Visit Luambe and enjoy a Luangwa safari all to yourself!
A Luangwa without the crowds
An intimate and remote safari experience
See conservation in action

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 ZambiaTragically, 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.

“Luambe is being restored to the Luangwa as it used to be 40 years ago.”

Adrian Carr, long standing Luangwa Resident

“On our honeymoon from the USA and our first experience on the continent. Wow! Luambe Camp met all expectations! Staff are incredible. Wildlife everywhere and our guide is second to none. Thank you for a wonderful time. Our highlights included wild dogs interacting with elephants and a hippo plus a leopard dragging its prey away. So many beautiful birds!”

The sleep-out in the bush is a memory I will treasure forever…. cannot wait to come back for more!”
