Camping in Kafue National Park

About a 5-hour drive from Lusaka and 4 hours from Livingstone, Hippobay Camp is the only camp on Lake Itezhi Tezhi in Kafue National Park.


HippoBay Campsite is the ideal place to relax on Lake Itezhi Tezhi.

You can relax overlooking the lake, which glows silver in the midday sun, with the striking remains of the trees that once thrived on these plains and which are a perch for several fish eagles. 

Although Musa Gate is only a 20-minute drive away, you will feel isolated in this corner of Eden, amidst fully relaxed Puku, dozens of crested guinea fowl and, of course, the song of hippos.

Electricity is not available, but at the nearby Konkamoya Lodge, you can charge batteries and buy ice.

At Itezhi Tezhi village you can find all kinds of groceries and fresh fish from the lake, there is a 24-hour petrol station and an ATM to withdraw money.
