Lion Camp is located in the remote north of South Luangwa National Park, close to the incredibly game-rich Lion Plain, and a three-hour drive through the park from Mfuwe Airport. Comfortable and well appointed, it overlooks a plain on the edge of an oxbow lagoon, or wafwa, which is a real magnet for game all year round.
Our view of Lion Camp
Lion Camp's facilities are impressive, with an attractive and well designed main area featuring the significant luxury of a swimming pool. Its food and service were also very good, and the chalets comfortable, albeit a little less 'safari' than some purists might like. Whilst the larger size of the camp and its infrastructure might not appeal to those looking for a simple bush experience, Lion Camp is excellent value compared with its neighbours for this comparatively remote northern area of the park, especially during the peak season.
