Luwi Camp

Luangwa Valley

Rating: Deluxe    

Luwi Camp overview

Luwi Camp is a seasonal camp nestled under huge mahogany trees on the banks of a permanent lagoon.

Accommodation is in just four huts constructed of grass and thatch with polished mud floors. All have ensuite bathroom. A small thatch provides shade over the bar area. Daytime meals are served in the shade of the trees with a view of the grassy plain that normally attracts an abundance of wildlife, whilst dinner is taken under the stars accompanied by the many sounds of the African night.

There is a large lagoon adjacent to camp that teems with hippo and crocodile. This permanent water source attracts game from far and wide making the camp area constantly busy with animals. There is a hide by the lagoon allowing you to view animals up close. Luwi is one of the camps situated deepest in the Luangwa wilderness, lending the camp a rustic appeal and providing a truly African bush experience. Since there are very few roads in this area of the park, the emphasis from Luwi is on walking.

Location: Located deep in the heart of South Luangwa National Park on the seasonal Luwi River. The camp is located among shady mahogany trees near a hippo-filled lagoon.

Tracy Edwards, Tribes
"I want to go back and stay for a month! This place felt like a wildlife enthusiast’s paradise with stunningly simple yet beautiful rooms and a viewing hide where I could have spent days! Since there aren’t very many roads the focus is walking and it really does feel like you are the only people in the bush.  "
