Lion Camp is situated on the banks of an oxbow lagoon in a remote region of South Luangwa National Park and overlooks an open grassland. By day the plain is frequented by grazing mammals, and by night it becomes a hunting ground for lions.
Lion Camp has nine canvas and thatch chalets built on raised wooden platforms, accommodating a maximum of 18 guests. A raised wooden boardwalk links the chalets with the main area. Each chalet has either a four poster king-size double bed or twin beds, and a walk-in mosquito net. They are all en-suite with a shower and toilet, and have private decks overlooking the open plain in front.
Since there are no fences, the wildlife moves freely through the lodge grounds. Elephant, hippo, bushbuck and other antelope are regularly seen in the camp and there are healthy populations of lion, leopard, buffalo and giraffe in the immediate area.
The main area includes an infinity swimming pool, lower deck with sun loungers, central bar and fireplace, along with a library and small shop. The interiors are rich with fresh and vibrant colours.
Mealtimes are social occasions here, with fabulous food and plenty of stories from your Lion Camp hosts. The set menu is varied and healthy and all food is prepared on site from fresh ingredients by a team of talented Zambian chefs.
