Nile Monitor Safari

Nile Monitor Safari: In full

This great-value safari spends six nights focusing on wildlife activities, staying in one camp that offers walks and drives and another which focuses on walking activities – both of which are economically priced and very good camps in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park.


Days 1-3

3 nights at Kafunta River Lodge (full board & activities) | South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Kafunta River Lodge overlooks the Luangwa River beyond a floodplain.Arriving in Lusaka in the morning, you connect onto a 60-minute flight to Mfuwe Airport, on the outskirts of the South Luangwa National Park. There you meet your safari guide who will transfer you from the small settlement around Mfuwe to your safari camp, Kafunta River Lodge, which overlooks a wide floodplain and the Luangwa River beyond. 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 the lodge.

Days 4-6

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

Welcome to the remote walking-only Island Bush Camp!After breakfast, you will transfer down through the park to Kafunta's sister camp, Island Bush Camp, which is situated in a very remote area south of the Luangwa River. The focus here is on walking safaris; you will walk with an armed scout and guide. Generally the pace is slow and meandering, designed to take in the sights and sounds, rather than cover huge amounts of ground. There is also a vehicle to explore a wider variety of areas and for night drives back to camp. You’ll enjoy morning and afternoon guided walking safaris and night drives as well, during your 3 night stay here.

Day 7

You will be driven by your guide to Mfuwe Airport for a flight (typically 60 minutes) to Lusaka Airport where you will continue with your own onward arrangements.
