Interwoven around a grove of towering mahogany trees, Luwi Camp is an artfully constructed and eco-friendly camp in South Luangwa National Park.
Accommodations at the camp consist of only five thatched chalets for up to ten guests. There is a choice between double and twin beds made with luxurious feather-top mattresses. The open air en suite bathrooms feature a sink, plenty of hot and cold running water, a romantic outdoor shower, and a flush toilet. The front walls of some of the tented suites are open so the light and airy rooms flow into the private veranda with comfortable seating and stunning wild views of the bush.
The camp overlooks the seasonal Luwi sand river in South Luangwa National Park, a world-famous wildlife haven. 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. The 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. There are about 400 bird species recorded in the Park.
