Puku Ridge Camp

South Luangwa National Park


Puku Ridge Camp Location Map

Puku Ridge Camp lies nestled in a remote game rich area of South Luangwa National Park. This is a luxury camp with every comfort, yet it is intimate and friendly with just 8 tents and panoramic views over the abundant floodplain below,  offering the authentic safari experience that many people long for.

The camp offers a full range of game drives and night drives in the South Luangwa National Park using open 4x4 vehicles driven by a knowledgeable guide. The region is abundant with elephants, lions, wild dogs, buffalos, hippos, wildebeests and antelopes – many of which will also be easily spotted as you lounge on your balcony or eat dinner.

The Park can also be explored on foot with park rangers and tracking guides, offering a chance to see some of the more elusive animals, such as leopards, the genet cats, and honey badgers.

Afternoons are spent relaxing in the camp's large living area inbetween game actvities. Listen out for the Puku antelope whistling to one other when there is danger in the air. When evening arrives, make your way to the central dining area for a delectable gourmet meal in the bush, or order dinner on your own private deck for a romantic night under the stars.

The camp has 8 identical rooms comprising of canvas, thatch and decking all overlooking the beautiful Puku Ridge floodplain and its seemingly endless parade of wildlife.

Watch the beautiful night sky and the sun rise from the star bed, elephants bathing from the comfort of your bath tub or plunge pool, perhaps even wild dogs making their way across the plains in pursuit of prey from your private viewing deck.
