A beautiful and tranquil campsite with lush green grass next to the Zambezi River. Safe and secure. Easy access from the main road connecting Malawi and Zimbabwe. Fuel station and Shoprite on route, no need to head into Tete city.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Best place to stay around Tete. Great facility’s. Really great pool. Nice outdoor kitchen with nice and clean fridge you can use. An really nice place to stay and relax for a few days especially when you are the only one. Firewood for free.
You can also rent some new renovated houses with a luxury standard.
For now it is a bit difficult to find the location because there are no signs.
Very nice campsite with great pool and braai area.Manger here is very helpful. Great river views with Hippos calling at night.Report Check-In
Probably the best campsite we’ve stayed at in our 3 month overlanding trip. Beautiful, peaceful setting on the banks of the Zambezi, drifting to sleep with the sounds of the river, frogs and hippos was idyllic. Well designed and clean outdoor bathroom, kitchen and fire pit as well as a gorgeous swimming pool and lounger to relax. Beulah and Wynand were the perfect hosts, warm & welcoming, giving us tonnes of tips for Malawi and even tumble drying our clothes after we’d hand washed them. Would highly recommend staying here!Report Check-In
Kukutana campsite is the very best option around Tete. Next to the Zambezi river; no need to go through Tete town, but the city is 20 minutes drive away if you need to go shopping.
The campsite is big, green and shady. With a fantastic equipped outdoor kitchen (with firepit and bbq) next to the beautiful and clean swimming pool. The showers/toilets are very nice.
This is not only a perfect overlander-campsite, but it is the perfect place to stay for a bit longer and have a good rest. We stayed longer than planned.
There are also nice clean and modern chalets (airco !) available at very reasonable prices.
And laundry service !
Wynand and Beaulah are great hosts and will do everything to make your stay comfortable. They have a lot of info on Malawi (and can help making the bordercrossing much easier). Kukutana can only be found via Google Maps. Don't miss this fantastic campsite !
Not an official campsite as such but a wonderful place to camp on grass on the owners large property. Lots of shade under trees. Very well maintained. Beautiful swimming pool with view of the Zambezi. Beautiful clean bathrooms. Best place to stay around Tete.Report Check-In
Beautiful and quiet place with outstanding facilities.Report Check-In
We had a very nice stay at Kukutana Campsite near the city of Tete. You can camp with a fantastic view directly at the Zambezi river. The camping offers a swimming pool and a nice area to have braii, eat and relax.
The bathroom area as well was very clean and made with lots of lovely detaills.
There are also some bungalows to stay. The owners are so kind and friendly - we really loved to have some nice chats and coffee with them. They could also help us with some advice for our further travels.
We came without reservation but you can also text or call Beaulah in advance +258846323266
We definitely recommend staying there.
Beautiful newly built campsite, one of the nicest we have seen on our trip! Very clean ablutions, green grass, big fire place and braai area, outside kitchen and a nice pool overlooking the Zambezi. Very friendly South African owners, who want to make you feel at home. USD 10 pppn.
Far enough from town to have a quiet night (only hearing the frogs). Recommended!
