“This is a very unique and special place where you will get 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.”

"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."
