What medical precautions should I take?
Malaria is present in the Luangwa valley so we recommend you take malaria prophylactics – antimalarials reduce the risk of malaria by at least 90% - please consult your doctor and at the same time check whether you need any additional vaccinations.
What happens if I have a medical emergency?
In the case of a medical emergency, Lion Camp is a paid-up member of a local Medical Scheme which provides an international Doctor based in the nearest village (Mfuwe) who will visit the camp for a standard 'call-out rate' of $200 and will provide in-camp medical assistance. Any medicines required are charged on top. In case of a serious medical emergency requiring hospitalisation, we advise all guests to include 'evacuation' on their insurance.
