Kaingo also has several game hides – one in a tree, one on a boat, one in the river bank; these are especially good for photographers, and patient watchers can to get really close views of the game.
1 night at Pioneer Camp (half board) | Lusaka area, Zambia
You'll normally have time for a final walk or game drive before being driven across the park for a couple of hours back to Mfuwe Airport, to catch a short flight back to Lusaka. At Lusaka, you'll be collected and transferred for 1 night to Pioneer Camp.
Rising early, you'll be transferred early in the morning to the airport to connect to your direct flight back to London Heathrow with British Airways
