THREE RIVERS CAMP – SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK

Three Rivers Camp is set at the confluence of the Luangwa, Kapamba and Lusangazi Rivers in the South Luangwa National Park. There are just 5 elegant and stylish tents which sit under shady sausage trees facing the Luangwa River or lagoon.

The camp was the first to be established on the border of the Malama Chiefdom and the National Park and its location is simply spectacular. The rooms are set far apart with the wildlife passing through camp. The dining area offers views of both the Luangwa and the Kapamba River where hippos love to bask on the white river sand. Three of the tents are positioned right on the edge of the oxbow lagoon which is teeming with wildlife.

A very unique feature of the camp is that each tent has its own private sleep out – safely connected to the tent for convenient access day and night. Spend a night on the plush star beds surrounded only by the sights and sounds of the African bush.

If you are moving on to Island Bush Camp we recommend the experience of walking between both camps.

LOCATION

Three Rivers Camp is located in the south of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. Access is by flight from Lusaka to Mfuwe and it is an hour’s drive to Kafunta River Lodge and then a further two hours’ drive south to Three Rivers Camp.

CAMP

Three Rivers Camp is a small and intimate camp with only five spacious tents, elegantly decorated with natural materials, traditional textiles and earthy hues. The large gauzed windows offer extensive views of the Luangwa River and the nearby lagoon. Each tent has its own wooden deck with comfy chairs to enjoy the surrounding vistas and the ensuite bathrooms include indoor and outdoor showers, double sinks and flushing toilets. All the tents offer a private sleep-out experience.

The dining lounge is set on the banks of the river with a welcoming bar and relaxing chairs. Observe the many hippos and crocodiles basking on the beaches ahead and keep your camera at hand to capture the swift African Skimmer or colourful bee-eater. After dinner relax by the fire and look up at the millions of stars or listen to lions roaring in the distance.

With the same high standards as Kafunta River Lodge the kitchen provides delicious meals: a sumptuous buffet for brunch and elegant, candlelit dinners served by the river.

ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE

The South Luangwa National Park has year-round access and is one of Africa’s ecologically unspoilt wilderness areas. The national park encompasses 9,050 square km and is home to over 420 bird species and over 60 species of mammals. The park is renowned for its high leopard population and these elusive creatures are commonly seen on night drives. The park is also home to large elephant herds and there are a great number of hippo and crocodile in the river. Lions are commonly seen in South Luangwa National Park and it is the only place in the world where they are known to kill hippos. The lion prides here include up to 20 individuals. Species endemic to Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park are the Thornicroft giraffe and the Cookson’s wildebeest.

Game Drives – are the most popular way to discover the park and observe all the astounding wildlife and birdlife of the South Luangwa. We offer morning and afternoon game drives with our qualified guides in customised open vehicles. The afternoon drive extends as a night drive.

Night Drives – afternoon game drives continue after sunset to have the unique opportunity to observe those animals which are active only at night and to have a chance to see the larger predators such as leopards, lions and hyenas on the move and possibly hunting.

Walking Safaris – the Luangwa Valley is one of the few places in Africa where it is possible to walk in the wilderness. Under the guidance of our professional guides and an armed national park scout you have the opportunity to safely discover the secrets of the African bush close up.

Birding Safaris – the South Luangwa is a paradise for keen bird watchers with over 420 recorded species of birds including 39 birds of prey and 47 migrant species. If you are a dedicated ornithologist, we offer specialised birding safaris with our passionate guides. Prior arrangement and private vehicle recommended.

THREE RIVERS CAMP IS CLOSED FROM THE 1ST NOVEMBER TO THE 24TH MAY EVERY YEAR

THE CAMP WELCOMES FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN AGED 12 YEARS AND OLDER. DO NOTE THAT ONLY CHILDREN AGED 12 YEARS AND OLDER CAN PARTICIPATE IN WALKING SAFARIS
