It's an exciting time at Lion Camp

As I write, our water filtration experts are installing a new system which will ensure crystal clear water throughout the camp and our interiors crew are putting the finishing touches in place.
WILDLIFE UPDATE

The Luangwa River is higher than usual for this time of year and the oxbow lagoon in front of camp is full. For the elephants it's a perfect place to take a bath and for our staff watching the elephants from camp is a perfect excuse for a well-earned break. 

We have also had a number of lions visiting camp this month. They have been heard roaring in the night and seen mating in the day so hopefully we will have some new cubs in 3 months time. The lions were also recently sighted on a buffalo kill just outside camp. We've posted a video of this sighting on our Facebook page if you'd like to take a look https://web.facebook.com/LionCampSafari.

STAFF SPOTLIGHT: LION CAMP'S NEW MANAGERS WAYNE & VICKY NEL

Lion Camp is pleased to welcome Wayne and Vicky Nel as our new lodge managers. 

Wayne and Vicky have been working in the safari and tourism industry for 24 years. They joined Mantis in 2011 launching the Zambezi Queen, a set of 4 luxury houseboats on the Chobe River. They have since been involved in several Mantis development projects culminating in the new Lion Camp.

In Vicky's own words, "Being sent to assist with the opening of Lion Camp and managing it is a dream come true. We have worked all over Africa and in Zambia on 2 previous occasion but always wanted to do a project in Luangwa. So here we are, working hard to meet deadlines and be ready to open for guests at the end of May. The setting is spectacular and the lodge will be amazing. The subtle modern touches and upgrades together with the Mantis 5* flair will ensure a very special safari experience - a definite bucket list venue."




Until next time,

Sarah and the Lion Camp team
