Lion Camp is a hidden gem, if it isn’t on your bucket list yet, it should be…
Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park is one of the best places in Africa for an authentic wilderness safari. Lion Camp is located in the northernmost reaches of the park, being away from the park gates we provide a safari with abundant game viewing and few other vehicles.
South Luangwa National Park
At 9050 square kilometres South Luangwa National Park is Zambia’s second largest national park.
Situated at the end of the Great Rift Valley, the steep banks of the Muchinga Escarpment form the park’s western boundary and the Luangwa River forms most of the eastern boundary, with the exception of the Nsefu and Luamfwa sectors.
Flowing for over 800km from its source in the remote hills of North Eastern Zambia into the Zambezi, the Luangwa River is the lifeblood of the Luangwa valley. As it winds along the valley floor creating oxbow lagoons and open plains, alluvial deposits have resulted in rich soils capable of supporting high quality grassland, woodland and forest.
This environment is capable of sustaining huge concentrations of game and the park hosts 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species.
The South Luangwa National Park is not just an animal refuge, but a living, breathing ecosystem – carefully preserved and fiercely protected, no hunting is allowed within its boundaries.
In the absence of fences, game moves freely through the camp. With a healthy population of lion, leopard, buffalo and giraffe in the immediate area, and elephant, hippo, bushbuck and antelope regularly seen within the camp, you will not be disappointed.
The main area is spacious and airy. The hub of camp is a well-stocked bar and our boma is a draw for chilly mornings and for sharing after dinner stories around the fire. The pool is a central feature of the large front deck which provides a perfect game viewing platform whilst also appealing to both day-time sun worshippers and night-time star gazers.
There are a variety of areas to relax and unwind and we sell a range of gifts – all made locally and of the highest quality – perfect mementos from a memorable stay.
Game drives are conducted in open vehicles; in general you cover more ground on a game drive, and due to the fact that you can get much closer to wildlife in a vehicle, they often provide the best opportunities for photography.
Night drives are a feature in South Luangwa, they allow you to see nocturnal animals and the behaviour that often takes place after dark, such as leopard and lion hunts. The afternoon game drive continues into the night after a ‘sundowner’ and brings you back to camp in time for a well-earned drink and dinner.
South Luangwa is known for excellent walking safaris, which are a very different option to game drives; they bring you in touch with the wilderness and focus on the eco-system of the bush. It is genuinely breathtaking striding out in country where you are on the same footing as a lion or elephant.
