Boehm's Zebra Safari

This safari combines two high-quality owner-run camps in a very productive region of the South Luangwa. The guiding is excellent and with its hides this safari is perfect for serious photographers.

Boehm's Zebra Safari: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the Boehm's Zebra Safari. Everything we do is completely tailor-made so while this is an idea which works well, we’ll always design an itinerary just for you.


Day 1

Starts: Lusaka International Airport

Day 1

Lusaka to South Luangwa by air & 4WD

From Lusaka Airport, it’s a 70-minute flight to Mfuwe in the Luangwa Valley, where you’ll meet your guide for the 4WD trip of some 2½ hours to Kaingo. Leaving Mfuwe behind, you'll cross the river into the national park, then it's a fascinating game drive to the small riverside camp.

Kaingo Camp
Days 1-5

Kaingo Camp

4 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesSouth Luangwa National Park, Zambia

The well-established Kaingo Camp overlooks the Luangwa River from beneath an old grove of ebony trees. Owned by Derek Shenton and his family, it's one of the few independent camps remaining in South Luangwa National Park. Derek, and his engaging wife Jules, live in Lusaka and are very involved in running the camp, visiting frequently and sometimes helping out with the guiding.

"Their staff are one of their greatest assets."

If there is a 'cookie-cutter template' for a safari camp, Derek and Jules have always ignored it; Kaingo operates with a style of its own – which we find a refreshing change. It's a welcoming camp, very informal and with a very relaxed feel. We've found the service to be personal, the guides engaging and knowledgeable, and the game activities well organised and productive. We love having three activities a day, and the enthusiasm that goes into these, and the hides add an extra dimension to a safari here, especially for keen photographers.

Day 5

Walking or game drive between Kaingo & Mwamba

It's only about 7km between Kaingo and Mwamba, and while you can easily be driven this short distance, we'd recommend that you cover it as part of a gentle 3–4-hour walking safari. The route takes you almost due north, away from the Luangwa River, stopping en route for snacks and drinks.

Mwamba Bushcamp
Days 5-8

Mwamba Bushcamp

3 nights
Full Board & ActivitiesSouth Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Mwamba Bushcamp is set beneath the shade of tall ebony trees, overlooking a waterhole in the usually dry bed of the seasonal Mwamba River. Owned by Derek and Jules Shenton, it is a very natural yet comfortable camp: small, intimate and very remote.

"Abundant wildlife. Excellent location. Excellent guides."

We've visited Mwamba often since about 1995, most recently in September 2017. We've found that the remote area and simple design of the camp give it a true bushcamp feel, but the spacious rooms, large beds and excellent en-suite bathrooms add a surprising level of comfort that complements the experience nicely. The food was great – and we loved the flexibility of the activities (especially the hides!) and the obvious passion of the guides. See our full report on Mwamba Bushcamp

Tribal Textiles Tour

Tribal Textiles Tour

One - two hours

Visit the Tribal Textiles workshop, where hand-painted textiles are produced by more than a hundred local people. The workshop is close to Mfuwe Airport, so is ideally placed for a stop en route to/from the South Luangwa. With products ranging from cushion covers to bags and T-shirts, it's a great place for souvenir shopping while at the same time supporting the local community.

Kawaza Village Visit

Kawaza Village Visit

Two to three hours

Just outside Zambia's South Luangwa National Park lies a normal, working rural African village which is open and welcoming to visitors to the Luangwa valley. There is nothing artificial or contrived about Kawaza Village, and it offers a rare opportunity to experience and appreciate Kunda culture, and meet local Zambians.
