Project Description


Lion Camp is a hidden gem located in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. Easily accessible from Mfuwe Airport, Lion Camp operates between May and October. Sense the magic of Africa in this authentic wilderness. Feel the natural tranquillity of the unfenced lodge, offering safaris as they should be, teaming with wildlife and very few vehicles.

Lion Camp provides the idyllic balance of authentic bush and luxurious comfort. Elevated on stilts above the Luangwa Valley floor, the lodge has a ‘tree house’ feel that allows you to walk safely and freely without an escort. Meander along the winding walkways that take you from the spacious main lodge, where you can relax in cosy private nooks and seating areas, or enjoy a cocktail at the bar after a refreshing dip in the pool; to the luxury canvas and thatch suites, all with shaded private deck areas overlooking spectacular, panoramic views of the oxbow lagoon.

Embrace the thrill of the safari with one of the lodge’s five qualified guides, each with their own game-viewing vehicle. Take your pick from exciting game drives and special interest safaris to guided walking safaris, bird watching and stargazing. Lion Camp is an unforgettable adventure.

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.
