Overview of Lion Camp

Lion Camp is tucked away in the northern reaches of Zambia’s world-famous wildlife sanctuary, the South Luangwa National Park. Situated within the Luangwa Valley floor, the camp provides uninterrupted panoramic views of the animal-rich oxbow lagoons and surrounding grasslands. Within the elevated elegance of a treehouse-styled lodge, Lion Camp offers a perfect vantage point for you to survey the Luangwa Valley and its rich display of wildlife.

An abundance of game can be viewed from the comfort of your luxury suite, where you’ll be delighted each day by the grunting of hippos soaking in the nearby river during flooding season or the musical tweets of over 400 species of birds—each unique sound waiting to be expertly identified. The suites are connected to the main lodge by elevated walkways allowing you to feel safe while still enjoying the luxury of an unfenced lodge boasting free-roaming wildlife.

Operating from May to October, Lion Camp provides a premier destination lodge experience focused solely on delivering an authentic safari adventure. Your stay includes a range of exciting outdoor activities, such as stargazing and special interest safaris, alongside luxurious amenities. You can enjoy an expansive viewing deck and indulge in a wide selection of tasty drinks at the guest lounge or immerse yourself in an armchair safari experience at the on-site game viewing hide.
