I thought this image might be of interest to those readers who have visited this part of the park before. It is an aerial photograph of Lion Camp. My wife Sarah and I live in the backwards L shaped building on the bottom right. You can make out the chalets of the camp lining the oxbow lagoon or ‘Wafwa’ which is the old river course of the Luangwa. At this time of year it fills with water but come the safari season it dries out and becomes a grazing area for a whole host of different animal species – which in turn attracts lots of lions!. It is certainly one of the best areas in the whole of the Luangwa for game-viewing and photography. As you can see from the photo we are pretty much in the middle of nowhere – it really is a magical place.
