Situated in Northern Kafue National Park,
created & designed with love by the
After 48 years of visiting the Kafue National Park as a family, the Geldenhuys family decided it was time to create a home for themselves on the banks of peaceful Kafue river.
Mapunga Bush Camp was born in 2016, a rustic camp with 600m river front on the banks of the Kafue River.
Home to the Geldenhuys family and a few wild neighbors – the Geldenhuys family begun spending as much time in this area as they could and decided it was time to share this little undiscovered paradise with other explorers.
Mapunga Bush Camp is the nearest campsite to the park entrance and one of two closest campsites to the Busanga plains making it ideal to explore the Kafue and the Busanga in one trip.
For many travel is undoubtedly a luxury that few can afford but being a family owned lodge, the Geldenhuys family have worked hard to make Mapunga accessible for all.
The Geldenhuys family look forward to sharing their love for the wildlife, fishing and area with you.
