South Luangwa National Park is a world-famous safari destination and offers some of the best guides in Africa!

Morning Drive

Wildlife Camp’s morning driving safaris start at 6:00 (just after a light breakfast for our full-board clients) and return to camp at about 10:15. Safaris are conducted in comfortable open vehicles to let you truly appreciate the bush. Morning safaris are usually the perfect way to see and photograph Zambia’s big mammals – elephants, zebra, giraffe and buffalo are common and antelopes such as impala, puku and kudu fill in the gaps. Birding in South Luangwa National Park is spectacular, and the valley floor hosts trees older than 1000 years.

Wildlife Camp’s safaris are not just about driving around looking for animals – our knowledgeable guides can tell you all you ever wanted to know about a great variety of mammals, birds, insects and trees as well as some local insight and the history of the area. During the morning safari your guide chooses a scenic spot for you to enjoy a warm cup of coffee and stretch your legs. It’s the perfect way to get to know the African bush on a personal level!

For our full-board clients, lunch is served shortly after returning from the morning safari.

Night Drive

Our night drives leave camp at 16.00hrs and return around 20.15hrs, just in time for a late three course dinner for our full-board clients. After enjoying the late afternoon light, you will stop for sundowners. Once refreshed, you will continue to search by spotlight for nocturnal animals. As soon as the sun goes down, a different set of animals appear. Large spotted genets and African civets are always a highlight, and the birders will be glad to hear that the South Luangwa National Park has an impressive Pell’s Fishing Owl population. The park is famous throughout Africa for its excellent leopard sightings, and even though none of these animals can be guaranteed, it is sometimes enough just knowing that they are around.

Our guides are accompanied by spotters on the night driving safaris. Wildlife Camp has the most experienced spotters in the area, and you’ll be amazed to see how these guys spot even chameleons at night. While morning driving safaris are often about relaxing and just watching the bush go by, night driving safaris are often filled with excitement and is not to be missed!

Beautiful place with animals right next to the door. We spend 4 nights in chalets and everything was perfect - clean, great service, friendly staff, very tasty food and amazing safari. Our guide Lemis was perfect - very knowledgeable, he knows a lot about the park, animals and plants and it was really fun to spend time in the national park with him. We recommend this place and hope one time we will come back...

A wonderful lodge with some huts to sleep in and a campsite near a pool. Good food and a very friendly barman (Join). Animals are actually walking around the lodge and the lodge is near a water hole so you can watch animals while drinking (even giraffes)!
