This was our second trip staying at Bushcamp Company properties but our first at Kapamba and we loved it! We had really high expectations and were not disappointed. As we expected, and others have said, the camp staff, food & guides & game viewing were wonderful!
I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's something special to us about this particular camp. Perhaps it's the openess of our quarters - there's no real door, just metal grating that is closed during the night which gives a feeling of being outdoors but safe & comfortable.... Or maybe it was the 'resident' elephant :)
The cabin/room is smallish compared to Bilimungwe & Chindeni but was nicely layed out & the space is efficient & Bili and Chindeni accomodations are really almost overly spacious - for us anyway.
If/when we return, Kapamba will be a first choice of which of the bushcamps to stay at - no doubt.
