Luwi Bush Camp


Luwi Bush Camp is a seasonal safari camp located in the picturesque South Luangwa National Park.


Luwi Bush Camp was one of the South Luangwa National Park's first remote safari camps. Norman Carr sited the camp back in the 1980's and today this camp, more than any other in Zambia, offers guests a true walking safari and a taste of the traditional African bush experience.

Luwi Bush Camp is nestled under huge mahogany trees on the banks of a permanent lagoon. It is situated deep in the heart of the South Luangwa National Park and is one of the only Luangwa safari camps to be positioned well away from the permanent waters and rich vegetation of the main river.

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.

There is a large lagoon adjacent to Luwi Bush Camp that teams with hippo and crocodile. This permanent water source attracts wildlife from far and wide making the camp area constantly busy with animals. With the emphasis on the use of natural materials in its construction, this camp is certainly one of the most traditional of all of the Luangwa safari camps.

Typically your day will start early, around the camp fire when you will discuss the noises and animals heard through the night. Your morning walking safari is likely to take three to four hours returning you to camp in time for a hearty brunch.

If you are transferring to Nsolo Bush Camp from Luwi then you will pack your bags in the morning and set off on foot finishing your walking safari at Nsolo where you will find a cool drink waiting, brunch on the table and your bags in your room. However, if you are remaining at Luwi Bush camp, then you can relax in the afternoon, viewing the wildlife attracted by the lagoon, before a further safari later in the day.
