Zambia’s favourite camp gets a complete renovation

Situated at the end of the Great Rift Valley, Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park is an exceptional place for an authentic African safari. At 9050 square-kilometres it is Zambia’s second largest national park and sustains huge concentrations of game – 60 different animal species and more than 400 different bird species.

Lion Camp is located in the northernmost reaches of the park, offering a wilderness safari with abundant game viewing and few other vehicles.  In the past year, the camp has undergone a complete renovation. Lion Camp re-opens in May 2018, having retained all that made it exceptional and with a greater level of luxury, minimal impact on the environment and maximum longevity.

The partnership with Mantis will build on past work for a more sustainable future, working with local organisations and communities to preserve this pristine eco system, which boasts the world’s highest naturally occurring population of leopard. Lion also pass through to or from the river, and guests are perfectly positioned to observe this activity, often from the comfort of our own deck.

Other animals include wild dogs, spotted hyena, huge concentrations of hippo and crocodiles, endemic Thornicroft’s giraffe, Cookson’s wildebeest and Crawshay’s zebra, great herds of Cape buffalo, large family groups of elephant,eland and other antelope such as kudu, puku and impala.


Lion Camp has always been one of Zambia’s favourite safari destinations. It is now a truly exceptional place to find yourself. Discover more on the official website.
