Safari accommodation located in the heart of South Luangwa Park

Base yourself at the lively Luangwa River Camp for an authentic bush experience on the border of the famous South Luangwa National Park where several luxury lodges offer top-class Zambian wilderness accommodation. Luangwa River Camp offers all the mod cons of a city lodge without the people and the noise, just the added bonus of an untamed wilderness setting and the opportunity to see wildlife at every waking hour. 

Attentive and friendly staff look after all guests and the extraordinary attention to detail in the accommodation ensures your memorable safari holiday in nature. Explore the riverbank on foot or venture further out on game drives to see the big game with your passionate game ranger and tracker. 

Luangwa River Camp is unlike any other bush lodge in these parts thanks to its special position on the Luangwe River and innovative architecture. Each of the five solid brick and thatch suites is raised nearly two metres above the vegetation to make the best of the views over the park and flowing water and to reduce its impacts on living things. 

Each suite has its own name and is decorated accordingly with double or twin beds, hot showers, large sunken bathtubs and stunning private decks. Wander down to the sunken infinity swimming pool on two levels in the main guest area also features a waterfall between the two pools. Enjoy this open-plan meeting section of the camp where guests dine, read, sip a drink and chat while game viewing all the while. Set off during thrilling days on bush picnics, river safaris, guided walks and game drives then return for mouth-watering foods and drinks again.

The stunning Luangwa River Camp borders the world-renowned South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley and it’s a haven of sheer bushveld bliss looking out over the Luangwa Wafwa, a wildlife-rich area.  The great meandering Luangwa River is the lifeblood of this valley with its natural oxbow lagoons, riverine-supported woodlands and large plains, all of which harbour a massive concentration of game and prolific birdlife. 

See elephants, hippos, giraffes, buffalo, lions and leopards here from your private deck with its huge sliding doors that lead into a romantic interior with a soft bed, hot shower and delightful sunken bathtub looking into the wilds. Soak up all of this riverine wealth from these five solid brick and thatched suites sprawling out along the river banks to take in the floodplain views. Stroll down to the central area to enjoy the dazzling plunge pool split into two with a waterfall and chill out on the deck with a cold drink from the open plan bar. 

It’s all designed on an innovative split-level deck designed for the environment around it and guests gather in the evenings around the boma fire to chat and enjoy the stars. The river camp is optimally located for easy access into the South Luangwa Park across the river and wildlife sightings are very fulfilling. 

Make Luangwa River Camp your friendly and luxury base for all your South Luangwa National Park safaris and tours so that you are guaranteed an authentic bush experience. The best part about a holiday in this region is the walking trails – Zambia is indeed the country for walking out on safari and learning so much more about the world around you. Entrust yourself to the care of your game ranger as you explore the riverbank on foot or venture further out on game drives to see the big game.
