10Puku Ridge in Zambia

Opened in 2020, Puku Ridge is the premier luxury property in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park.

Unlike other safari lodges, it has its own on-site hide, right below the restaurant, where guests can sit in the comfort of the structure and photograph the wildlife that frequent Puku Ridge’s watering hole. Depending on the time of the day, it’s either predator or prey. Rates start around $1,000 per night.
