We were there in September. The action in the wildlife was really amazing. Lions hunting, dogs playing with Cubs, and the famous Olimba with her two Cubs. The chalets are a typical AFRICA Safari style, the staff in very familiar and friendly, the owner Ramon is always looking for perfection and the guide Masumba is very experienced guide and know how to anticipate to the action. Meals top top one !!!!

We had a great time there : anthentic chalets along the Luangwa river with hippos and crocs, beautiful views, very good food, a very kind, helpful and attentive staff.
Our guide, Masumba is a very experimented guide, he knows a lot about wildlife. We learnt so many things with him, we saw a lot of animals night and day, even lion and leopard's cubs !
It is a luxury to stay here in the wild, far from the world...

Safari Explorers camp offers an excellent Safari experience in one of the most beautiful and game rich parks in Zambia (if not Southern Africa). The camp is situated beautifully at the river banks of the Luangwa river - about 2 hours well spent drive from Mfue Airport. The camp offers the right balance between comfort and bush with profound guidance during the game drives. With only 4 tents (by August 2018) it offers a unique experience in the middle of wild life.

Just to say I have with my wife in September and I can say its the best camp in the area, the tents are very big and comfortable, foods are great, with a very good service. After a long drives where you can see a lot of animals you can rest perfectly... but you can hear the lions roaring every night !!! and very close to the camp !!!, Leopards are usual sighting around, big herds of buffaloes, true me its the real Africa. We are coming back next year for sure. Congrats !!!

Service and guiding: The best I never seen, very high professionals guides, with a lot of nature knowledge, not only doing his job, its his passion too. We saw Lions, Leopards, Wild Dogs, all of them hunting, loving, living...
Camp: Its very basic, but comfortable. Typical tent camp. But the luxury here is the place. Its in the best place in all the National Park. Where more animals are and the more exclusivity area.
Food: Very nice, they have 2 chefs and its abundant and nice.
Rate: 10/10. Very nice for complete family, we were there in exclusivity for us (6 people)

This place is easily one of the most beautiful places in South Luangwa National Park.Staying here is once in a lifetime expireience.The working staff there are too humble and helpful ,they never say no to anything ,If you are looking for raw adventure go for it.
The only drawback is that it is totally isolated from the world, which means no Wifi,no Mobile networks available there, but I'm sure some people might enjoy this experience.

For true nature lovers exclusively. Lions and hippos wander between the tents almost every night rocked by the screams of hyenas, roars of Lons or grunts of hippos. No generator to corrupt the sounds of the African night. Ramon and Masumba breathe wild life and are true enthusiasts. The staff is lovely too. Not to mention the game drive that Lions, wild dogs and leopards are visible almost every day (at least 2 out of 3 per day!). In short, lovers of luxury, Wi-Fi 24/24 or fresh drinks 24/24, go your way, this bush camp is not for you.

Best experience at Safari Explorers Camp in Zambia!

It was a 10 days trip, with safari game drive at each morning and evening. I can’t express how amazed I was by watching the wildest animals in their natural environment!

If you are thinking about planning a trip to Africa, this place is with not a doubt your best choice!

It has the greatest location within the Park, best hosts, accommodation and delicious food, which makes it perfect to have a beautiful time while watching true wilderness!

I was hosted by owner Ramon Díaz Bustamante, manager Masumba, and a amazing crew: Jack, Cosam, John Banda, Josephine, Blesing, John Nguni, Melvin, Raphael, Francis (chef), Juve and Banda. Their hospitality and great personality was the cherry on the cake!

I feel totally privilege of having this experience! It was my first Safari ever and will definitely come back next year!
