THE ULTIMATE SOUTH LUANGWA WALKING SAFARI

The Ultimate South Luangwa Walking Safari

Zambia is the home of walking safaris. As soon as you are on foot in the bush you become a part of it. You can hear, smell and feel the bush as well as see it. The Luangwa Valley has long been regarded as one of Africa's finest wildlife reserves. Its unspoilt natural beauty and abundant game make it an ideal destination for an African safari holiday. This is the Ultimate South Luangwa walking safari experience.

days 1-2

Kapane Lodge

You will be met at Lusaka Airport and escorted onto your domestic flight to Mfuwe. Your safari guide will meet you at Mfuwe Airport and drive you to Kapani Lodge (2 nights) in time to settle in before brunch.

You will have the rest of the day to relax, until your game drive this evening, which will continue after dark. It is during these early evening hours that the cats, including lion and leopard, are most active.

days 3-4

Luwe Bush Camp

You will be driven deep into the National Park to Luwi Bush Camp, a wonderfully rustic camp set in the shade of large trees close to a permanent lagoon.

This afternoon your guide will introduce you to the armed escort scout who will accompany you on your first real walking safari, taking time to point out the tracks and signs that he uses to interpret the bush that you are walking through. This first excursion will be a taster for what is to come. This is no nature trail, this is the real thing, you are tracking big game through the African bush, on foot!

days 5-6

Nsolo Bush Camp

On the second morning at Luwi you will head out from camp as you did on the previous day but this time your guide will walk you down the Luwi river course.

Your destination is Nsolo, the second of your bush camps. After a few hours gentle walking you will wander into the new camp.

A cool drink will be ready for you, brunch will be on the table and your bags will be in your room, your home for the next two nights.

days 7-8

Kakuli Camp

Your next move takes you further down the Luwi River, again on foot, to its confluence with the main Luangwa and to Kakuli Camp, along a stretch of the Luangwa that is home to over five hundred Hippo. Most of the game viewing is still on foot although there are more roads in this area so it is possible to use vehicles and with a dense population of leopards in the area the night drives are usually very rewarding

days 9-10

Luxury At Mchenja

Finally a taste of luxury awaits you at Mchenja, the last of your camps. The game in this area of the Park is abundant, so if there is anything that you have yet to see, the chances are you will find it here.
