Luangwa River Camp

Area description

The South Luangwa National Park is located at the end of the Great Rift Valley and is one of the last remaining unspoiled wilderness places in Africa. The enormous meandering Luangwa river rus, with its oxbow lagoons, riverine supported woods, and large grasslands, all of which play host to huge concentrations of game such as elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo, and over 450 kinds of birds.

The Luangwa River Camp is located beneath an ancient ebony forest on the banks of the Luangwa River, overlooking the game-rich Luangwa Wafwa. With only five bush suites, this small and intimate camp, combined with its setting and location, provides a remarkable "wow" impact, and a romantic vibe simply flows through the camp.
