Wildlife Camp (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia


Wildlife Camp (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia - www.africansafaris.travel
 
Location: 

Wildlife Camp is a safari-camp on the banks of the Luangwa River, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. We provide our guests with an affordable front-row seat to one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in Africa.

South Luangwa is Zambia’s premier game viewing park where you can enjoy a unique type of habitat seldom seen elsewhere in Africa. Lying on the valley floor, between the meandering Luangwa River and the steep Muchinga Escarpment, this is the best national park in Zambia and one of the finest in all Africa.

The seasonal floodplains create an environment that supports a huge diversity of wildlife including over 100 species of mammals and over 420 species of birds as well as many reptiles, insects, amphibians and plants. A totally different experience from parks elsewhere in Africa, Luangwa offers a real immersion to the bush life in an attractive habitat of sausage trees and lagoons.

In the stunning light of early morning and late afternoon, one can often see elephants, impala, puku, troops of baboons, flocks of water birds, crocodiles and hippos all through the same view finder of your camera or binoculars!

The park is reputed to have the highest concentration of leopard in Africa. It is estimated that there is one Leopard for every kilometre of river in the Luangwa Valley, so your chances of seeing this elusive nocturnal cat are heightened in this park. Pods of up to 500 hippos are possible to view in the dry season as the river shrinks and they are confined to areas of deep pools. On average during the year there are probably 45 - 60 hippos per kilometer!

Responsible Tourism:

At Wildlife Camp we offer a much-needed niche for everyone who is enthusiastic about wildlife, the Luangwa valley and Zambia! At the camp we have rustic en-suite chalets, a secluded en-suite tented camp, a Bushcamp for overnight walking safaris and a stunning campsite, all situated on the banks of the Luangwa River in the Luangwa Valley. This valley forms the south-western extension of Africa’s extraordinary Great Rift Valley. The camp and its staff always aim to play second fiddle to Mother Nature and her wonderful spectacles, which is very often on display right in front of the restaurant and chalets.

Wildlife Camp is situated on land owned by Wildlife and Environmental Conservation Society of Zambia (WECSZ). We operate under their auspices and proudly donate a considerable portion of funds generated by your stay with us to the WECSZ – roughly 60% of all the accommodation and camping fees, which in return supports the wildlife and people of the Luangwa Valley and Zambia.

Accommodation:

Accommodation in this luxury safari camp consists of four individually designed chalets each on raised wooden decks with high thatched roofs and private verandas.

The rooms are very spacious with the stylish furnishings that one would expect from one of Zambia's luxury walking safari camps.

As with most of the Norman Carr bush camps the bathrooms have no roofs and are set under the shade of the trees above. Wildlife Camp is made up of nine chalets (6 twin, 1 double, and 2 family chalets). Our tented Camp has five twin en-suite tents and our bushcamp has four twin tents.

Activities:

The quality of South Luangwa National Park is reflected in the quality of our guides - the best in Zambia. The local professional guide association sets high standards, and all our guides have passed their tough examinations with flying colours. Our qualified and experienced guides lead all your activities and, as they are all Zambian, they give you a true insight into their own South Luangwa Park.

On walking safaris you will be accompanied by an armed scout assigned by the National Parks Board, (ZAWA) as well as our own knowledgeable guide.

Morning Drive Safaris

These leave camp at 06.00hrs and return around 10.30hrs. A morning drive allows you to enjoy the full beauty of Luangwa in the early sunlight and the cool temperatures, before the day heats up. The last hunt of the night predators, the waking up and starting day-to-day business of the smaller mammals, the sound of over 470 species of birds and this all can be seen and heard before the sun rises too high. During the morning drive your guide chooses a scenic spot for you to enjoy a warm cup of coffee and stretch your legs.

Safaris are conducted in open vehicles to let you truly appreciate the African bush. Our knowledgeable guides can tell you all you ever wanted to know about a great variety of mammals, birds and trees as well as some local insight and the history of the area. All safaris are half price for children between the ages of 2-12.

Night Drive Safaris

Our night drives leave camp at 16.00hrs and return around 20.15hrs. After enjoying the late afternoon light you will stop for sundowners. Once refreshed, you will continue to search by spotlight for nocturnal animals. Ever wondered what hippos do at night or how the roaring of a lion sounds close by? Ever wanted to see a leopard stalking impala? Your guide may also find time for some star gazing, as the clear night skies give a fantastic view of the constellations.

 All is possible during this safari. Our guide, accompanied by a ‘spotter’, will take you on a combined trip with two hours of daylight ending with another two hours of darkness. You are able to witness the change in animal life at close hand, from diurnal to nocturnal activities. All safaris are half price for children between the ages of 2-12.

Walking Safaris

These operate during the dry season from June to October and are not to be missed. Walking quietly through the bush you can explore close up the fascinating insect and plant world, as well as getting closer to the habitat of the birds and mammals. What is meant by the ‘little five’? Which animal does that footprint belong to? Why are the monkeys taking apart that big pile of droppings? All these and other questions our guides can answer.

Since our walking safaris are conducted in small groups (maximum of six according to ZAWA regulations), there is time enough to answer all these and any other questions you might have as you enjoy the variety of the bush. Our guide is accompanied by an obligatory armed scout assigned by the National Parks Board for any walking safaris conducted in or outside the National Park. The safety regulations of the park dictate that children under the age of 12 cannot take part in walking safaris.

 

In addition to the National Park walking safaris, we offer walks on the camp side of the river which is situated in a Game Management Area on Wildlife Society land. This area is much the same as the National Park, and wild animals are as common here as in the park proper, since they cross the river from the park to our camp. Tea and coffee are provided on your walk. You will enjoy a rest and refreshment half-way through the safari. The walking safari sets off at 06.00hrs and return around 11.00hrs, afternoon walks or revised times can always be discussed with management. To make to most out of your visit to the park, we suggest you use your entrance permit wisely. For example, if you choose to book a morning drive / walk and a night drive with us, your park entry is only paid once.

Our knowledgeable and qualified Zambian guides, an armed scout and bush chef escort you on this magical overnight trip and show you the wonders of nature.

An afternoon walk will take you out to the bush camp, where our cook is waiting for you with refreshments. After a cold local beer, a relaxing sunset in the middle of the bush awaits you, with bird song, hippo conversation and other animal sounds. Regular visits from elephants or giraffes make the afternoon complete. Our bush camp is offered as full board only, including all your meals and activities from the day you depart, until the last breakfast and return walk from the bush. What more can be said, it’s an experience not to be missed! As the Bushcamp is so popular and to assure the privacy of the bush for our guests (maximum eight), booking early is essential.

Village Tours
