South Luangwa National Park provides Zambia's widest array of accommodation. There are luxury lodges, some of them semi-permanent depending on the seasons as well as bush camps, some more mobile than others! And no trip is complete without enjoying a walking safari with an experienced guide and setting up camp in a different spot every night amongst the sounds of the bush.
Overlooking water holes and in the welcome shade of towering mahogany trees, Bilimungwe Bushcamp and its 4 thatched rooms is the perfect marriage of opulence and safari.
One of the most luxurious camps from Norman Carr Safaris, Chinzombo in the Luangwa valley was designed by award-winning architects, Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens. It truly astounds with its unique touches. Relax by the pool or around the fire pit on the deck as Africa's wildlife comes to you.
The family-friendly Tafika Lodge is located just outside the Nsefu Sector of South Luangwa in Zambia and has some of the finest leopard viewing in Zambia. It offers a truly intimate experience since there is only space for six couples.
Chikoko Tree Camp
Situated in the South Luangwa National Park, along the west bank of the Luangwa River, Chikoko Trails Camps consists of two private camps: Chikoko Tree Camp and Crocodile River Camp.
Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge
Once a private retreat for the President, Sanctuary Chichele Lodge allows you to live like a king in a quite spectacular setting, picturesquely perched atop a hill with wonderful vistas of the fertile Luangwa River and a collection of teeming wildlife.
Sanctuary Puku Ridge Camp
Sanctuary Puku Ridge Camp is a chance to share an unobtrusive intimacy with the wild, especially with the rare and skittish puku antelope after which the camp is named.
Luangwa Safari House
Luangwa Safari House is a unique offering from Robin Pope Safaris in the 9050 sq km South Luangwa National Park. Resembling a castle, the private house caters for a maximum of eight guests and comes with a chef and house manager.
Crocodile River Camp
Crocodile River Camp forms part of the Chikoko Trails Camps in the remote South Luangwa National Park. It offers three twin chalets beneath a grove of spectacular Muchenja (Ebony) trees.

Nsolo Bush Camp
Set on a bend of the Luwi River, Nsolo Bush Camp is one of the most remote camps in the South Luangwa wilderness. This allows for few passable roads, which means most game-viewing is done on walking safaris. With only 4 chalets dotting the riverbank, guests are guaranteed privacy and seclusion.
Luangwa River Camp
With just five individually decorated chalets, Luangwa River Camp caters for a maximum of 10 guests in an untouched corner of the majestic South Luangwa National Park. So you will only be sharing this paradise with wild animals.

Nkwali Safari Camp
Resting on the banks of the Luangwa River, whose opposite side makes up part of the South Luangwa National Park, Nkwali Safari Camp offers private game-viewing on its land as well as direct access to the park by boat or pontoon.
Mchenja Bush Camp
The only Zambian bush camp that stays open in February and March, you can visit Mchenja during the dry or wet season. Get up close and personal with wild animals on walking trails through the bush or boat trips down the Luangwa River.
Tena Tena Lodge
Flanked by the Luangwa River and a complex lagoon system, Tena Tena Lodge calls the 900,000ha South Luangwa National Park home.
