About Luwi Bushcamp, South Luangwa National Park

About Luwi Bushcamp, South Luangwa National Park

Luwi Bushcamp takes its name from a nearby river, which is mainly a dried up sandbank through out the year, the river was actually named after a Zambian chief, Chief Lubi (pronounced Luwi). Due to its remoteness within South Luangwa National Park the activities offered by Luwi Bush Camp are focussed around walking safaris. The concentrations of animals in the area are prolific and to track them on foot each day is a memory never to be forgotten. The 4 grass and thatch huts lends the camp a rustic appeal and provides a truly African experience.

The bar area is the only covered communal area meaning that day time meals are served under the shade of the trees and evening meals are served under the blanket of the African stars accompanied by the sounds of the African bush. 

Lodge Details


An intimate and traditional lodge with a rustic feel.


The lodge is in South Luangwa National Park, about one hours drive from Mfuwe – depending on what you see on the way!

Accommodation & Facilities

The entire lodge is built emphasising the use of natural materials; even the luggage shelf and hanging rail are made from local woods and reeds. The 4 huts, made from grass and thatch, all have polished mud floors and are individually built to utilise the trees and surrounding vegetation. Each hut is en-suite with huge bathrooms partly open to the sky and hot and cold running water. The honeymoon chalet is slightly larger and has a front wall on hinges which can be opened out onto a private patio area; this room also has a stunning view from the bed!

There is no central covered area, however there is a shaded part of the bar where guests can relax and take their lunch.


Breakfast, brunch and afternoon tea are served throughout the day. Dinner comprises of 3 courses and is served under the stars.


The lodge is very remote with few roads; so far more terrain can be covered with a walking safari. There is also the use of a vehicle for spot lit night drives if the guests desire.

Child Policy

Children over 12 are allowed at the lodge, however under 16’s are only able to join walking safaris at the guides discretion.
