This trip to Zambia concentrates on the South Luangwa in the dry season, staying for 9 nights in camps run by The Bushcamp Company - focusing on the walking safaris in a superb walking area to the south of the park. Your route starts in the centre of the park and meanders slowly southwards from dense bush to open grassland near the Luangwa River.
Arriving in Lusaka under your own arrangements, you connect to onto a 60-minute flight to Mfuwe Airport, beside South Luangwa National Park. Here you meet a safari guide who drives you for your first night to a luxurious lodge in the heart of the Luangwa Valley - Mfuwe Lodge.
After breakfast you are driven for a few hours through the park to your first bushcamp. Activities for the rest of this trip will be divided between walking safaris in small groups with an armed guide, and game drives. You begin by staying for 2 nights at Chindeni or Chamilandu.
After a morning's walk exploring the area, you will return to camp for a delicious brunch. You will then be transferred through thick riverine forest to your next camp. Afternoon tea is followed by a walk and night drive. Spend 3 nights at Zungulila or Kapamba Bushcamp.
Having spent a few days walking or driving in the areas of the camp, you will enjoy one final walk in this pristine area before a final brunch at camp. After brunch you will continue your journey now heading to a superb little camp overlooking a waterhole. Here you will stay for 3 nights at Kuyenda or Bilimungwe Bushcamp.
After an early morning breakfast, drive northeast through the national park, across the Luangwa River to Mfuwe Airport, for your 60-minute flight back to Lusaka.
