From the moment our guide Lawrence picked us up at Mchenja camp we knew we were going to have a great time. Frank the camp manager welcomed us with open arms. He is an excellent host,...

We started our two week trip with Luwi as advised by Aardvark safaris. It was a wonderful, peaceful and comfortable start. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the rigours of the trip from London was very soon behind us. Lawrence was a great guide

Moreover Frank was an excellent host and we enjoyed the time with him...

Luwi was our second stop on a seven night safari with Norman Carr safaris and we had an absolute blast with the team there!! The chalets are very comfortable and the wildlife viewing is spectacular in every way...we saw a leopard right outside our little patio on one of the nights (not to worry we were safely inside!) and on...

We had a memorable time at Luwi Bush Camp back in June. It was the remoteness of the camp that really sets it apart. You're not likely to run into another safari jeep and the opportunity to get out of the jeep and go on walking safaris really makes you feel part of nature because you take the time to...

Luwi was the first of the 4 Norman Carr bush camps we visited and we loved all of them. They all provide enough 'luxuries' to make your stay comfortable whilst never losing sight of what makes staying in a bush camp so special. We flew into Mfuwe and were met by Brian, Luwi's manager and guide. It is worth considering...
