Hyena Safari

Hyena Safari: In full

This great-value safari spends six nights focussing on wildlife activities whilst staying at two economically priced and very good camps in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park; start your safari in a friendly, personal camp in a great area for wildlife, before moving to the wilderness areas in the north of the park.


Days 1-3

3 nights at Flatdogs Camp (full board & activities) | South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Flatdogs Camp is situated just outside the gates of the South Luangwa National Park.From Lusaka you take a 60-minute flight to Mfuwe Airport, on the outskirts of South Luangwa National Park. There you meet your safari guide who will transfer you through the small settlement around Mfuwe to your safari camp beside the Luangwa River. Although you'll stay just outside the national park, there are no fences and wildlife, such as elephants, often wander through the camp. You'll enjoy morning and afternoon/night drives as well as guided walking safaris during your 3 night stay at Flatdogs Camp.

Days 4-6

3 nights at Lion Camp (full board & activities) | South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Lion camp is isolated in a game-rich area of the South Luangwa.After breakfast, Flatdogs will transfer you to the remote north of South Luangwa National Park to Lion Camp. Overlooking a small oxbow lagoon, and close to the appropriately named Lion Plain, Lion Camp offers wildlife viewing from both the camp itself, and from game drives and walks in a true wilderness area. The camp is more established than most in the area, and includes luxuries such as a long narrow swimming pool, a real rarity within the park itself, and a perfect spot to enjoy a cold sundowner.

Day 7

After a morning activity and an early brunch at Lion Camp you will be driven by your guide through the park to Mfuwe Airport (typically 2-3 hours), giving you a last chance for some wildlife viewing on the way. You can then catch the early- or late-afternoon flight back to Lusaka where you will continue on your own arrangements.
