Luwi’s minimalistic yet high-quality design makes this Norman Carr’s most adventurous property. Its style goes hand in hand with the camp’s focus on authentic safari – it is a huge hit with safari enthusiasts and travellers looking for a ‘real’ experience.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Luwi is located in the remote central area of South Luangwa National Park. It is a walking-focused camp that is miles away from any other camps or people.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The camp is made up of just four rooms that are made out of natural materials and rebuilt every year, then dismantled at the end of the season. They are hidden among the trees in front of a clearing just off the Luwi riverbed. There is a lagoon very close by, home to crocodiles and a wonderful pod of noisy hippo.
Many of Norman Carr’s guides love Luwi more than any of the other Norman Carr camps. We would certainly agree that it is a wonderful camp if walking is your priority. The area is famous for its lions – tracking them on foot is a particularly unforgettable experience. For non-walkers we would recommend Mchenja Bush Camp or Kakuli Bush Camp, where there is a better mix of activities. However, we would encourage as many people as possible to try Luwi for a night or two! It is one of those places that really grows on you.
