    Dreamlike…. A beautiful place to unwind. The lodge is tastefully decorated and the crew loves to pamper their guests with surprises. The rides and hikes through the national park are always exciting and instructive. I would definitely want to return here on another vacation in Zambia.

Activities on offer with Luambe Camp & Conservation

As Luambe Camp & Conservation is the only operator in Luambe National Park, the hallmark of the entire experience is the privacy and remoteness. We are always doing something of interest in the park and this can range from an incredible sleep out to tagging vultures. One day we might need to check the camera traps for our leopard study but then in season, we may start the day with coffee at the carmine bee-eater colony. Your stay in Luambe can be tailored around your interest and whichever activities are available at the time.
