South Luangwa National Park


Lion Camp Location Map

Lion Camp is a stylish, unique and independent lodge situated in a remote part of the South Luangwa National Park, with abundant and uncongested game viewing on the doorstep. Lion Camp is also distinguished by its friendly staff, personalised service and excellent food.

Located 40 km upstream from the main Mfuwe Gate, and on the banks of an oxbow lagoon or 'wafwa', which retains a small amount of water all year, the lodge looks out onto open grassland. By day the plain is frequented by grazing mammals, and by night it becomes a hunting ground for lions.

All safari activities are led by qualified guides who will educate and enlighten you in the secrets of the Park. Game drives are conducted in open Land Rovers. Walking safaris are accompanied by an experienced and armed escort scout.

An infinity swimming pool, lower deck with sun loungers, central bar and fireplace are located in the main lodge area, along with a library and small shop. 

Mealtimes at Lion Camp are social occasions and are highly convivial, with fabulous food and plenty of stories from your Lion Camp hosts. Lunch is buffet style, and the evening meal is plated.

Lion Camp has 8 luxury suites. with canvas walls and a thatch room. During the day, the netting at the front of the tent can be tied back to access a shaded private deck directly from the bedroom. Bathrooms are off to the side to provide more privacy, whilst ensuring an unobstructed view out. Evening breeze cooling units have been installed for maximum comfort in the hotter months. These units along with the rest of the camp are solar-powered.

The 2 private deluxe suites maximise the prime locations at the end of the camp.They are similar in design to the luxury suites but are larger and have secluded outdoor bathtubs. The Lagoon Suite can be either twin or double and an extra bed can be added to accommodate a young child. The Sunset Suite is the honeymoon suite. It has one king-size bed and a large wrap-around deck with 180 degree views of the plain. It is the furthest suite from the main area of the camp and its seclusion makes it perfect for honeymoon couples.

In line with the its sustainability ethos, this initiative not only neutralises the carbon footprint of Lion Camp's operations but supports the protection of the forests around the national park, benefitting local communities as well as the wildlife inhabiting these areas.
