In 1986, Kenneth Kaunda, the first President of Zambia, opened the famous Kapani Safari Lodge – Norman Carr’s pipe dream come true and final home in the South Luangwa National Park.
Kapani has since provided countless guests from across the world with authentic first-class safaris – from first-timers, safari experts, royalty and politicians to sport stars. We have all had wonderful experiences at Kapani and share many fond memories. However, following in the footsteps of Norman Carr, who always knew when to move forward and embrace change, we at Norman Carr Safaris have taken the decision to close Kapani’s doors to the public. From the 1st December 2015, Kapani Lodge will no longer host guests. She will, however, remain an integral part of the Norman Carr fabric, by being upgraded to our Company Operational Headquarters and stylish family Homestead. The Company will henceforth concentrate on the exclusive safari experiences that we offer in our famous Luangwa Valley bush camps, our wildly luxurious Chinzombo, and now in the remote Liuwa Plains National Park. Our reservations and sales team will be in touch over the coming weeks to answer any questions you may have. Rest assured that your clients – our guests – will continue to experience exactly what Norman Carr would have wanted – authentic world-class safari experiences, sharing and preserving the unique wilderness of the Luangwa Valley and the highest standards of service.
We thank you for all your support and look forward to a new chapter in the Company’s history.
From Dave and the whole Norman Carr Safaris Team
