Luwi is a superb camp in a wild and remote part of the Luangwa Valley. It is as close to the perfect bush camp as it is possible to get – remote but comfortable.

In fact, the camp is constructed in the legendary Norman Carr’s favourite camping spot, when he brought his anti-poaching patrols, and the first ever walking safaris into the park in the mid-1950’s. Four reed-and-thatch chalets sit in a beautiful shady grove and accommodate a maximum of six guests. There is solar-powered lighting and an al-fresco dining area and each of the rooms has en-suite facilities consisting of hot showers and flush toilets.

The evenings at Luwi are spent under the stars, absorbing the sounds of the night or chatting about the bush around the camp fire. Game-viewing here is conducted principally on foot and offers excellent opportunities for mammal-watching at close quarters and birdwatching alike.
