The South Luangwa National Park occupies 9050 sq. kms along the banks of the Luangwa River, one of Africa's last, large undammed rivers and which ultimately flows into the great Zambezi. It is well known for its leopard sightings, prides of lions, herds of buffalo, packs of wilddog, one of Africa's largest hippo populations and several endemics such as Crawshay's zebra, the Thornicroft's giraffe, and Cookson's wildebeest. And then there are also over 400 bird species.

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.

Your days at Puku Ridge will be spent on incredible walking safaris, and day and night game drives in thoughtfully-outfitted and custom-made Landcruisers. There are also incredible photographic opportunities to be had from the camp's new hide.
