Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp offers an authentic walking safari in Zambia like no other.

Guests explore the pristine and unspoilt wilderness of the South Luangwa National Park with one of Zambia's most experienced safari guides while staying in luxurious 'under canvas style' tents - this is the ultimate bush adventure by foot.

Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp is perched on a sand bank at the confluence of the Luangwa and Chibembe Rivers. The unspoilt bush around camp is home to large populations of zebra, elephant, buffalo, crocodile and puku, as well as various endemic species and over 400 bird species. The diversity of habitats here provide from some of the most spectacular walking in Africa over terrain that is ideal for exploring with plenty of shade and long sweeping views.

Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp is a luxury safari camp with just four traditional tents (two doubles and two twins). The camp accommodates a maximum of six guests, allowing for an intimate exploration of the South Luangwa. All tents have real beds, campaign furniture, mosquito nets, en-suite facilities and flush toilets. Water for al fresco showers is mixed to your preferred temperature by a tent attendant.

The main mess tent has a dining area although most of the gourmet meals will be served in the open in carefully selected vantage points . There is also a small library and bar area.

Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp is a seasonal camp which operates from June to November each year and will open for the first time on June 1, 2011. The camp has been designed to leave the lowest possible carbon footprint and is packed up completely each year with no trace that it was ever there between seasons.

In order to fully explore this beautiful part of Africa, guests will spend three nights at Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp. We suggest combining a walking safari with a stay at either Puku Ridge Camp or Chichele Presidential Lodge, both in the South Luangwa National Park.
