About Kapani Lodge

Kapani Lodge is situated on a large lagoon beside the Luangwa River in Zambia.

Although the Mfuwe area is busier than other areas of the park, it is still quiet compared with many other National Parks in Africa. The advantage of the tradition of camps in this area and the presence of people is that game sees the area as safe and is present in very high densities. Game viewing in the area is by vehicle, and South Luangwa is one of the few National Parks which allows night drives.

Norman Carr
Norman Carr is a conservation legend in the Luangwa Valley. He pioneered walking safaris in the Zambian bush in the 1950s and is widely regarded as the father of walking safaris. He spent over 50 years devoting himself to the development of the South Luangwa National Park. Norman built Kapani Lodge in 1986 and lived there until his death in 1996. Norman has probably been more influential in developing conservation policies and a wildlife tourism industry in Zambia than any other individual.
