The Hot Springs in Northen Zambia is an unforgetable experience. This was my Third visit and certainly is one of my favourite places in the world and I consider my self as a well travelled person. It is very remote in unspoiled nature it is about 14- 15 hours from the Lusaka international airport. It is not easy to reach so stay at least three nights to enjoy the experience! Lots of relaxing activities to do. Certainły visit Africa house or an photograpfic safari to Northern Luangwa Wildlife area. Mark and Mel Harvey are both excellent hosts that can assist you with you itirnerary. We shall certainly be back!!! 5 star experience in the remote bush of Africa@👍

We enjoyed some days out at Kapishya and had a great time. Glamping means we camped and ate at the lodge half board. We were treated like VIP guests and were spoiled by the lovely food and warmest atmosphere. The camping is situated at its best under trees and palms at the river shore and one can make use of the hot springs for free as often as you want, a real thermal bath resort, additionally situated in the loveliest environment. We come back!

Had a lovely three day stay in October -20. The chalets are well appointed with local details and decor, all set on premises that more resemble a tropical garden. The restaurant served among the best food we've had in Zambia, with influences from all corners of the world... thai, indian, italian, you name it. I think we tried most of the activities on offer; river rafting, hiking to the nearby rock paintings, visited the Africa House, got treatments at the spa, and of course splashed around in the hot spring. Never a dull moment! The owner Mr Harvey was a very nice acquaintance and regaled our dinners with interesting stories about growing up on the Shiwa estate, still very passionate about the subject even though the stories have probably been told hundredfold before us. Staying at Kapishya is not cheap, but very well worth it for a unique Zambian experience.

We stayed in family chalet for 2 nights.The lodge is beautiful ,well maintained,has spa and a resturant.There is a path leading to hotwater spring and one can enjoy it any time of the day (or night) We arrived here on a rainy evening , very tired and in low spirit as had encountered rain and very bad road.(D53).After check in we went to explore the hotspring,took a dip which immediately lifted our spirit.

We camped at Kapishya Hot Springs Lodge for a few days and really enjoyed it. Location is absolutely beautiful and staff is extremely nice. What we liked most is the helpful attitude of the Mark, the owner. With our car, we had "very far" to go with "very little" fuel left in our tank and we were short on cash. Mark helped us out with everything (cash, fuel and the roads). Good service is one thing, but genuinely having your best interest at heart (which goes beyond good service) is something you find very rarely at guest houses. At Kapishya, we found that. We will definitely come back and already look forward to it.
