Lion Camp is situated in the northern most part of the South Luangwa National Park. It’s prime location, well away from the park gates, allows it to offer you an authentic safari experience with fewer vehicles and plentiful game viewing. The lagoon in front of the lodge draws in game right to your doorstep so you need not go far in search of animals. Lion Camp is easily accessible by daily flights from Lusaka to Mfuwe followed by a 3 hour transfer to the camp, most of which is a game drive through the South Luangwa National Park.
- Lion Camp is located on the banks of an oxbow lagoon, attracting a variety of game
- Secluded location in the northern corner of South Luangwa Park
- Offers day and night game drives and walking safaris
- Flexible game-viewing programme, due to the high ratio of vehicles to guest tents.
All tents have a ‘tree house’ like design and are raised above the Luangwa valley floor with magnificent panoramic views of the oxbow lagoon. You can roll up the netting to open up the room to further enjoy the expansive views from the comfort of your room.
There are eight Luxury tents and two Deluxe tents with thatched roofs and canvas walls. Both are of similar design but the Deluxe tents are larger with a bigger deck and outdoor bath making them ideal for families or honeymoon couples.
There are generally two activities a day and game drives, special interest safaris, walking safaris, bird watching are all on offer. Qualified guides will take you out on day or night game drives in open Landrovers and walking safaris are accompanied by an armed scout and expert guide.
