Luangwa River Lodge is nestled under an ancient ebony grove on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking the Wafwa Oxbow Lagoon.
The Lodge offers open plan lounges, with dining under the endless canopy of African stars.
The Lodge’s gentle but exquisite decor fuses vibrant earth tones and raw materials such as palm stalks, indigenous timber, thatch and red earthen plaster, create a strikingly elegant yet warm and tactile atmosphere that rejects the rigidity of modern life making way for the natural flow of Africa’s endless wide open spaces.
The Lodge has all the creature comforts of a 5 star lodge, yet with all the intimacy, tailored activities and flexible mealtimes you come to expect from a bush camp as we only cater for up to 10 guests at any one time.
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.
