Track and Trail River Camp is a privately owned lodge located on a breathtaking spot on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking the South Luangwa National Park. We are an owner run lodge that is specialized in photographic safaris and offer our guests all the comforts, while being situated in untouched wilderness.

Track and Trail River Camp is located in the Lupande game management area and only a five minutes drive from the main entrance of the South Luangwa National Park. The camp offers a unique natural experience. Facilities and accommodation are scattered along the river frontage, surrounded by bushes are two more secluded chalets, build on elevated platforms.

Track and Trail River Camp’s down to earth feel is reflected in its relaxing atmosphere and its naturally-designed architecture. Local traditions of hospitality are combined with modern comforts such as an elevated swimming pool with unrevealed river view, an open air gym, a restaurant offering international dishes and a ‘Lime tree’ bar.

Our South Luangwa accommodation offers charming options ranging from double and single storey chalets and our honeymoon suite is the perfect choice to celebrate precious anniversaries!




The Hide

Our photographic hide is situated at a lagoon and most effective during the dry months from July to December.

During these months daily visitors  coming to the hide, like giraffe, hippo, elephant, various antelope species and a lot of bird life. The highlight will be the elephants which will also come down to the photographic hide to cool themselves down and to take a dust bath.

At the moment we are trying to get the local kingfishers to get used to a fish-tank, with small bream. So anyone interested would be able to take pictures of various kingfishers actively fishing, with impact both on top and in the water.
