Newly renovated with no detail forgotten, Puku Ridge is a luxury safari lodge in the heart of South Luangwa National Park worth escaping to.
With only eight luxury tents sat on an elevated ridge, you’ll feel at one with this refined wilderness. Drawing inspiration from the bygone era of South Luangwa bush camps, elements of traditional village life and authentic local artwork have been seamlessly integrated. Elegant architectural lines are encompassed by trees and scrub bush, all warmed by gentle lanterns as the night creeps in.
Puku Ridge is blessed with an outlook onto a private floodplain and watering hole, an elevated landscape enriched by the rolling gait of giraffe, the heart-shaped nose of the puku (antelope), and the twilight whoop of the hyena – seemingly unphased by its visitors.
Puku Ridge is affectionately known as the 'Valley of the Leopard,' owing to the park's remarkable population density of these elusive animals. Whether it's during the heat of the day or under the cover of night, sightings of leopards are plentiful and exhilarating.
Post renovation, you’ll find enhanced facilities, service and guiding to the highest standard. While maintaining its quality promise, the camp has a reenergised focus on minimising its environmental impact. Relax in the indoor and outdoor lounges with loved ones as you learn about the local wildlife, savour delicious food from the camp restaurant, and take your sundowner out to the campfire as the night awakens.
