LION CAMP, SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK

A WONDERFUL INSIGHT INTO LIFE IN THE LUANGWA VALLEY

Wild and remote game viewing defines the safari experience at Lion Camp, an intimate property tucked away amongst sausage and mahogany trees in the northern reaches of the South Luangwa.

Set in one of the most exclusive and wildlife-rich corners of Africa, it’s little surprise the game viewing around Lion Camp is exceptional. As its name might suggest, you can expect impressive lion sightings throughout the year and especially during the dry season, as well as leopard, wild dog, elephant and unique species like the Thornicroft’s giraffe and Crawshay’s zebra. Stretched along the side of an oxbow stream, the camp is unfenced and local wildlife are known to move freely about the property. Activities, which include bush walks, game drives and photographic safaris, are limited to four guests and led by a team of professional, enthusiastic guides.

The elevated main area features an impressive double-level plunge pool (complete with a connecting waterfall) as well as a dining room and open-plan bar with uninterrupted views into the national park.

The fabled South Luangwa is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries, brought to life by the pristine Luangwa River whose scenic oxbow lagoons and riverine woodlands support a huge variety of game. Elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe and hippo can all be spotted on your game drives and bushwalks, as well as hundreds of species of birds. During the Emerald Season, you’ll even be able to head out onto the lagoons to enjoy up-close game viewing by boat. Visits to the local village and school can also be arranged and offer a wonderful insight into life in the Luangwa Valley.
