At Puku Ridge 8 luxury safari tents are set high on a rocky outcrop, with one of the best views in Zambia across the Kakumbi Floodplain. The camp is set deeper within South Luangwa than most, giving access to the more remote south and the busier areas further north. The suites feature custom-made and thoughtfully-sourced furniture and design elements. They have stunning outdoor showers and private plunge pools and each tent has its own star-bed. A night spent under the stars with the sounds of the wild all around is truly magical. There is air conditioning which is a lovely respite on a hot afternoon.
The waterhole brings animals in front of the main area and the camp’s hide is perfect for photography or undisturbed wildlife watching. Activities are land-based with day and night game drives and excellent walking safaris. Hekaya recommends Puku Ridge to the discerning traveller wishing a mix of luxury, superior wildlife viewing/guiding knowledge, and an approachable, comfortable atmosphere.
