LUANGWA RIVER CAMP

South Luangwa National Park
The South Luangwa National Park marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, one of the last remaining unspoiled wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It is through this that the great meandering Luangwa River runs with its lagoons, riverine supported woodlands and large plains, all of which play host to huge concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and over 450 species of birds. Luangwa River Camp is ideally situated opposite one of the most productive game areas of this part of the park with a unique access directly across the river either by boat or by vehicle depending on the time of year.
The camp is nestled under an ancient ebony grove on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking a game rich area known as the Luangwa Wafwa. This small and intimate camp with just five bush suites, along with its setting and location creates a real “wow” factor.
