Luangwa Valley Zambia


Norman Carr Safaris has earned a reputation for the quality and range of food served. Whether you are in the main lodge or one of the remote bush camps you can expect cuisine of the highest standards.

The chefs in all of our camps have been trained in-house and they are more than happy to cater to any personal requests. If your food preferences could possibly be regarded as out of the ordinary then it would be easier if you informed us in advance of your arrival, however simple choices of vegetarian, vegan or other fare should be discussed with your hosts on arrival.

Days in the bush usually start early so a light breakfast is served at dawn before your first safari. A lavish buffet brunch will be awaiting your return to camp and is served at around 11:00am with the rest of the guests in camp, your host and guide. Afternoon tea and cake is taken at about 3:30pm before the evening safari and dinner for everyone is served between 7.00pm and 8:30pm. Dinner in the camps consists of a three-course meal, freshly prepared, cooked in camp and served to you at your table. All meals, comprising breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea and dinner, are included in the price of your safari.

Recipes from Our Kitchen

One of the most common requests we have from people staying with us is for a ‘Recipe Book’; our chefs' ingenuity in producing fantastic meals from the smallest of kitchens have won many accolades from our guests. Here is a selection of some of our favorite recipes, many of which have been requested time and time again by those who have sampled them in camp!
