Giraffe safari

Giraffe safari: In full

This classic safari spends 9 nights deep in the bush, split between the national parks of North Luangwa and South Luangwa – mainly concentrating on walking safaris using excellent small, safari camps run by Remote Africa Safaris; it's a superb trip for experienced safari-goers who will appreciate how remote and untamed this area of the Luangwa Valley really is.

Note that two of these camps, Chikoko and Mwaleshi, only open from June to October, when Zambia's weather is generally fine and dry. This safari is not possible during the rest of the year.
