Recommend an incredible place to stay.

Luwi Camp, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia:  four simple huts in the middle of nowhere, constructed from local materials – grass, bamboo and thatch – that are taken down at the end of each season.  There’s no electricity, the floors are of dirt, yet it’s remarkably comfortable and the en suite bathrooms provide an all-day hot showers. There’s no dining room – lunch is taken in the shade of giant mahogany trees, while dinner is at a table under the stars to the accompaniment of the sounds of the Zambian night. There are fine views over the floodplain of the Luwi River, nearby is a permanent lagoon filled with hippos and crocodiles, and wildlife wanders through the camp at will. Entertainment consists of listening to tales around the campfire.  In short, it’s the perfect location for a walking safari. Magical, mysterious, memorable – for all the right reasons…
