Norman Carr – the father of Zambian conservation and tourism built Kapani in 1986 and made it his home until his death in 1997; he had been in the Valley for over fifty years. In this time he earned the reputation across the continent as a tireless conservationist and was the founding father of photographic walking safaris and the concept of 'eco-tourism'. He wrote several books about the local area and the people and wildlife that live here. His legacy now continues to live through his family and dedicated staff – Kapani is still the home of the Carr family.
According to the season, dining is al fresco with dinner taken either on the terrace, the spacious deck, or by the swimming pool. Private dinners can also be arranged for guests seeking a little more seclusion.
