Kutali Camp

An exclusive tented camp providing an authentic safari adventure along the Zambezi River in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park.

Kutali Camp, together with sister camp Chula Island Camp, offers one of safari Africa’s most genuine and authentic safari adventure experiences. Kutali is located on the vast Kulefu Island which is dominated by a forest of acacia winterthorn trees, regularly visited by herds of elephants. The style of the camp and the potential focus on walking may immediately limit the appeal to many visitors to Africa, but for those seeking a bit of adventure with superb guiding, a fun and friendly communal camp atmosphere, plenty of walking and a genuine ‘close to nature’ wildlife experience, this operation is a real gem. Owners Luke Evans and Kyle Branch have a real passion for the bush, and their team is offering an experience that is no longer widely available in Africa.


Accommodation is for a maximum of 10 guests in five rectangular lightweight fly camp tents, especially designed with three sides entirely made of gauze allowing for excellent visibility. There are roll down ‘windows’ should the weather…


The Lower Zambezi National Park follows the northern banks of the mighty Zambezi River and offers a wonderful mix of miombo, mopane and acacia woodland interspersed with open plains and thick riverine forest…


Kutali Camp would be a great choice for adventurous families with older children. Although the camp accepts children over the age of eight years (unless it is taken exclusively) there is a minimum age restriction of 14 years…
