The Luamfwa Concession is located in the wild and uncrowded (with people that is!) southern sector of the Park. Whereas for the most part the Luangwa River forms the eastern boundary of the National Park, separating the protected area from communal land and game management areas where hunting takes place, in the remote southern sector it meanders westward and both banks are protected.

It is here that Kalamu Lagoon Camp can be found, on sites that are situated on the banks of the Luangwa River in a unique section of this exceptional Park, imparting a feeling of remoteness and exclusivity.

Rooms & Suites:

Accommodation at thias spectacular Luxury Luangwa Camp consists of eight safari-style reed and canvas tents, each en-suite with both an indoor and outdoor shower.

Food & Wine:

Kalamu Lagoon Camp's dining and bar area under a canopy of giant ebony trees and a pool and viewing deck area located to the side of the camp all offer spectacular views of the lagoon that may once have been part of the South Luangwa River.


South Luangwa is renowned as the best walking destination in Africa and guests have the choice to explore the Luangwa riverine vegetation and adjacent dambos on guided walks. Other activities include day-and-night wildlife-viewing drives.

The highest concentration of wildlife is the Luangwa River and its rich vegetation. There are herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as dominant antelope species such as impala and puku. Other antelope include common waterbuck, bushbuck, eland, kudu, grysbok, oribi, reedbuck, Lichtenstein's hartebeest, sable and roan.

Species such as Thornicroft's giraffe and Cookson's wildebeest occur nowhere else in the world and the area's leopard viewing is legendary. The main predators are lion, leopard, spotted hyaena and wild dogs.

The dry season along the Luangwa River - when all game is forced to congregate along its banks as water resources dwindle elsewhere - is an experience every Africa fan should indulge in.

High-density hippo populations dot the riverbanks while yellow baboon provide a contrast to their southern cousins.
