Duiker Safari

Duiker Safari: In full

This excellent Zambia safari holiday spends 10 nights between two of the country’s best safari parks – South Luangwa National Park and the Lower Zambezi National Park – where you concentrate on walking, driving and boating safaris. This trip offers a very good overview of some of the camps in these two parks.

This safari is really designed for Zambia's dry season, from around June to October. Outside of this time, these camps are closed, and this safari is not possible.

Kakuli Bushcamp, in the South Luangwa NP, is small with just five tents.In Lusaka, you'll hop onto a flight to Mfuwe (about 70 minutes) located near the South Luangwa National Park.
