Luxury in Lion Camp: Adventure and tranquility
This is one of a handful of safari camps allowed to operate inside Zambia's South Luangwa National Park. It is a rich, bountiful landscape at the end of the Great Rift Valley in a wilderness first explored by Stanley and Livingstone a century and a half ago. It provides sanctuary for an impressive variety of birds and mammals; is renowned for its leopards, and is home to possibly the world's largest concentration of Nile crocodiles. Elephant, hippos and small antelope such as bushbuck and puku, are frequently seen in camp. But you'll never forget your first look at a lion. The South Luangwa National Park (SLNP) is not just an animal refuge, but a living, breathing ecosystem - carefully preserved and fiercely protected. No hunting is allowed in the National Park, and strict guidelines for eco-tourism is followed.
This place of fine luxury in real Africa is an intimate refuge of comfort and tranquillity where the world is still wild. It accommodates up to eighteen guests, in 9 beautifully furnished canvas-and-thatch luxury villas, 5 with king-size double-beds and 4 with twin-bedded rooms. Each stylish chalet features luxuriously draped mosquito nets, a private balcony with comfortable day-beds, a stand-fan and en suite bathroom with shower and toilet. The private villas stand high above the savannah on stilts, and the entire lodge is linked by a system of lighted boardwalks. With no fences surrounding the lodge, wildlife is free to move unhindered, under the walkways. The camp is dedicated to maintaining the African beauty — for our guests, and also for the sake of the land and the local community itself.
