A relaxing, unique and set-apart lodge located in a remote part of South Luangwa National Park with abundant and uncongested game viewing on the doorstep. Lion Camp distinguished by its friendly staff, personalized, excellent food and service.
Found 4okm upstream away from Mfuwe gate, the banks of an oxbow lagoon or “Wafwa,” retains a small amount of water, making the lodge look out onto open grassland all year. During the day the plain is visited by grazing mammals, and by night it becomes a hunting territory for Lions.
Lion Camp has just nine canvas and thatch chalets accommodating a maximum of 18 guests. Built on raised wooden platforms, linked to each other and the central area by a raised wooden boardwalk. Each cottage has a four poster king-size double bed or twin beds and a walk-in mosquito net. They are all come with en-suite with a shower and toilet and have private decks overlooking the open plain in front.
In the absence of fences, the game moves freely through the lodge perimeter. Elephant, hippo, bushbuck and other antelope are usually seen within the confines of the camp, and there are reasonable populations of lion, leopard, buffalo, and giraffe in the immediate area.
With an infinity swimming pool, lower deck with sun loungers, central bar, and fireplace located in the central area, along with a library and small shop. 220V inverter power is available in each chalet. The lodge is regularly updated; the most recent refurbishment was in 2010 when Stephen Falcke Interiors introduced fresh and vibrant colors.
Mealtimes at Lion Camp are social occasions and are highly convivial, with fabulous food and plenty of stories from your Lion Camp hosts. Our set menu is varied and healthy. Lunch is buffet style, and the evening meal plated. Food is made on site from fresh ingredients by our team of talented Zambian chefs.
BAR POOL WILDLIFE LUXURY Accommodation – All the rooms have been designed to maximize the views. We have eight luxury rooms that are available as doubles or twins and can be adapted to accommodate one child as a triple.
During the daytime, the net in front of the room can be turned up to access a separate deck immediately from the place. Bathrooms are located away a little bit to provide more privacy while ensuring an unobstructed view out.
Luxury Rooms – Our luxury rooms retain the primary ‘tree house’ aesthetic, with waterproof walls and roofing roof, but with even more comfort – Evening Breeze cooling units have been placed over the beds. Besides, our new water filtration system ensures crystal clear pressurized showers and solar provide all our power. 220V inverter power is available with Wi-Fi in the rooms.
Private Suites – Our two suites offer superior luxury and maximize the best places in the camp. They are comparable in perspective to the luxury rooms but are larger and have an outdoor bath. The perfect base for a honeymoon.
