To give this property a poor or terrible rating is not "quite right". The property is good, great location. The staff are wonderful. The food is very good. The SAFETY is questionable. Whilst we were in the valley we were aware of 3 break ins / thefts within 36 hours. One we personally experienced here at River Camp, being woken...

We had the most memorable, amazing holiday with Robin Pope safaris. Luangwa River Camp lived up to our expectations and more! The staff were so attentive and helpful. Yvonne, the Manager, is the most consummate of professionals. Her attention to detail and understanding of clients requirements is second to none. Nothing was too much trouble. The thoughtful touches and memorable...

This was without a doubt our favourite lodge out of the four we stayed at in Zambia. Our guide, Yona, was second to none and such a delightful man. We feel incredibly lucky that we were able to learn so much from such a talented chap and can’t believe how much we saw with him in just 3 days. During...

Terrific location and the accommodation is spacious and contains all this is necessary including English 3 pin plug sockets. Game viewing here is excellent on my first day I sighted 4 leopards, one will a crocodile kill it was carrying back!!!! The food is utterly sublime and I only wished I had a bigger appetite to have seconds.

Want to feel like a member of the family...yet get treated like royalty? Here's the place! Everything about this camp was fabulous: the game drives, our guide Jona, Doudi, our spotter, Peter, the cooks!!, the cleanliness and comfort. Way up there on the 'excellent' scale. All was well organised and everyone seemed to be there for the express purpose of...

Only stayed two nights but the camp is excellent. A good location just outside the park over looking the river. We watched lions on the far bank whilst having breakfast. Our guide Bradston was very good. The food is great and all the staff professional and helpful. The camp manger Yvonne was a brilliant host. Animal sightings were plentiful and...

An incredible experience for my family and for our friend's family. The welcome was so warm, the service exceptional, the food amazing, the cleanliness wonderful, the accommodation comfortable and relaxing, and the pool a welcome break after safari trips. The highlight though are the twice-daily safari drives. Our jeep was led by Jonna and he was amazing not only at...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Luangwa River Camp and would have loved to have stayed longer. We were very impressed with the staff, ambience of the camp, accommodation and the food. Our guide Yona had very good knowledge of the area and the fauna and flora. We had excellent viewings of four separate Leopards, saw Wild Dogs twice and...
