Luwi’s four thatched bamboo chalets sit idyllically amidst a shady grove of ancient trees that line the banks of the Luwi sand river. The camp is built seasonally using natural materials and the rooms melt into the surrounding bush; Luwi has been described as “The best little bush camp in Africa”. Each room has an open ensuite bathroom, the finest bedding and excellent food all cooked freshly onsite.

Brunch is taken in the shade of a huge old tree and dinner is under the stars. The Luwi area is famous for its lions and the thrill of tracking them on foot is an experience not to be missed.

There is a hippo-filled lagoon close by and there is something special spending a few hours in the nearby hide during siesta time or finishing a walking safari with sundowners there, watching the sunset over a landscape unchanged for thousands of years.

Luwi Camp epitomizes the legacy of Norman Carr. The camp barely has an impact on the environment being built with natural materials and dismantled at the end of each season.
