The Luwi River is tributary of the majestic Luangwa River and flows seasonally right from the heart of South Luangwa, forming many waterholes and lagoons in its bends and attracting a great variety of wildlife as a life giving water source. Perched on the edge of one of the Luwi’s lagoons, and shaded by giant mahogany trees is Luwi Bush Camp. With a truly magical isolated location, comfort and excellent service, this unique seasonal camp is a stunning choice for a special African safari. Each season, the four double or twin chalet rooms at the camp are built from natural materials – grass, bamboo and thatch.Read More

It’s these natural materials from this region that give this camp its special traditional feel, and it’s totally in step with the camp’s eco-friendly approach too. The rooms are earthy, yet comfy, with en suite open-air bathrooms that are shaded by trees. The service levels at Luwi Bush Camp are of the highest standard, and the delicious meals here are usually enjoyed outside. There’s also a shaded outside bar, and even afternoon teas in the bush – with great views of the surrounding fauna and flora.

An ideal and popular location for walking safaris, Luwi Bush Camp give visitors the rare opportunity to track game on foot, lead by experienced and knowledgeable guides. Game drives are also conducted as the camp’s guides aim to offer visitors sightings of rare wildlife like eland, hartebeest, roan antelope and reed buck. But apart from these animals, famously elusive and rare in the park, many others are to be seen, including lion, hippo, elephant, giraffe, zebra, wild dog, as well as many bird species.

A hide overlooking a lagoon is a special lookout point where visitors get to see animals up close – a perfect location for enjoying sundowners after an adventure filled day. What’s more, the bright starry nights at the campfire here are especially memorable.

With friendly staff, a unique remote location, authentic African feel and great wildlife viewing opportunities, Luwi Bush Camp is an ideal destination for an unforgettable African safari.
