Escape to Africa and hideaway in a remote yet stylish camp. Revel in wildlife while immersing yourself in a traditional safari at Sanctuary Puku Ridge Camp.
Perched on a ridge overlooking a floodplain in the South Luangwa National Park, Puku Ridge Camp offers stunning vistas with perfect game sighting opportunities. South Luangwa is one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world and is home to over 60 types of mammal. Local residents include lions, zebras and antelope as well as over 400 species of bird. The camp is close to the game-rich but busy Mfuwe area of the park, but it also has access to the quieter southern areas for more exclusive wildlife viewing.
Puku Ridge Camp is an intimate camp that blends into its surroundings; seamlessly allowing guests to get up and close and personal with the world outside without becoming too intrusive. Designed to leave no trace on the environment, the camp has embraced traditional decor and offers a first class service when it comes to hospitality.
Dining options at Puku Ridge are some of its most memorable offerings. Personalised service ensures each visitor is catered for in not only culinary tastes but also time and location of dining. The exposed central dining area serves gourmet meals in the bush or for a particularly unforgettable meal, head to your own private deck for a romantic evening of dining under the stars.
With a wealth of nocturnal wildlife activity, you’re bound to spot a friendly face or two in the distance. Listen out for the local Puku antelope whistling to one other when there is danger in the air and take in the uninterrupted night time views of the National Park skies.
Days are Puku Ridge are spent embarking on a range of game activities including private walking tours and guided drives. There’s plenty of time for relaxation too during the afternoons at the camp’s large living area.
There are only seven safari tents on site and each has picture windows and viewing decks overlooking the plains; a prime game viewing spot as they had to the watering hole. The tents have an en-suite bathroom with bath tub and shower, as well as an outdoor shower shaded by forest, all stocked with environmentally friendly products for pure indulgence. Lie in bed and watch the sun rise before observing elephants bathing from the comfort of your bath tub. This really is a hotel experience like no other.
Zambia has a moderate to sub-tropical climate with three distinct seasons with rainy season being from November to March. For game-viewing, the drier months are the best time to visit whereas superb bird-watching opportunities are available at the end of the rains.
A walk on the wild side has never been so appealing.
