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.
In Lusaka, you'll hop onto a flight to Mfuwe (about 70 minutes) located near the South Luangwa National Park. There you'll be met by Norman Carr Safaris and driven through the park to your camp. Kakuli stands on the confluence of the Luwi and Luangwa Rivers, and activities focus on a flexible mixture of night and day game drives, and walking safaris.
After your morning game drive, and a substantial brunch, you will be driven a few hours north in the park. You will then spend the next 3 nights in the stylish Mchenja which sits in a grove of ebony trees on the banks of the Luangwa River. This has to be one of the most picturesque locations in the park, and the camp offers fantastic walking safaris as well as game drives.
On your last morning you'll be taken by road through the park and then through local villages to Mfuwe Airport. Here you will board your flight to Lusaka, where you will connect onto a flight to the Lower Zambezi. On arrival you will be met and transferred to your next lodge, along the banks of the Zambezi River, for a 1 night stay at Kasaka River Lodge.
Today you will be taken down the Zambezi River by canoe, to your next camp in time for lunch, where you will stay 2 nights at Chongwe River Camp. Activities here range from day and night game drives, walking safaris as well as boat and canoe trips on the river.
After an early breakfast, you transfer by 4WD to the Lower Zambezi airstrip for your quick light aircraft flight back to Lusaka Airport for your onward arrangements.
