Puku Ridge Tented Camp (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia
Puku Ridge tented camp is located1 in a remote wildlife area in South Luangwa National Park. Puku Ridge is located in a very high game rich wild life area. For millennia, this low, rocky ridge has overlooked the wide, water-rich valley. From this vantage point among the trees, predators and hunters would quietly observe the prolific hunting grounds spread out below.
But now visitors come to Puku Ridge to revel in the abundance of wildlife and the comforts of a traditional old-world safari camp. Named for the elusive Puku antelope which never strays far from water, this beautiful camp among the trees overlooks a sweeping expanse of the fertile Kakumbi dambo (valley). Here, the living is easy for both visitors and wildlife.
Puku Ridge Tented Camp is small and intimate, built unobtrusively close to the wild.
Each of the six comfortably furnished safari tents has its own lavish bathroom which provides the option of taking a shower with the sun on your shoulders.
6 Spacious walk-in canvas safari tents with a wrap around view of the flood plains below. Each tent contains private bathroom facilities. Well-lit pathways cleared of undergrowth connect the tents to the main bar/lounge. The natural vegetation has been left as undisturbed as possible.
