Minor Hotels signs Anantara Kafue River Tented Camp

The luxury property will launch in 2025 in Kafue National Park

Currently in the early stages of development, Anantara Kafue River Tented Camp will be located on the banks of the Kafue River, suspended 3.5 metres above the ground.

The new camp will be approximately a three-hour drive from Victoria Falls or the capital Lusaka, or a short helicopter ride. With 12 luxury tents, including a 600sq m Presidential Villa, the camp is bookended by two islands that will also include a spa and wellness area with a swimming pool, a restaurant and bar, a lounge and a traditional African boma.

Anantara Kafue River Tented Camp is owned by Agro Safari, a division of a Zambian company with a legacy spanning generations. The partnership with Minor Hotels brings to life a vision shared by both entities.

Each tent will be strategically spaced for privacy and to maximise immersion in the bush and surrounding landscapes and will have its own plunge pool and the use of a boat and skipper. 

Experiences will include canoeing, fishing, birdwatching, boat safaris and wildlife encounters.

Kafue National Park is located in the centre of Western Zambia and is one of the largest reserves in all of Africa, covering 8,650 square miles.

The resort will embrace eco-friendly features,  including harnessing solar energy, using sustainable wood and ensuring equilibrium between development and the preservation of the natural environment.


Anantara Kafue River Tented Camp will also operate as a community-driven endeavour, from engaging local businesses in the supply chain to employing a majority Zambian staff, the camp aims to become “a beacon of community empowerment and cultural celebration”.
