About Wildlife Camp

Since 1992 Wildlife Camp has built up its well-earned reputation as one of the best camps of South Luangwa National Park!

Wildlife Camp is the home of managing director, Herman Miles, who established it in 1992. Herman has been working in the Southern African bush for more than thirty-five years. He knows the roads, animals and plants of the Luangwa Valley like the back of his hand. He is well known for his contribution in South Luangwa when it comes to guiding and conservation.

Wildlife Camp is managed by a well-established team, each with his and her own special talents.

Hands-on management has always been Wildlife Camp’s trademark, and nobody is more involved than managers Jacholeen and Dawie. Alongside Herman, this couple is the face and voice of Wildlife Camp, and between them, they have a marathon worth of experience in the hospitality industry. Jacholeen creates scrumptious three course dinners while making sure that guests receive a warm welcome back after their safari-drives. Dawie keeps the staff on their toes while warning guests about approaching elephants. At Wildlife Camp we speak five languages – English, Spanish, Chinyanja, Afrikaans, and the Love of Wildlife. We have many stories to share and create with you.

Besides management, Wildlife Camp has a team of highly qualified, experienced Zambian safari guides. Joseph Zulu (BJ) has been with the camp for more than a decade and is one of the up-and-coming stars of the guiding community. Ryver Ikwenda has been guiding for more than 15 years now and his bush-knowledge is second to none. Wildlife Camp also employ’s around 40 other local staff from barmen to housekeepers to night-watchmen to bricklayers, all here to make sure that your African-expedition produces many splendid stories.
