Luangwa River Camp
South Luangwa National Park, Zambia - Classic 4
Luangwa River Camp lies on the banks of the Luangwa River forming the border of the world renowned South Luangwa National Park in Zambia and marks the end of the Great Rift Valley. It is perhaps one of the few last unspoilt wilderness areas and one of the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa and covers an area of over 9,000 sq. km.
The ox bow lagoons, Miombo woodland and plains of the Luangwa Valley host vast concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo, wild dog and the puku, endemic to the region. The area also boasts over 400 species of birds.
Nestled under an ancient ebony grove and overlooking the Wafwa Oxbow Lagoon, lies the intimate and exclusive owner-run Luangwa River Camp, accommodating a maximum of five couples at any one time.
