Marula Lodge

We invite you to come and stay with us at Marula Lodge, the closest camp to the main entrance gate of the South Luangwa National Park.

Our comfortable, affordable chalets provide the perfect haven for your Zambian safari getaway!
On the outer perimeter of the camp, each chalet has just enough seclusion to make you feel at home with the chance to “put your feet up” between busy game viewing drives.

With luck, you could even wake up with an elephant at your doorstep!

Relax in your chalet, jump into the pool for a refreshing swim or, indulge yourself whilst sitting in the shade of the magnificent trees at the river’s edge. All the while, let yourself be taken care of by our quiet, professional and unobtrusive staff.

If you just cannot tear yourself away from the outside world during your stay, there is wireless internet access available in the camp. Mobile phone reception is good throughout the South Luangwa area.

All of this is tailored to ensure a memorable holiday – one that will linger in your mind long after you return home and that will keep you thinking “I’d love to do that again!”

Backpackers! We also have a small but lovely mixed dorm just for you.


Our Restaurant, Bar and Lounge

At the hub of the camp are the lounge, dining room and bar.  Our experienced chefs cater to all tastes, whether you choose from our daily menu or the fantastic full-board fare.  They use fresh local produce and plenty of imagination, happily satisfying all vegetarian and Halaal requirements too!
