Luangwa River Camp was built by a young English couple, Barry and Tara, who arrived in Zambia in 2001 with a host of ideas and huge enthusiasm. Their experiences were chronicled by the BBC TV programme ‘No Going Back’, which followed their day-to-day lives as they designed, built and furnished the lodge. The result, set under shady trees on the banks of the Luangwa River, was the contemporary Luangwa River Lodge. In April 2011 the management was taken over by Robin Pope Safaris, and the lodge renamed Luangwa River Camp.

Our view of Luangwa River Camp

Luangwa River Camp is an attractive safari camp with a high degree of design and style. It is set in a fantastic location and there is often plenty to see without having to leave camp. Nevertheless, it’s definitely worth venturing out on game activities into a part of the park that is known to offer some great wildlife viewing – though you may share some of your sightings with other vehicles in this busier area near to Mfuwe.
