South Luangwa National Park
The Luwi river system is renowned for its lion population. Various pride territories overlap and the cats use the dry river bed as a thoroughfare and a means not only of locating their prey which come to drink, but also of locating their rivals who must be warned to stay away. Wild dogs have denned around Nsolo for the last six years and chances of seeing these elusive creatures are high. Leopard also abound in the area. There are few African experiences more exciting than heading out on a walking safari early in the morning, having heard lions calling through the night, finding their fresh tracks and following them through the bush. With voices hushed and hearts beating your mind is suggesting there is a lion over every rise; this is big game viewing on foot at its best.
This “bush luxury” safari camp consists of five spacious chalets each on raised wooden decks with grass and reed walls and large, open air en-suite bathrooms. Each chalet runs on solar power and is set under the shade of evergreen trees with private verandahs overlooking the surrounding bush and waterholes in the Luwi River.
