The Hide

We are the only lodge with a photographic hide on a private property in the Luangwa Valley, situated at a lagoon. The hide will be most effective during the dry months from July to December.

During these months we have 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.
