Our Lime tree lounge, bar & dining area offers unrivalled panoramic views while enjoying a vodka & lime our ‘un’ official drink or having a dining experience in our restaurant. And while relaxing at our centrally located elevated swimming pool you can keep an eye on the hippo’s and crocodiles in the river.
Track and Trail River Camp is open 12 months a year and so is the South Luangwa National Park.
