Luwi Camp, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Situated deep in the heart of the National Park, on the seasonal Luwi River, after which it is named, the area is extremely remote with no other camps or people for many miles around. Luwi was originally sited by Norman in the early 1980s. In the early days guests shared a long drop toilet and two bucket showers!

Nowadays the rooms melt into the surrounding grove of ancient mahogany trees that line the banks of the Luwi sand river; guests sleep on the finest feathertop beds and shower under the stars in open ensuite bathrooms.

There is a large lagoon close to camp; this permanent water source attracts wildlife from far and wide making the camp area constantly busy with animals.

The Luwi area is famous for its lions and wild dogs and the thrill of tracking them on foot is an experience not to be missed. Combine walks with game drives and explorations upriver to find the elusive Roan antelope or reedbuck, eland and hartebeest. Watch the sunset over a landscape unchanged for thousands of years.
