Operated by Norman Carr Safaris, Luwi is a seasonal bush camp nestled under huge mahogany trees on the banks of a permanent lagoon. It is situated deep in the heart of the National Park and is one of the only Luangwa safari camps to be positioned well away from the permanent waters and rich vegetation of the main river.
Due to its remote location there are not many roads in the area so activities are centred on walking safaris. The wildlife in the area is prolific and to track it each day on foot is a memory that will last a lifetime.
Accommodation is in four units that are made of grass and thatch with polished mud floors. Each room is designed differently utilising trees and natural vegetation wherever possible. The design of these rooms lends the camp a rustic appeal and provides a truly African bush experience.
A small thatch provides shade over the bar area but other than this there is no central covered area. Daytime meals are served in the shade of the trees above, whilst dinner is taken under the stars accompanied by the many sounds of the Zambian night.
There is a large lagoon adjacent to camp that teams with hippo and crocodile. This permanent water source attracts wildlife from far and wide making the camp area constantly busy with animals.
Luwi was one of South Luangwa National Park's first remote safari camps. Norman Carr sited the camp back in the 1980s and today this camp offers guests a true walking safari and a taste of the traditional African bush experience.
