Dr Michael Riffel

Owner

In 2014, Michael Riffel founded Luambe Conservation Ltd. in the southern-central African country Zambia, which is involved in ecotourism and operates the Luambe Camp in the Zambian Luambe National Park.  The establishment and operation of Luambe camp made Dr Riffel aware of the various, sometimes massive problems of the small national park and finally prompted him to create  C4C and Nsanga – European and Zambian based non-profits focused on conservation, biodiversity research and landscape restoration.

Michael lives in Germany with his wife, Simone and twin boys.

"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."
