New Kalala Camp
(6 rondavels) Contact ZTNB for bookings; address: Kafue National Park South, PO Box 23, Itezhi–Tezhi (GPS: NEWKAL)
New Kalala is just south of the dam wall, overlooking the lake from a stunning perch on a rock kopjie. With green grass and the odd baobab amongst the rocks, it's a good place to camp. Alternatively, its thatched chalets and rondavels all have en-suite facilities (flush toilet and hot shower), and are fairly clean, but very dated and basic.
You can either bring food to cook for yourselves, or order meals at the lodge – but I wouldn't want to rely on the catering here. The camp is built around large granite rocks where you'll see the odd rock dassie scurry, and it has a swimming pool that is sometimes filled with water.
