Photographic Safaris are a new addition to our products at Wildlife Camp Zambia. Although we have been conducting Game-drives and other activities in the South Luangwa National Park since 1992, we have now decided to do Photographic Specific tours starting in 2019. We have Set date tours that will run specific dates and we have Custom tours that will be organised according to the photographer’s needs. More information on the Photographic Safaris page.

Our vehicle has been customised to fit 5 x photographers and 1 x tour-leader – 6 seats total, 3 comfortable single seats on each side with a custom box in the centre to store some accessories or camera gear. The vehicle is fitted with 6 x pipe swing arms for clamps to be attached.

The canvas roof can be removed in minutes so the vehicle can either be used with the roof or without. The photographic safaris will be conducted by an experienced qualified guide and an experienced wildlife photographer all with one goal in mind, to give you the best possible wildlife photography experience.

At camp we have two photographic hides where water is pumped in the dry months to attract game in the area. We are also looking at new exclusive hides on our private land.



Are we situated in the park?

No we are situated just across the Luangwa river from the park in prime riverfront property of about 400 hectares. All animals found in the park can be found in and around our camp.

How to get here?

From Lusaka Zambia you can either travel by road which will take 9-10 hours, or fly in with which is a 1:15 minutes flight.

You can also enter from Lilongwe Malawi and then be transferred by road through the border up to the camp.

Is this a Malaria area?

Yes it is, we advise to consult your local doctor before you take the trip to South Luangwa.

When is the best time to see animals?

During the rainy season, the vegetation gets very thick and most of the smaller loop roads are not accessible, but it’s cooler and there are still good sightings.

In the drier months, September to October, it is very hot and the vegetation is almost gone. The water levels are low and most lagoons have dried up, but sightings are great in this period.

Do we close in the rainy season?

No we are open year round

Can I pay with cards?

Yes we accept Visa and Mastercard, 3% surcharge is added when paying by card
