Zambian Travel Information

What you need to know before visiting Luambe Camp

when to visit

Luambe is open from June until the end of October and we feel the best months to visiat are from August onwards although June and July can still deliver outstanding safari encounters.

Climate & Clothing

Our safari season is typically dry and hot with September and October known to be particularly warm. Cool mornings and evenings however are to expected in our winter months of June, July and August.


Malaria is present in the Luangwa Valley, so we recommend you take malaria prophylactics. Certain parts in Luambe National Park do have tsetse flies, however they are seen as more of an irritation than a serious threat to health.


Luambe Camp runs on solar power with inverters. Limited 240 volt power can therefore be provided for guests in their tents. Solar power is obviously dependent on the sun and the ability to charge the camp’s main batteries during the day. Please bring plenty of battery backup – charging facilities can be limited during overcast days. Please do not use hair dryers, the charging of batteries and laptops is, however, possible.

Visa requirements

Tourist visas are required for non-SADC clients and the current cost is $50 per person on arrival in Zambia. No visas are required for SADC members.
