Recently refurbished and reopened in 2018, Lion Camp is among the more luxurious lodges in South Luangwa. With a heavy influence from lodges in South Africa, you can expect great service, great food and great guiding with the opulence of a boutique hotel in the bush.
There are 10 rooms along the floodplain. The lodge is set on a raised wooden platform with walkways to the rooms ensuring wildlife can walk freely off the plain and under your room! Visually stunning, the lodge delivers on luxury in a game rich area of the park.
LOW Season: 19 May – 15 Jul & 16 – 31 Oct
HIGH Season: 16 Jul – 15 Oct
CLOSED: 1 Jan – 18 May & 1 Nov – 31 Dec
We recently spent five days at glorious Lion Camp . Chic accommodation , fabulous food and wine and wonderful location overlooking a watering hole and the wafwah stretching into the distance occupied constantly by a huge variety of wildlife . Vicky and Wayne manage this very special place with dedication to the highest standards , along with a hugely warm welcome . Brilliant guides ensure you see as much game as possible and have unbelievable skills and knowledge . We had a truly memorable stay.
Our first visit to Lion Camp and hopefully not the last. This recently remodeled camp sits on the banks of an oxbow lagoon where elephants, antelope, baboons and the occasional predator come to drink throughout the day. You can sit in your room or in the main area of camp and watch the animals without even going on a game drive. But when you do go on game drive you will have some very productive territory to explore along the banks of the Luangwa River – without running into very many other vehicles! Great food and excellent service at the camp too.
Many Congratulations to the “NEW” Lion Camp !!!
We’ve been visiting Lion Camp every year since 2013 and in some years twice in a year.. In all we’ve been there about 7 to 8 times. On every trip we made there it was always a memorable one. When we visited the “OLD” Lion Camp, we thought, that’s it, it cannot be done any better, but, low and behold, the “NEW” Lion Camp has turned out to be marvelous.. All the best words in the dictionary cannot describe the status !!
I can only echo the positive reviews, Lion Camp is fabulous . Vicky, Wayne and all of their staff really do the most amazing job. The accommodation, food and service are spot on. The views from the rooms and dining areas are ever-changing with the visiting animals. Game drives were exceptional, thank you Thomas and “Hawkeye”. We always felt safe and secure on walks, drives and in camp even though we got close up to many animals. Highly recommended.
