Time + Tide Safaris Revamps Seasonal Safari Camps in Zambia

Luxury safari outfitter Time + Tide has unveiled the redesign of its three seasonal camps–Time + Tide MchenjaTime + Tide Kakuli and Time + Tide Luwi–inviting travelers to experience the beauty of Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park.

Tucked into an ebony grove beside the Luangwa River, Time + Tide Mchenja offers five bedrooms, including a two-bedroom, two-bathroom family safari room. The spaces offer a tranquil setting featuring grass walls and soft fabrics, combining to create a fresh and feminine look that gives a distinctive nod to the nymphaea lily of the area. Overlooking a wide river expanse, the camp is an ideal spot for listening to bellowing hippos or watching large herds of elephants feed on seed pods in the Luangwa.

Bold and striking in its new design and as its name suggests, Time + Tide Kakuli is a tribute to conservationist Norman Carr and the history of the area. Perched above the Luangwa River, the camp offers sweeping vistas of the river and its many visitors below. Designed to celebrate the panoramic riverside setting, its five bright and airy bedrooms have a long, low profile and a modern, masculine design. The main area overlooks a permanent waterhole and the river beyond, promising game viewing right from the comfort of camp.

Nestled in a grove of ancient mahogany trees, Time + Tide Luwi has been completely rebuilt to offer a rustic and authentic experience in the African bush. Situated deep in the park on the ephemeral Luwi River with just four individual tents, Time + Tide Luwi is remote with no other camps for miles around. From the comfort of the open-air lounge, guests can enjoy moments around the campfire watching wildlife on the grassy plains and breathe in the aroma of African jasmine as it drifts on a cool breeze.

Guests can customize their itinerary with one or two camps, or even combine them all into one adventure. Stretching out over 3,475 square miles and only an hour’s flight away from Lusaka, the South Luangwa National Park is known as the home of the walking safari, a legacy from conservationist Carr, where for generations their Zambian guides have walked guests between each seasonal camp, encouraging them to pause, slow down and “touch the earth”. Activities include boating safaris, tracking big cat tracks in the sand, fireside dining in the wild and the signature sleep-out–where guests will fall asleep under a canopy of stars whilst listening to the susurrations of the night-time bush.

Rates are inclusive of all meals, transfers to/from the local airport and game-viewing activities.
