Nile Monitor Safari: In full
This great-value safari spends six nights focusing on wildlife activities, staying in one camp that offers walks and drives and another that is walking only – both of which are economically priced and very good camps in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park; your final night is spent in a small, comfortable lodge on the outskirts of Lusaka.
Starting from London Heathrow, your scheduled British Airways
overnight flight will take you directly to Lusaka
, the capital of Zambia.
3 nights at Kafunta River Lodge (full board & activities) | South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
Arriving in Lusaka in the morning, you connect with a 60-minute flight to Mfuwe Airport, on the outskirts of South Luangwa National Park
. There you meet your safari guide who will transfer you from the small settlement around Mfuwe to your safari camp overlooking a wide floodplain and the Luangwa River beyond. Although you’ll stay just outside the national park, there are no fences and wildlife, such as elephants, often wander through the camp. You’ll enjoy morning and afternoon/night drives as well as guided walking safaris during your 3 night
stay at Kafunta River Lodge.
3 nights at Island Bush Camp () | South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
After breakfast, you will transfer south to their sister camp, Island Bush Camp, which is situated in a very remote area south of the Luangwa River. The focus here is on walking safaris; you will walk with an armed scout and guide. Generally the pace is slow and meandering, designed to take in the sights and sounds, rather than cover huge amounts of ground. There is also a vehicle to explore a wider variety of areas and for night drives back to camp. You’ll enjoy morning and afternoon guided walking safaris and night drives as well, during your 3 night
stay at Island Bush Camp.
1 night at Pioneer Camp () | Lusaka area, Zambia
In the morning you will be driven by your guide to Mfuwe Airport for a flight to Lusaka. There you'll be met and driven to Pioneer Camp, a rustic little camp on the fringes of Lusaka. This is a simple but good place for an overnight stop, within easy reach of to Lusaka Airport. It stands amongst miombo woodlands – so you’ll spend your last night in Zambia in a ‘bush’ location.
Getting up very early in the morning, you will be driven to Lusaka Airport in time to connect with your direct morning flight with British Airways
back to London’s Heathrow. The flight arrives in London in the late afternoon, and you’ll look back on a memorable safari to Zambia.
