Puku Ridge is a traditional tented safari camp named after the endemic puku antelope, which are prolific in South Luangwa. The camp is located on a secluded ridge in the national park and overlooks the water-rich Kakumbu Valley. There are six spacious canvas tents each with indoor and outdoor showers, a sunken bath, mosquito nets, ceiling fans, and a private verandah. Luangwa Park is home to many species of African animals including leopards, a large spotted hyena population, and the endangered wild dogs. There is also significant population of elephants, lions, antelope, and over 400 species of birds.
