Vervet Monkey Safari: In full
This luxurious safari spends 8 nights in the fantastic South Luangwa National Park, split between three of the most stylish camps on offer; two of these are located on the banks of the Luangwa River and offer both walking and day-and-night 4WD safaris; the other is located in the very remote far north of the park and only offers walking safaris; it’s a superb trip for keen safari-goers who wish to explore the South Luangwa’s more remote areas whilst also staying in luxurious surroundings.
Starting from London Heathrow, your scheduled British Airways
overnight flight will take you directly to Lusaka.
2 nights at Puku Ridge (full board & activities) | South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
Arriving in Lusaka in the morning, you connect with a 60-minute flight to South Luangwa. On arrival, you’ll be met by your guide and open 4WD vehicle and will be taken on a drive through the park towards the stylish camp where you will spend your first 2 nights
. Spend your time here exploring the area south of Mfuwe where the game is prolific and the vehicles few.
3 nights at Mchenja Bushcamp (full board & activities) | South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
On your final morning at Puku Ridge enjoy a full breakfast in camp, before driving north through the park on a leisurely two or three hour game drive. Take your time to stop and look at any interesting wildlife you see along the way – before being greeted at Mchenja where you will spend the next 3 nights
. This camp offers walks and drives, usually with walks being taken in the morning and drives in the afternoon, culminating in a night drive back to camp for dinner. However activities are usually very flexible.
3 nights at Zebra Plains (full board & activities) | South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
Head further north still for your last safari experience in South Luangwa, and arguably the most remote! Your final camp offers only walking, so be prepared to leave your vehicle behind and explore this area on foot with expert guides. Walking safaris can really bring the bush to life, and even the smallest things can be fascinating – though there is nothing more exhilarating than tracking an elephant on foot! Spend 3 nights
at this lovely tented camp.
1 night at Eight Reedbuck Hotel (bed & breakfast) | Lusaka area, Zambia
On your final morning enjoy one last walk, before having brunch and being transferred back to Mfuwe Airport. Connect onto your 60-minute flight back to Lusaka where you will be met on arrival and transferred to a small and charming boutique hotel for the night.
Today is an early start, with a direct morning flight back to London Heathrow with British Airways
. You will arrive back into Heathrow in the late afternoon – after a superb safari to Zambia.
