Sanctuary Puku Ridge Camp, named after the Puku antelope that graze the floodplains in its vicinity, is perched high on an escarpment in a remote part of the South Luangwa. The camp has embraced a very natural African chic style in its decoration, blending in completely with its local environment. This is a classic, traditional tented bush camp, intimate and friendly with just seven tents, offering the authentic safari experience that many people long for.

The region is abundant with elephants, lions, wild dogs, buffalos, hippos, wildebeests and antelopes – many of which will be easily spotted as you lounge on your balcony or eat dinner. This stunning park can also be explored on foot with park rangers and tracking guides, offering a chance to see some of the more elusive animals, such as leopards, the genet cats, and honey badgers. Sunset is a perfect time to enjoy a cocktail in the bush, or on the banks of the Luangwa River watching a hippo swimming party.
