A very special place. The camp is set in a stunning setting beneath a magnificent grove of ebony trees on the banks of the Luangwa river. The camp has a resident troop of baboons that kept us entertained on many an occasion, and presence of a leopard in camp causing nightly ructions with the baboon and monkey troops! Hippos honk and chomp outside your tent door, bush buck and impala graze in between the delightful tents ... The game viewing in this area is superb and night drives usually produce some predator activity. The sightings were awesome. Hospitality was fantastic and we appreciated all the individual personalised attention to detail. Once again we experienced perfectly organised service, delightful, well trained staff, very customer friendly guides, wonderful accommodation and a tasteful and plentiful cuisine. We hope to be back very soon!
