Puku Ridge Camp
Puku Ridge Camp is in a remote part of the South Luangwa NP, overlooking a wildlife-rich lagoon where there is seemingly always something to see. The camp was rebuilt completely in 2019 after its purchase from Sanctuary Retreats by Chichele Safaris and is a collaboration with Chiawa Safaris of Chiawa Camp & Old Mondoro repute. With this comes "Best in Africa" award winning hospitality and guiding.
The design is African canvas/chic style and the camp blends in completely with its gorgeous, wild environment. This is a luxury camp with every comfort yet it is intimate and friendly with just eight tents, and offers the authentic safari experience that many people long for.
The Park is endowed with abundant with elephants, giraffes, leopards, lions, wild dogs, zebras, buffalos and various antelope species – many of which will be easily spotted as you lounge on your balcony or eat dinner. This stunning area can also be explored on foot with park rangers and tracking guides, and at night offering a chance to see some of the more elusive animals, such as leopards, genets and honey badgers. Sunset is a perfect time to enjoy a cocktail in the bush, or on the banks of the Luangwa River in the company of one of Africa's largest hippo populations.
