Best time to visit: Luambe is open from June until the end of October and we feel the best months to visit are from August onwards although June and July can still deliver outstanding safari encounters.
Climate & Clothing: June and July are the coolest months. At times it can be cold at night, with warm and pleasant days. Bring suitable warm clothing. August, September and October are the hottest months with August being modest and October very hot even at night. Game gathers along the river to drink as the bush has dried up completely.
Health: Malaria is present in the Luangwa Valley, so we recommend you take malaria prophylactics. Certain parts in Luambe National Park do have tsetse flies, however they are seen as more of an irritation than a serious threat to health.
Communications: There is currently no mobile coverage in the area around Luambe Camp. Although, in case of emergencies, we are always able to get messages instantly to the outside world.
Power: Luambe Camp runs on solar power with inverters. Limited 240 volt power can therefore be provided for guests in their tents. Solar power is obviously dependent on the sun and the ability to charge the camp’s main batteries during the day. Please bring plenty of battery backup – charging facilities can be limited during overcast days. Please do not use hair dryers, the charging of batteries and laptops is, however, possible.
Visa Requirements: Tourist visas are required for non-SADC clients and the current cost is $50 per person on arrival in Zambia. No visas are required for SADC members.
