A further 10km up the Luwi River from its sister-camp, Nsolo, Luwi is an equally rustic camp set under a group of tall shady trees (Vitex, Breonadia and Khaya nyusica), looking out over a small plain. The chalets are similarly reed and thatch, with grass matting covering their earth floors, mosquito nets, storm lanterns, solar lights and a small veranda. Three chalets have twin beds, while the fourth has a double (it's a particularly lovely room). All have en-suite facilities. Two of the twins have these under thatch, the other two chalets have their toilet, shower and wash-basin under the sky.
A very short walk leads to a large, permanent lagoon at a bend in the river (usually frequented by a pod of about 60 hippos). This is purely a camp for walking: either for day walks based here, or for walks linking with Nsolo, Kakuli and Mchenja Bushcamps. It's not a camp for taking drives and seldom takes more than seven guests. Time at Luwi is often combined with its sister bushcamps and/or a few nights at Kapani.
