Puku Ridge safari
Puku Ridge camp was very comfortable, the most spacious and luxurious safari accommodation we have experienced. The staff were extremely welcoming. We were the only guests so we had their very personal and undivided attention, but missed the contact with other guests that is part of the experience. Our guide on the game drives was excellent and very informative on details.
Overall the game did not live up to what we had experienced on previous days staying in the northern part of the South Luangwa Park, which had been exceptional. We saw two pairs of lions (one pair male, the other female), a leopard in a tree towards dusk and on another occasion on the ground at night, and 2 male giraffes fighting, as well as many hippos.
Cannot fault them. A bit strange the absence of women on the staff (at least they were not visible) but this was not a problem.
Loved the lunch in the bush.
Puku Ridge review
We enjoyed the fact that this was the only Lodge run entirely by Zambian nationals, and that they were making an excellent job of doing so.
Our Guide was not as personable or as knowledgeable as the others we dealt with, but the room and meal quality andservice was impeccable.
The setting of the Lodge was wonderful, but the overall number and variety of the animals and birds seen was perhaps a little less than our experience of Flatdogs and Lion
