There are two main areas at Luwombwa. One, an open-sided thatched structure on the banks of the river, is where breakfast and lunch are generally served. A long wooden table, flanked by benches, is laid with an ethnic-print tablecloth and dishes are laid out in a buffet style. There are also a few deck chairs here where you can enjoy the views.
As well as elephant, buffalo and thousands of puku, you'll find Sharp's grysbok, Lichtenstein's hartebeest, sable and the shy roan antelope. Kasanka's predators are shy, but hyena, lion and leopard do occur, along with a host of mongooses, and the rare, slender-snouted crocodile.
