Luwi Camp

Luwi Bush Camp is one of the South Luangwa’s first remote bush camps and lies deep in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park on the dynamic seasonal Luwi River.

This rustic camp is nestled in the shade of huge mahogany trees close to a permanent hippo and crocodile filled lagoon, with great views over a floodplain to the Luwi riverbed and beyond. The area is extremely remote with no other camps or people for miles around.

The five traditional huts made of grass, bamboo and thatch, are built each season, blend into the bush and are simple yet extremely comfortable. The en-suite facilities are open to the sky and very spacious with a flush WC and showers with hot and cold running water.

The twin or double beds are under large mosquito nets, there are reed mats on the floor, rustic furniture and solid earth floors. One of the most traditional of bush camp, at Luwi daytime meals are served in the shade of the mahogany trees, and dinner is taken under the stars accompanied by the many sounds of the Zambian night. There is a small thatch canopy providing shade over the bar and lounging area where guests get to relax and watch the wildlife roam by.
