Scrub hare safari: In full
This remote walking safari is a great value trip for safari enthusiasts which spends six nights in the top-class camps run by Remote Africa Safaris in South Luangwa National Park – including 4 nights in a remote walking-only area of the park – before returning to a comfortable lodge just outside Lusaka to relax before the British Airways return flight to London Heathrow.
The two bushcamps in this trip, Chikoko and Crocodile, only open from June to October, when Zambia's weather is generally fine and dry.
Starting from London Heathrow, your scheduled British Airways
overnight flight will take you directly to Lusaka.
