THE CAMP 

A stylishly tented piece of heaven, The Camp is located in the game-heavy central region of the South Luangwa National Park. Nestled under huge ebony trees on the banks of a broad section of the Luangwa River.

A friendly, relaxed atmosphere with sweeping river views that will seduce even the most seasoned safari-goer.

Between the baboons chattering above you in the beautiful ebony branches, and the herds of elephants who like to pop into camp for a visit, you’ll stay entertained throughout your unforgettable time here. The beautiful central lounge, built around a fallen ebony tree, is the perfect spot to share your sunrise coffee with other guests while you enjoy birds’ songs calling across the picturesque Luangwa River. Satisfy your palate with brunch in the shade of that charming lounge. Later in the day, enjoy a delicious dinner served on crisp white linens by the scenic river bank. Be sure to alert the staff if your trip includes a birthday or anniversary celebration, and let them pamper you with a special treat, like one of Chef’s delightful souffles! The attentive and pleasant staff is dedicated to accommodating your needs and ensuring your satisfaction, whether you’d like a romantic candlelit dinner set for two under a bright blanket of stars, or just need a cool towel to refresh you after a With only four uniquely spacious octagonal chalets, and one two-bedroom family unit, canvas and thatched chalets are as intimate as they are luxurious.

Recharge after the excitement of your afternoon drive in your uncluttered and meticulously maintained chalet, with its large honeymoon size bed gently draped in mosquito netting and private open air outdoor facilities featuring flush WC, basin and shower. And when you’re not using those open air facilities, the local monkeys will jump in and give you a show! If you’re in the mood for something more indulgent, have a soak and a sundowner in the Victorian-style bathtub with a charming view of the river through your own private screened window.

Guides at the camp are known for their dedication to both the guest experience and the wellbeing of the local wildlife. Whether you come across a herd of elephants or a pride of lions, their expert skill and calm response will ensure your safety and enhance your fun, while leaving the animals undisturbed. If you prefer to watch wildlife from the comfort of a hardtop Land Rover, you’ll enjoy it even more when you pause your adventure for a bit of tea and scrumptious cakes served on the hood of the vehicle. Evening drives are as exciting as those in the day, so you night owls will have plenty to keep you entertained. If you wish to view wildlife on foot, you won’t be disappointed by the educational experience, which might include a chat with your guide about the intricacies of the park’s ecosystem, learning to read animal tracks in the sand, or stepping within a few yards of raucous hippos. In addition to the ebony grove at camp there are other stunning groves close by, including majestic mahogany, that will impress you as much as the wildlife.
