Lukula Camp embodies the spirit of early African exploration, but with simple indulgences. It draws from the influences of Frederick Courteney Selous' camps of bygone days. He and his contemporaries would have found home and comfort here - a place to renew their spirits, document their discoveries and continue their intrepid ways. It is in this vein, that guests are welcomed into the stylish and authentic retreat of Lukula Camp.
There are no permanent structures in camp, and we have the ability to relocate each season, should we so desire. Our preferred campsites are on set on the Luwego River and spread out amongst a large shady riverine forest of acacia, tamarind, fig and sausage trees.
Four luxurious tents are set on the river's sandy banks, shaded by riverine forest. Each spacious tent is authentic, colourful and stylish with handcrafted campaign furniture made of recycled hardwoods and brass. Carpets and cushions of native fabrics soften the tents' spacious interiors. Each room has large comfortable beds, luxurious linen, full-length mirrors and standing fans. Off the dressing area, en-suite facilities feature large open- air bathrooms with bucket showers, flush toilets, washbasins and a vanity stand. Hot water is available upon request 24 hours a day. Tents are positioned with a beautiful view over the broad white sand banks and beyond to the Luwego River. The sights and sounds of hippo and plains game is a daily occurrence enjoyed from bed, from the canvas verandahs or whilst taking a piping hot morning or evening shower.
All meals are expertly prepared using wholesome, natural and local ingredients. Bread and cakes are baked fresh daily in the camp's 'Dutch' oven. For full day expeditions, lavish picnic boxes with cold drinks are provided. Special meals and dietary requirements can be catered for on request.
