Luwi Bushcamp

Found on the banks of a lagoon and nestled under large mahogany trees, seasonal Luwi Bush Camp (Norman Carr Safaris) is in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park, remote, secluded and beautiful. Due to its remote location there are not many roads in the area so activities are centred on walking safaris. This fact makes Luwi Bush Camp one of the most enthralling camps in Zambia. The wildlife in the area is prolific and to track it each day on foot is a memory that will last a lifetime.

The 4 rooms blend into the bushveld and are built from natural materials each season. Accommodation is authentically rustic but provides guests with en-suite bathrooms that include flush toilets and showers with hot running water all day. While offering guests excellent wildlife viewing and service the camp affords guests the chance to get back to nature.

Guests can look out over the nearby lagoon, which is usually filled with hippo, with a hide provided by the camp for viewing them, however hippos aren't the only visitors to the lagoon, with many other species making use of this permanent waterhole. Walking safaris are one of the best and biggest activities from camp, with lion sightings a particular highlight.
