Puku Ridge, South Luangwa

Located deep within the renowned wildlife haven of the South Luangwa, and overlooking a game-rich floodplain, Puku Ridge offers the definitive Zambia experience.

Newly redesigned, Puku Ridge blends wonderfully with its natural setting and overlooks an active waterhole. The lodge has just eight tents with indoor and outdoor showers, huge bathtubs and personal plunge pools. Spacious, multi-level verandas allow you to watch passing game from the comfort of your room. The main communal area features both an indoor and open-air lounge, as well as a campfire and viewing hide. Meals consist of fresh, creatively prepared dishes using ingredients sourced from local markets and paired with fine South African wines. Enjoy dining under the stars as you watch wildlife ambling over to drink from the adjacent waterhole.

Puku Ridge is the perfect base from which to enjoy the prolific wildlife of the South Luangwa region. Guests can choose from a variety of activities, including game drives in custom-built 4x4 safari vehicles, night drives and, of course, the famous Zambian walking safari. The guiding team here is award-winning and have an incredible knowledge of the region they work in, as well as impressive tracking skills.
