Lions Camp Highlights

One of the reasons we love Lion Camp is its commitment to using local resources and operating with sustainability in mind. While the amenities offer everything guests could want in a luxury safari holiday, the lodge is sustainably built, runs on solar power and uses eco-friendly products. The close-knit team is made up of staff who come from the Luangwa Valley, many who have trained and grown within the company. Visually, Lion Camp is beautiful. Its location on the banks of the winding river gives it a wild, waterfront view, and the spacious rooms are exquisitely put together, raised on stilts, and complete with all the creature comforts.

Lions Camp Game Viewing and Activities

South Luangwa’s reputation precedes it. It is one of Southern Africa’s most celebrated wildlife destinations and has been the location for multiple documentaries focusing on the interaction of lion prides and other members of the animal community. So, it goes without saying that game viewing at Lion Camp is up there with the best in Africa. The lodge is located in the uncrowded northern reaches of the park, so safari experiences are more private and exclusive. Game drives are the order of the day and dry season produces some of the best sightings. Walking safaris are on offer and we recommend this as an experience in this park in particular. The camp is used as a base for photographic safaris with Edward Selfe, a private photographic guide who brings guests to Lion Camp to capture the best of South Luangwa.
