This safari focuses on two superb owner-run camps in South Luangwa; with 4 nights at Kaingo and 3 nights at its sister camp Mwamba, you have a full week on safari here and keen photographers will love the camps nearby hides which guests can use at any time of the day in the hope of close encounters with wildlife – we especially love the hippo hide that sits almost at water level right by a hippo pool.
These camps are only open during the dry season from the 26 May to the end of October.
Your safari with us starts in Lusaka where you'll transfer to a 60-minute flight to Mfuwe Airport – the gateway to South Luangwa National Park. Meeting your guide, there's a short drive to the park gates and then a game drive lasting about 90 minutes (or more, depending on what you see) to your base for 4 nights which has a lovely location overlooking the Luangwa River.
After exploring around the Luangwa River area, head a little deeper into the park to the small and rustic Mwamba Camp. You can drive to this camp, but many choose to walk instead which gives you a great sense of expedition. Once here you can walk and do day and night drives too. Though during the middle of the day its great to sit in a nearby hide and watch as animals come down to drink.
Today you might enjoy a leisurely breakfast, or a safari activity before you transfer by 4WD back to Mfuwe Airport for the short flight back to Lusaka. Timings will depend on your onward plans and connections.
