Luwi Bush Camp Location Map

Luwi Camp, nestled in the shade of huge mahogany trees, is situated deep in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park, very close to the seasonal Luwi River after which it is named. The area is extremely remote with no other camps or people for many miles around.

Due to the remote location it's the perfect camp for walking safaris. The wildlife in the area is prolific and memories of the experience of tracking big game on foot last a lifetime. Walks can be complemented by game drives and explorations upriver to discover the source of the Luwi or to find the elusive Roan antelope or reed buck, eland and hartebeest which are almost never see in other parts of the Park.

The Luwi area is famous for its lions and the thrill of tracking them on foot is an experience not to be missed. Typically your day will start early around the camp fire when you will discuss the noises and animals heard through the night. Your morning walking safari is likely to take 3 to 4 hours returning you to camp in time for a hearty brunch. You can then relax in the afternoon, before a further safari later in the day.

There is also a large hippo filled lagoon close by with a 'hide' for guests to watch the animals unnoticed high above the water. Walking safaris from camp usually finish here with sundowners, watching the sunset over a landscape unchanged for thousands of years. This permanent water source attracts wildlife from far and wide making the camp area constantly busy with animals.

The rooms, which are built each season using natural materials, blend into the bush and are simple yet extremely comfortable with en-suite bathrooms and 'all day' hot showers. With the emphasis on the use of natural materials in its construction, this camp is one of the most traditional of all of the Luangwa safari camps but still offers high levels of comfort and service.

Daytime meals are served in the shade of the mahogany trees, and dinner is taken under the stars accompanied by the many sounds of the Zambian night.
