Before reviewing this Game Lodge and Camp, I would like to state categorically that I would 100% recommend it. My wife and I are avid amateur photographers and South Luangwa happens to be a gem in its own right,-easy to get to from the USA and not overcrowded like some of the Wildlife Parks we have visited elsewhere. The viewing... More

We stayed here in early June for three nights. We arrived after a long drive in the dark but we felt very welcome from the moment we got here. The camp is beautifully situated along the river with a great pool overlooking the Hippos's and Crocs. We camped for the first night. The campsite is very spacious with all the... More

Lodge is very comfortable, Staff friendly and the food was nice. The Elli walking through the dining area one eving was quite a sight. Pool was great for a midd... More

Our group (made up of two families of 5) were probably hard work for the staff as all 6 children were ill at some point which meant that we changed our plans at the last minute on meals and safari trips. However, we felt very relaxed as nothing was too much for the staff to accommodate. As it was our... More

We stayed here 3 nights and as it was the slow season they very nicely upgraded us to the deluxe chalet which was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom and a view of the river. My only complaint about the room were the sheets, which were thin and did not fit the bed properly... More

We spent 3 very comfortable (late) Summer nights in a Chalet. The room was cool, comfortable, quiet and the decor is elegantly rustic with stone baths and driftwood details. A truly African experience listening to the calls of Hippo and Fish Eagle at sunset. The Swimming pool was a cool delight with a lovely view of the river. All of... More

We spent 5 nights in one of the lodge's chalets facing the river. It was perfect. Very well appointed, nice desing. Quiet setting and casual, yet with a touch of distinction. The meals (3 courses) were very good and different each time. Friday, our guide was dedicated and knowledgable. We saw so many animals: leopards, lions, elephants, girafes, zebras, hippos,... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Track & Trail Lodge at the end of October. We stayed in a luxury tent overviewing the river. You just sit down and see the wildlife passing along and through the river. The hosts Peter, Kirsten and their staff are doing a very good job! The tents are very comfortable and spacious and the... More

A bit of background first, I came here as a very budget backpacker firstly on a single trip to Zambia in 2007 and then again as part of a round the world tour in 2010 so I might have different expectations and needs than other travelers. The first trip we made use of their camping ground which directly overlooks the... More

We did the special photo safari for the second time, because we liked it that much the first time! The camp is very nice, people are relaxed and friendly and the food is great (even for vegetarians, thanks to Kirsten & the chefs). South Luangwa Park has a lot to offer and Peter is able to provide the best opportunities... More
