Project Description


Lion Camp is a hidden gem located in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, an animal refuge and pristine protected ecosystem. Easily accessible from Mfuwe Airport, Lion Camp operates between May and October.

Sense the magic of Africa in an authentic wilderness, where a diversity of animal and bird species all live off the Luangwa River. Feel the natural tranquillity of the unfenced lodge, offering safaris as they should be, teaming with wildlife and less human footprint.

Elevated above the valley floor, the lodge has a ‘tree house’ feel. Meander along the walkways from the spacious main lodge, where you can unwind at the bar after a refreshing dip in the pool; to the luxury canvas and thatch suites, each with a deck overlooking spectacular views.

Embrace the thrill of the safari and take your pick from game drives and special interest safaris to guided walking safaris, bird watching and stargazing. At the Camp, we have 5 game vehicles for our 10 beautiful, standalone private Suites, so you are most certainly guaranteed a bespoke and safe experience.

Lion Camp operates on the first developed site within the South Luangwa National Park. Established in the late 60’s as an overnight camp for walking safaris and anti-poaching scouts. Privately owned since 2004 and has evolved from a very basic bush camp to an understated luxury lodge.

The owners and management of Lion Camp prides ourselves in not only offering our guests a very authentic safari experience but also being actively involved in the upliftment of our staff, their training and the education of their children.

One of our community projects currently is the re-building of the local Mkasanga community clinic.
