    Default where to camp in south luangwa?

    Please help - we are starting to plan a trip next year from mana pools to south luangwa. Please recommend appropriate camp sites, prefferable at the river in the park.

    Any advice regarding the road will much appreciated - can you do the trip in a day?

    Kind regards
    Marna

    All of the campsites are on the river, and none of them are in the park. They are all around the Mfuwe entrance across from the park in a GMA, and they're all excellent. Beware that Flatdogs doesn't allow camping between July 1st and Oct 1st.

    The only camp with camping on the Luangwa is Croc Valley. They have green lawns and lots of shade.....I did post some pics of the camp...great place!

    Well, when I camped in Wilderness Camp last year I'm pretty damn sure that the river running right below my camp-site was the Luangwa!

    I say again, all of the campsites are on the Luangwa, in the GMA outside the park.
