Location

Bridge Campis ideally placed for travelers as a stop-over point between Malawi, South Luangwa National Park and Lusaka, Victoria Falls.

The Lodge itselfis situated in the hills overlooking the Luangwa River, 230 kms from Lusaka on the Great East Road.

Coming from Lusaka, just before the Luangwa Bridge, turn right for 3km onto Feira Road (good dirt road immediately after roadside market - Bridge Camp is signposted at turn-off to Luangwa). Driving time from Lusaka is 2.5 hours, on a very good, rebuilt section of the Great East Road.

Coming from Chipata, about 1.5 kms after crossing the bridge over the river, turn left for 3km onto Feira Road.
