Kafunta Safaris' newest camp is almost ready for the new season. Here's a look back at a couple of very happy guests and their stay as one of the first guests:
Three Rivers Camp wasn’t quite what we expected as we became their second and third guests, back in May 2017. We’d anticipated that it would be in a nice area and be built to a high standard but little did we expect such a gorgeous little camp in a simply stunning location!
As the name suggests, the property has been built at the confluence of three rivers – the Kapamba, the Lusangazi and the Luangwa itself, providing wonderful views throughout the day and especially at sunset.
The five guest rooms are a real treat – roomy, airy and stylishly decorated. Our two favourite features were the private verandah (made all the better by the clink of ice in a cold G&T) and the day-bed / star-bed that’s on a raised platform, joining every room. Due to the fenced walkway along the 15 feet between the main room and the raised platform, if you do get nervous in the middle of the night, you can simply slip back down to the stairs to your main bedroom!
Game in the area is plentiful, although some early reports mentioned it being a little skittish at times, perhaps reflecting the area’s former hunting status. But as the 2017 season progressed, the guestbook quotes attest to the wildlife calming down and high quality sightings were frequent.
