A Luangwa without the crowds
Luambe offers a remote safari in a National Park that is being restored through conservation.
The Lindsey et al. report of 2014 found Luambe National Park has the highest potential large mammal biomass per square kilometre of all Zambian National Parks! That means Luambe National Park should have the highest volume of large mammAals for its size in Zambia. Tragically, the 2014 report found the park only had a staggering 5% of its wildlife potential due to poaching and a lack of resources.
Luambe Camp & Conservation was formed to change this and over the last 6 years, has quietly been achieving amazing results. Visiting Luambe is both a remote and private Luangwa safari and gives guests the chance to see and participate in various conservation activities being done on the ground.
There is more to Africa than ‘tourist-trap’ safaris! Why not join in protecting the wildlife at Luambe?
