Memorable stay with a lot of animals in the national park and close to the camp at the hides and waterholes!! So nice!! And a very good view on the river! On our 2 game drives per day for 5 days we saw so much animals and beautiful landscape! Absolutely amazing! And John was a

My wife , daughter(25 years old) and myself visited Wildlife Camp as part of a 41 day Overland truck tour of Africa. This was by far our favourite camp, largely due to the Elephant hide and having a herd of elephants walk through the camp. There is also a Hippo hide, though we

In the Wildlife Camp you can only sleep in the safari tents, because they have the best view and location. Beautiful. The campsite is also OK, but little shade and very annoying monkeys. Many Overland Trucks camp here, then it can get very loud. The Pool is near the bar with the

Dear SibDD, Many thanks for your nice review of our camp. We are quite fortunate to have the "best Sundowner view directly at the Luangwa!" If guests do wish for a Chalet, they are available. Yes, the Yellow Baboons & Vervet Monkeys will take your dinner roll if you turn your back on your table. Thankfully, we do not have Chacma Baboons (as Livingstone does.) They are cheeky enough to take food out of your hand! There are trees in the campsite that give more shade during the Green Season. Also, each campsite has a shelter with electricity and a light for night. Please do not hesitate to ask if we have Overland Trucks when booking again. We know of their arrivals more than 1 year in advance. With our new online booking system on our website, you can book a specific campsite, possibly away from others depending upon other bookings. I hope you return. Happy travels, Camiel

Dear Adrian, Thank you for your elaborate description and 5 stars. I have learned in my 40 years that things happen when they happen, that is certainly true here. I'm glad Levy, Moffat, Japhet, Sipi, Lupheyo, and the rest of the workshop were able to sort out your repair. I will do a Safari Tent inspection today to be sure all the lights are working. We are fortunate with our situation to have a Billion Kwacha view of sunsets over South Luangwa National Park just across the river. I hope you return to us! All the best, Camiel

We slept in a permanent tent. The room was not clean. The linen looked rather dodgy (I prefer white linen). The water – heated by gas – for the shower was warm. We reported to one of the workers on the terrain that our bathroom light was not working. He promised that someone

Dear Corene, Thank you for the review and details of your stay. My apologies for the room cleanliness and light. Please do not hesitate to e'mail me at info@wildlifezambia.com with what was specifically not clean. Our housekeepers can learn from this and they are willing to oblige if something is noted to reception while guests are in camp. We are a budget lodge with rustic accommodations and as you saw, our focus is on the Wildlife. And yes, the little wildlife (non-poisonous spiders) are close to you, adding to the adventure! The water geyser is heated by electricity (not gas) and occasionally we lose mains electricity which may be the reason for warm water. I am happy to hear you had an amazing experience. We hope you return. All the best, Camiel

Thank you for the questions Qazwdc123. Emirates, Ethiopian, Kenya, and KLM are all good airlines that I have used myself. Upon landing in Lusaka, you will then take Proflight Zambia (the only option) from Lusaka to Mfuwe Airport. (They can also be booked online.) Antimalarias and yellow fever certificate are not required. It is a personal preference as to whether or not to take the medicines. I live here without the antimalarias, there are others who do take them. (I prefer to take the risk of malaria over the risk of medicine side effects.) Walking Safaris are available June - October. The cost is $55 per person per walk inside the Park and $45 pppw outside. (This does not include Park Fees.) All the best, Camiel
