Sleep Outs

Share this article on

Sleep outs are for the more adventurous looking to become in tune with the wilderness of the Luangwa.

After a buffet lunch and siesta in the camp, guests shower and prepare for their night out in the bush. Tea and cake is enjoyed in camp and then the group sets off on a short afternoon activity, at the end of which they arrive at the sleep-out location. This is usually on a wide open beach on the banks of the Mwaleshi river.

Feast on a delicious dinner cooked over the flames of a raw wood fire out on a remote bend of the Mwaleshi river. Sip on a night cap around the fire before retiring to bed – a camper mattress on the ground tucked under a net leaving unobstructed views of the night’s sky.

The safety of having an experienced guide and armed scout nearby ensures a sweet nights sleep while you listen to the natural calls of the bush.

The next morning, a light breakfast is enjoyed at dawn and then the group sets off for a morning walking activity back to camp.

Sleep outs must be pre-booked as they are a ‘whole camp’ activity. They may be done at no additional cost.
