Situated in the Luamfwa Concession in South Luangwa National Park, Kalamu Tented Camp takes its name from the adjacent Chankalamu River, a sesonal tributary of the Luangwa.
The camp overlooks a well -used crossing point on the Luangwa River. The deeper pools of the river and a nearby seasonal lagoon hold large pods of hippo and crocodiles. These waters attract elephant, buffalo, puku, impala, yellow baboon and other species.
Kalamu consists of four Meru- style en-suite tents, each one with a different river outlook.
The central area of the camp- the plunge pool and deck and shadded bar and dining area- maximise the sweeping river views. A deck built into a fallen fig tree provides an unsual lookout point. Heating and lighting is from solar power.
Activities at Kalamu focus on the Luangwa River with both game drives and walks exploring its banks, fringing woodland and open scrub.
