A privately owned safari lodge in one of the best safari locations in Zambia is Lion Camp in South Luangwa.  A 3-hour transfer by way of a game drive from the Mfuwe Airport to Lion Camp in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle.

Built on the edge of an oxbow lagoon which attracts a wide variety of wildlife. Game viewing in and around camp is spectacular with lions, leopards, wild dogs, large herds of elephant and buffalo, the highest concentration of hippo in Africa, incredible bird viewing, and plentiful sightings of the unique Thornicroft’s Giraffe, Cookson’s Wildebeest and Crawshay’s Zebra. Savannas, woodlands and the meandering Luangwa River form the backdrop to this amazing wilderness.

Walking safaris and game drives at Lion Camp are expertly led by some of South Luangwa’s best guides. Located far away from the Mfuwe Gate, Lion Camp offers a truly exclusive safari experience with an abundance of game and few other safari vehicles.

All of Lion Camp’s 10 luxurious timber, canvas and thatch suites have been designed to maximise the spectacular views. Each suite has a private deck looking over the plain where plenty of wildlife pass offering game viewing throughout the day. The suites are connected to the main area by a raised and winding wooden walkway. The main lodge is a spacious, open and airy thatched area with private nooks, seating areas and a pool.

From the style and comfort of the suites to the delicious locally produced menu paired with South African estate wines, to the expertly guided safaris and bush dinners served under the stars, Lion Camp offers understated luxury and an exceptional safari experience.  No children under age of 10 years old.

Lion Camp only operates in Zambia’s dry season from  21 May to 31 October.
