing deck and observe giraffes and waterbucks strolling down to the lagoon. Bordering the national park, the area around camp is unspoiled and teeming with wildlife and offers unrivalled game viewing.

Three Rivers Camp is located approximately 2 hours South of Kafunta River Lodge and a mere 7 km North of Island Bush Camp, with the option of walking between both bush camps – an experience we strongly recommend.

Stylish Tents with an Earthy Feel

Three Rivers Camp is exquisitely intimate with only 5 spacious tents, elegantly decorated with natural materials and earthy hues. They have large gauzed windows embracing extensive views of the Luangwa River and the nearby lagoon. Each tent has its own wooden deck with comfy chairs to enjoy the surrounding vistas.

The en-suite bathrooms include indoor and outdoor showers, double sinks and flushing toilets.

Night Skies and Star Beds

The distinctive feature of each guest room is its private elevated platform, safely connected to the tent for convenient access day and night. Ready with plush beds, the platform lets you absorb the stunning views during the day or sleep under the stars surrounded only by the sights and sounds of the African bush.

Camp Area

The dining lounge is discreetly set on the banks of the river, with a welcoming bar and relaxing chairs. Observe the many hippos and crocodiles basking on the beaches ahead, and keep your camera at hand to capture the swift African Skimmer or colorful bee-eater. After dinner enjoy the fireplace while looking up at the millions of stars, or listen to lions roaring in the distance.

With the same upscale standards as Kafunta River Lodge  our kitchen provides delicious meals, with sumptuous buffets for brunch and elegant dinners served at a candlelit table by the river.

Activities

We offer game drives in the South Luangwa National Park along with bush walks around the camp area and down the river banks. Encounter elephants, giraffes, waterbuck, and maybe the relatively rare roan antelope with a chance to also spot lions, leopards or wild dogs. Short night drives are also offered before returning to camp for dinner.

Should you combine Three Rivers Camp with Island Bush Camp, you can decide to walk between the camps while your bags will be transferred separately.

Three Rivers Camp is seasonal and is open from 25 May to 1 November.
