Luangwa River Camp sits nestled under an ancient ebony grove on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking the game rich area known as the Luangwa Wafwa. This small and intimate camp with just five bush suites, along with its setting and location creates a real “wow” factor and a romantic feeling simply flows through the camp. The main area stretches over various elevated decked levels amongst which a tempting double plunge pool with a waterfall linking the two is situated. Seating areas around the pool or in the shade of the open plan bar on the highest level all offer uninterrupted views across the river and into the National Park.
The subtly decorated bush suites with brick walls and thatch roof each have ensuite bathrooms with sunken bathtubs looking out onto your own private corner of Africa. Both the bedroom and bathroom are afronted with large sliding doors leading onto a decked area allowing a lovely breeze into the room and great views onto the river.
The lodge has a resident chef who prepares delicious meals for the guests. Lunches are usually eaten with other guests while dinners are served privately for each couple or group of guests as required.
The small size of the lodge means there is a lot of flexibility as regards game viewing activities. Guests can enjoy game drives and walking safaris ranging from half day excursions to full day activities with a bush lunch to allow access into different areas of the national park. The park is accessed by crossing the Luangwa River either by boat when the waters are high or by 4WDs in dryer season. For those craving some pampering relaxing massage treatments are available in your room or on your private deck.
