    Tailor made tour

The deep Luangwa valley, east of Zambia, is a highlight for nature conservation in Africa, boasting no less than four large national parks!

We invite you to discover the South Luangwa National Park, which impresses with its great diversity of habitats and the numerous species associated with them. Norman Carr pioneered the first walking safaris in this region in the 1950s (those days, they used to sleep out in the open!). Nowadays, the Luangwa is still the best place in Africa to walk in harmony with nature. As the dry season approaches, the Luangwa River (which is so high during the rainy season that the reserve becomes inaccessible by road) dries slowly until only few oxbows remain. In September/October, conditions are tough for animals but at their best for the traveller who seeks top game watching. Waterholes concentrate biodiversity and it becomes almost common to see lion or leopard hunts! Based in exclusive and luxurious camps deep in the park, you discover this pristine territory on foot or in 4x4 where nature remains quasi-untouched.

Day by day...

Days 1-2: Kaingo Camp...

A transfer by light aircraft from Lusaka to Mfuwe is followed by a 4x4 to reach the South Luangwa National Park. The first two nights are spent in Kaingo Camp, located at the confluence between the Luangwa and Mwamba rivers. The four thatched chalets (each accommodating two people) are equipped with en-suite facilities. Activities during the two days include walking safaris (accompanied by a guide) and 4x4 safaris (night and day).

Days 3-5: Mwamba Camp...

Today you have a wonderful opportunity to reach our next stop, Mwamba Camp, by foot. This is a three-hour walk through the bush – but if you’d rather take it easy, you can also travel by 4x4. Activities during our stay at Mwamba include walking safaris with a professional tracker as well as night and day 4x4 safaris.
