Visit Luambe and enjoy a Luangwa safari all to yourself!
A Luangwa without the crowds
An intimate and remote safari experience
Safari activities at your pace.

“Seeing Luambe is to see the Luangwa as it used to be.”

Adrian Carr, long standing Luangwa Resident

Luambe National Park offers a Luangwa Valley experience reminiscent of the early days in the valley – remote and wild! Luambe Camp is the only accommodation in the entire park, so the whole experience is extremely remote and private and you can be assured that you will have wildlife sightings all to yourself.

The key points you need to know before visiting Luambe:

June – October
3 + 1 family tent
Mfuwe (3.5hrs)
Min 7yrs old

“A most enjoyable and memorable trip. The walking was unique, diverse and great. This park has to be one of our favourites. The staff, management guide and scout were impeccable, attentive and very good. Overall 10/10 experience – world class. Will definitely recommend this place to others! Thank you all.”

Luambe Camp - Walking Trails in the Luangwa Valley

Being a small and intimate bushcamp, we have the opportunity to focus on our guests and we also encourage guests to take things slowly and enjoy the different activities and experiences on offer in Luambe.

“One of the most unique and unforgettable experiences I have ever had on safari (and I’ve spent most of my life in Africa!)  I am very happy to have discovered Luambe Camp, a truly amazing place to soak up the wilderness and immerse your self in nature. The sleep-out in the bush is a memory I will treasure forever…. cannot wait to come back for more!”

"The ethos of the Luambe owner is reflected perfectly in the charm, courtesy and professionalism of its staff. Natascha could not have been more welcoming, amusing and helpful. Our guide Lamick was the epitome of care, knowledge and humour. The daily walking tracks were a highlight for us all and placed us in the very heart of this beautiful and varied country. I am not given to false praise, but Luambe Camps was of the best we have stayed in. Our thanks to all involved."
