Stay in a Luangwa bushcamp with everything you need

Luambe Camp complements a unique Luangwa safari by delivering comfortable safari tent accommodation on the banks of the Luangwa River. In the dry season, hundreds of hippo gather below camp and the resident leopard are almost nightly visitors to the camp. The 4 en-suite tents overlooking the river are spacious with a focus on allowing guests the chance to feel like they have escaped to a lost world.

“A wonderful experience! Everyone worked so hard to make this a memorable holiday!”

– Rickert, August 2022

Stylish safari tents help you immerse into nature.


As the only permanent camp in the park, privacy is guaranteed.

“This is an unique and very special place, to experience African wilderness in the most intimate and authentic way. With beautiful location on the bank of Luangwa River, it is the only camp in Luambe NP, so you have the whole park for yourself – no hordes of other cars and people chasing the same animals. Bird life is amazing. The camp itself is very comfortable, with friendly and welcoming staff, great food, and very professional guiding. Sleepout in the bush is an experience unlike anything else! A truly unforgettable visit with lifelong memories to treasure. I would like to commend especially very impressive scientific and conservation taking place there. This is a special place for those who love wilderness, care about its conservation and value authenticity.”

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.
