Norman Carr Safaris - Luwi Bush Camp

Editorial Description

Luwi Camp is set deep in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, close to a permanent hippopotamus and crocodile-filled lagoon.

The perfect base for walking safaris, it is extremely remote with no other camps or people for miles in any direction. Billed as a ‘remote safari camp’, the accommodation is freshly built each season using natural materials so is certainly eco-friendly!

The rooms blend into the bush and, despite being simple, they are extremely comfortable with en-suite bathrooms and natural showers. Food is served in the daytime under the shade of the mature mahogany trees, and dinner is also al fresco, served under the stars with the sounds of the Zambian night as an accompaniment.

The lagoon close by has a hide for guests to watch the animals from a fantastic (and safe!) vantage point high above the water. The company offer a complete package with everything taken care of, so all that is required is some luggage and a camera!

Description

Luwi Camp is shaded by huge mahogany trees and is close to a hippo and croc filled lagoon. It is located in the heart of the National Park, on the dynamic seasonal Luwi River after which it is named. The area is extremely remote with no other camps or people for miles around.

Due to its remote location it’s the perfect camp for walking safaris. The wildlife in the area is prolific and tracking big game on foot is an incredibly memorable experience. Walks can be complemented by game drives and upriver explorations to discover the source of the Luwi or to find the elusive Roan antelope or reed buck, eland and hartebeest.

The rooms are built each season using natural materials so they blend into the bush. They are simple yet extremely comfortable with en-suite bathrooms and hot showers. With the emphasis on the use of natural materials in its construction, this camp is one of the most traditional of all of the Luangwa safari camps but still offers high levels of comfort and service. Daytime meals are served in the shade of the mahogany trees, and dinner is taken under the stars.

There is a large hippo filled lagoon close by with a ‘hide’ for guests to watch the animals unnoticed. Walking safaris from camp usually finish here with sundowners, watching the sunset over the landscape. This permanent water source attracts wildlife from far and wide so the camp area is constantly bustling with animals.

The Luwi area is known for its lions and the thrill of tracking them on foot is an experience not to be missed. The morning walking safari is likely to take three to four hours returning to camp in time for a hearty brunch. Then you can relax in the afternoon, viewing the wildlife surrounding the lagoon, before another safari later in the day. The camp barely has an impact on the environment being built with natural materials and dismantled at the end of each season.
