A stylish, unique and independent lodge situated in a remote part of South Luangwa National Park with abundant and uncongested game viewing on the doorstep. Lion Camp is also distinguished by its friendly staff, personalised service and excellent food.

Located 40km upstream from the main Mfuwe gate, and on the banks of an oxbow lagoon or âwafwa,â which retains a small amount of water all year, the lodge looks out onto open grassland. By day the plain is frequented by grazing mammals, and by night it becomes a hunting ground for Lions.

Lion Camp has just nine canvas and thatch chalets accommodating a maximum of 18 guests. Built on raised wooden platforms, they are linked to each other and the main area by a raised wooden boardwalk. Each chalet has either a four poster king-size double bed or twin beds, and a walk-in mosquito net.

In the absence of fences, game moves freely through the lodge grounds. Elephant, hippo, bushbuck and other antelope are regularly seen within the confines of the camp and there are healthy populations of lion, leopard, buffalo and giraffe in the immediate area.

An infinity swimming pool, lower deck with sun loungers, central bar and fireplace are located in the main 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 colours.

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 is plated. All food is prepared on site from fresh ingredients by our team of talented Zambian chefs
