Lion Camp is one of the most remote of the seasonal camps in the northern part of Zambia's renowned South Luangwa National Park. An independent camp set on an oxbow lagoon, enjoy fantastic game viewing from camp away from the more congested Mfuwe area.
Spotting lions in the wild is one of the most revered and romanticised safari encounters. Watching a solitary lioness stalk her prey or hearing the fearsome roar of a majestic male are truly soul-stirring safari experiences. Whilst seeing this big cat in the wild is sadly becoming a rare privilege, healthy populations remain across Africa, most notably in Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe.
As the cornerstone of a memorable safari, finding the right destination to see lions in the wild is crucial. Tanzania boasts the world’s largest lion population, with diverse habitats ranging from the Serengeti to Lake Manyara. In Zimbabwe, walking safaris give visitors the opportunity to get within paces of the majestic animals for a heart-in-mouth safari experience.
Whilst in Botswana and Zambia, lions are known to hunt during the day, providing a unique opportunity to see the cats ambush their prey in broad daylight. From the plains of the Masai Mara to the Okavango Delta, Africa’s dramatic landscapes provide the perfect setting for a once in a lifetime encounter with the King of the Jungle.
