Experience a Zambia Safari in the South Luangwa

Safari Awards - Best Value Safari Property Finalist 2015Enjoy the best Zambia safari experience with Kafunta Safaris. With unforgettable game viewing moments and personalised hosting we will ensure your dream safari comes true. The South Luangwa National Park is one of the great African parks and its unspoilt wilderness is teeming with wildlife.

You will experience all the comfort and excitement an African safari can offer, whether that be in the luxury of our classic safari lodge, Kafunta River Lodge, or the more rustic and adventurous wilderness camp, Island Bush Camp, or a combination of both. A Zambia safari lets you experience the essence of Africa.

We’ve been in the South Luangwa Valley for 20 years and we see it as our responsibility to protect and preserve it for the future. We instantly fell in love with the South Luangwa when we first came here and we have made it our home. Let us share our passion for the valley and the African bush with you.

Island Bush Camp

A rustic camp situated within the South Luangwa National Park on the banks of the Luangwa River in the true African wilderness.

We were blown away with the wildlife we saw in the first 15 minutes out in front of our cabin. We took a game drive into the park that first afternoon and realised our safari was going to be like living in an issue of National Geographic.

The food was tremendous, the location is beautiful, the wildlife was spectacular and the entire staff exceeded our expectations.
