Ridge Tented Camp (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia
Puku Ridge tented camp is located1 in a remote wildlife
area in South Luangwa National Park. Puku Ridge is located
in a very high game rich wild life area. For millennia, this
low, rocky ridge has overlooked the wide, water-rich valley.
From this vantage point among the trees, predators and
hunters would quietly observe the prolific hunting grounds
spread out below.
But now visitors come to Puku Ridge to revel in the
abundance of wildlife and the comforts of a traditional
old-world safari camp. Named for the elusive Puku antelope
which never strays far from water, this beautiful camp among
the trees overlooks a sweeping expanse of the fertile
Kakumbi dambo (valley). Here, the living is easy for both
visitors and wildlife.
Puku Ridge Tented Camp is small and intimate, built
unobtrusively close to the wild.
Each of the six comfortably furnished safari tents has
its own lavish bathroom which provides the option of taking
a shower with the sun on your shoulders.
6 Spacious walk-in canvas safari tents with a wrap around
