Snuggled against the banks of the Luangwa River and sheltered by a grove of ancient ebony trees, Luangwa River Camp provides an intimate safari experience in the game-rich South Luangwa National Park.
Accommodations at the camp consist of just five luxury bush suites. Each brick and thatch-roofed suite features a spacious bedroom affronted by large sliding glass doors. The lovely en suite bathrooms come with sunken bathtubs, double vanities, and spectacular views. Moreover, each suite enjoys its own private deck and sweeping river views.
The camp is located on the banks of the Luangwa River on Robin Pope Safaris’ private land outside South Luangwa National Park, a world-famous wildlife haven. The 5,623-square mile park enjoys a dense animal population including impalas, pukus, waterbucks, giraffes, and buffaloes grazing on the plains. A high number of leopards stalk the dense woodlands, while herds of elephant wade through the marshes and hippos play in the Luangwa River. The Muchinga Escarpment forms the park’s western and northwestern boundaries, sloping steeply down to the river from the west side. The river valley, continued to the west by the Lunsemfwa River valley, forms a natural barrier, and to this day there are no man-made roads spanning the valley.
