Experience the Luangwa of days gone-by with this unique safari
The Luangwa Valley of Zambia is rightly known as one of the best safari destinations in Africa. Walking safaris, sleep outs and experiencing unique bushcamps are all signature moments when visiting the Luangwa and Luambe National Park offers a wilderness safari that brings all of these incredible Luangwa moments to life across 4 nights.
Luambe Camp is a classic Luangwa bushcamp experience
Luambe Camp is a classic bushcamp experience in the Luangwa being remote, intimate and offering sortafter game drives, walking safaris, bush dinners and sleepouts. Experience the beauty of walking along the banks of the Luangwa River or game drives looking for the famous leopards and lions of the Luangwa valley. As with most bushcamps in the Luangwa, a big focus of Luambe Camp is to offer genuine safari accommodation and bring the visitors closer the wildlife.
Luangwa safari activities in Luambe National Park
Visiting hides and enjoying a walking safari are our preferred ways to spend the mornings in Luambe. These activities are particular enjoyable when the air is still cool, the bush is awakening after the long night and the light is soft. We sometimes conclude our walking safari with a surprise bush breakfast in a shady spot too. The late afternoon is a great time for game drives. Your evening game drive will always include a special spot to stop, stretch the legs and with a sundowner in hand, watch the pinky sunsets over the park. We then drive back in the dark with the spotlights looking for nocturnal wildlife before returning to camp for dinner.
Experience a night out on the banks of the Luangwa River
*This experience is only available to those who book the “4 night sleep out special”.
This is the latest addition to the conservation and wildlife activities at Luambe. It is an experience aimed for the adventurous, for the explorers who want to totally immerse themselves in this pristine and remote wilderness area. (Our first guests who experienced the sleep out fell asleep to the call of a leopard followed by the distant roar of lions.)
Our Luambe sleepouts are generally run on your second or third night in the park where instead of heading back to camp after your afternoon game drive, you will be taken to a your secret sleep out site where you will spend the night. A bush dinner will be served at the sleep out site and ablutions will be within walking distance to your net. Your guide and scout will always be nearby, ensuring you get a peaceful nights sleep under the starry Zambian sky.
