Three Rivers Camp is an essential add-on to Kafunta Safaris and is found at the confluence of three rivers, the Luangwa, the Luzangazi and the Kapamba Rivers, in one of the most fertile parts of the magnificent South Luangwa National Park. This brand-new accommodation is a new luxury venue for guests seeking a superb private safari on three rivers where wildlife sightings remain unmatched. Only 2 hours from Kafunta River Lodge, and 7km upriver from Island Bush Camp, you can include Three Rivers Camp in a tour of all three Kafunta Safaris destinations.
Voyage2Africa recommends Three Rivers for its life-changing setting, excellent hospitality and wealth of wildlife in a park revered for its commitment to conservation and community. Besides the almost extinct rhino, the park is bursting with 60 different animals and some 400 bird species.
Discover Thornicroft’s giraffe, endemic to South Luangwa – see their trademark white legs and white faces. Find Crawshay’s zebra without the brownish ‘shadow-stripe’ of the common (Burchell’s) zebra and the tiny puku, rarely seen outside Zambia. Wild dogs, huge herds of zebra and elephants too.
Stay in one of 5 luxury private tents on elevated platforms and sleep under the stars. Plenty of space, elegant natural décor, indoor and outdoor showers, a comfy seating area and large windows to view the three rivers constantly. Enjoy your private deck at all times, a raised area with luxury day beds made especially for sleeping under the stars, under a cosy mosquito net.
It’s a seasonal camp offering thrilling game drives, bush walks, and a great walk between the Three Rivers and Island Bush Camp camps. Drive across the reserve during the day to find the wildlife and admire the breath-taking scenery. See very few tourists in this park, where animals remain wild and unused to seeing 4×4 vehicles. This also adds excitement to enticing bush walks with experienced game rangers and trackers. No children under 12 on bush walks. Accommodation of the highest safari standards to be sure!
So much energy, so much water, so much fertile land and so many wild species – this is Three Rivers Camp, the newest edition to the Kafunta Safaris group and one that suits real nature lovers. Find it literally on the confluence of the Luangwa, the Kapamba and the Lusangazi Rivers, a place of fertility and grand wildlife sightings, birds and trees. Each of the 5 tented suites offers day beds on private decks, for the opportunity of sleeping out under the stars on this star bed every night. Listen to the sounds of nature as you sleep better than you ever do at home.
Each tent offers inside and outside showers, spacious interiors with lounges and large beds, elegant furnishings and ethnic natural décor. This is an owner-run safari business which adds that personal touch and meals are excellent, created by talented chefs in true safari fashion and a touch of Zambian authenticity. The staff team are sourced from nearby communities and has trained in all the Kafunta camps and lodges including Kafunta River Lodge and Island Bush Camp.
Voyage2Africa recommends a combined safari from Three Rivers to Island Bush Camp and ending at the amazing Kafunta River Lodge which was once the home of the owners. Warm and personalised game drives, bush walks and birding excursions add huge value to your safari in Luangwa Park. Responsible tourism needs all the help it can get and just by staying here, your contribution is already recorded – Kafunta supports three community projects dedicated to environmental education, conservation and community upliftment.
Voyage2Africa can take you to South Luangwa as part of a major Zambian tour where going on safari to Kafue and Lower Zambezi National Park are main drawcards too.
