The Luangwa River Camp is something special. Situated on the banks of the Luangwa River, the lodge faces out onto an oxbow lagoon in the 9050 square kilometre South Luangwa National Park. The views are superb as wildlife often come to the lagoon and river to quench their first, giving you a first-hand view of proceedings. There is an open plan lounge and dining area, giving you the opportunity to wine and dine under the stars. And how could we forget the infinity pool which offers a welcome respite from the heat of day.
And with just five chalets, the lodge ensures an intimate and exclusive getaway with a maximum of 10 guests. Each chalet is individually named so you can choose from Mwala, Mazi, Merzi, Moto and Ziko. Choose from twin or double beds, depending on your preference, and each chalet comes with a well-appointed bathroom with a shower and sunken bathtub. And each chalet has an expansive outside deck with private boma that provides great views over the river and park.
Spot game drinking from the lagoon and along the Luangwa River from the comfort of your private deck. The walking safaris recreate the sense of 'wildest Africa' as you track animals across rivers and through the bush. This gives you the amazing opportunity to see, smell, hear and feel Africa on foot. It is 100% safe and you will be accompanied at all times by an experienced and armed ranger. In addition, you can go on morning and afternoon game drives in the South Luangwa National Park, one of Africa's greatest game reserves.
