Croc Valley Camp is set along the bank of the Luangwa River with fantastic views where it is not uncommon to see elephants crossing the river and strolling through the camp.

Each of the six bushcamps are set in glorious surroundings and can accommodate a maximum of just eight guests, ensuring that your stay is a peaceful one and tailored to your personal needs.

Zungulila is a charming camp that embodies the essence of old Africa and a bygone era, with breathtaking views onto the Kapamba river and an expansive plain where natural springs attract huge herds of game. The Camp consists of four spacious tents. Built under thatch roofs, each shaded tent has its own private bamboo veranda with immense views over an impressive variety of.

Last, but by no means least is the Luangwa River Camp. Luangwa River Camp sits nestled under an ancient ebony grove on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking the game rich area known as the Luangwa Wafwa.

This small and intimate camp with just five bush suites, along with its setting and location creates a real “wow” factor through the camp.

The combination of the fantastic wildlife, knowledgeable guides, superb service and friendly team make Luangwa River Camp an experience not to be missed.
