Mayukuyuku Bush Camp and Campsite is one of only four campsites situated inside Kafue National Park, situated on the banks of the Kafue River. It is an ideal location to access both the north and south of Kafue National Park.
Kafue Camps and Safaris Ltd was created in 2006 to meet the safari needs of visitors wishing for an excellent wildlife safari experience whilst also maintaining ethical principles by employing the local people and promoting conservation. It is a majority Zambian owned company, so revenue is ploughed back into the country. Guests can also purchase locally produced crafts in the gift shop, with confidence that the money is going to the artist.
The camp is surrounded by a lightly wooded tree line and the Kafue riverbank. The park has large, shady trees to camp beneath and the views both upstream and downstream are magnificent. Fishing from the banks plus launching of boats is both safe and easy. The rapids upstream provide a wonderful sundowner drinks location.
Mayukuyuku Bush Camp and Campsite offers full board with a fully stocked bar. The craft and curio shop stocks items made in communities around the park, Lusaka and also from other areas of Southern Africa. The campsite is equipped with hot showers and flush toilets.
Activities include guided game-viewing in open vehicles, walking safaris with a guide and armed scout and fishing and game-viewing by boat. Alternatively you can hire a wildlife guide who will accompany you in your own vehicle for a drive (one a day or longer) if booked in advance.
