Zambia’s national parks, including Luambe, are all very safe destinations in our opinion. Luambe is mostly a fly-in destination and flying around from park to park is an extremely safe way to see the country. However you get to Luambe, your guide will look after your safety throughout your stay. To obtain the most up-to-date safety information about traveling in Luambe and Zambia in general, you should check the relevant travel advisories (see the ‘Safety & Security – Zambia’ link below).

Malaria & Vaccinations

Please consult your health-care professional about vaccinations needed to visit Zambia. Luambe lies in a malaria area, and some precautions are recommended. Cover up legs and arms in the evening and apply mosquito repellent (those containing DEET are most effective). Taking antimalarials is strongly recommended too. Ask your travel clinic or doctor which antimalarials are available and most effective in the region.

Wildlife Viewing

Wildlife viewing is generally very safe. If you heed the advice given by your guide, you should have no problems when on safari. Also, listen carefully to the safety briefing given at the lodge upon arrival. For more information, please read the ‘Wildlife Viewing Safety Precautions’ below.
