Puku Ridge Camp

Discover Puku Ridge Camp

Puku Ridge Camp in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, blends style and comfort seamlessly with nature. With an outlook onto a private floodplain and watering hole, Puku Ridge is situated on one of the Park's prime sites. The camp has recently been completely rebuilt with a lighter footprint, it's unique in design but traditional in outlook.

The camp features 8 luxury safari tents which are set on an elevated ridge overlooking plain and woodlands, full of wildlife. There is air conditioning in each tent (which is a rare and welcome luxury in the Luangwa valley) and overhead fans, all within a stylish take on the mosquito net. The bathrooms feature "his & hers" washbasins, indoor shower and huge bathtub with view. Outside you will find a multi-level veranda with plunge pool overlooking the plains and wildlife, plus a tower with star bed perfect for nights under the vast African sky. The camp's main area offers indoor and open-air lounge with various dining options, as well as a campfire and viewing hide overlooking the waterhole. The chefs will prepare food that is fresh, creative, varied, delicious and always served with a smile and incredible view.
