South Luangwa Photo Safari – 5 Day
Lion Camp is a hidden gem located in the northernmost reaches of Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park; one of the best places in Africa for an authentic wilderness safari. Being away from the park gates, we provide safaris as they should be – abundant game viewing and few other vehicles.
The South Luangwa National Park is not just an animal refuge, but a living, breathing ecosystem – carefully preserved and fiercely protected. It is home to over 60 animal species and 400 bird species which all live off the Luangwa River – the lifeblood of the Luangwa Valley.
Easily accessible from Mfuwe Airport, Lion Camp operates between May and October in a pristine ecosystem and provides the perfect balance of authentic bush and luxurious comfort. Elevated above the Luangwa Valley floor with a ‘tree house’ aesthetic, our canvas and thatch suites connect to the main area with a central winding walkway. All the suites have spectacular panoramic views of the oxbow lagoon and feature a shaded private deck.
