This innovative trip completes a 10-night walking trail in Zambia's South Luangwa, using two small, high-quality owner-run operations; you'll walk between most of these camps and follow part of the route that David Livingstone took when he journeyed through the area. It's a great walking safari proceeding camp-to-camp through an area with first-class wildlife, seen with the help of some of the Luangwa Valley's top safari guides.
Arriving in Lusaka with your own arrangements, you connect to onto a 60-minute flight to Mfuwe Airport, beside South Luangwa National Park. There you'll be met and driven about two hours to the top small camp of Tafika.
After a day of walks and drives from Tafika, you'll cross the Luangwa River into the walking-only area run by Remote Africa Safaris where there are no roads or vehicles here. Your luggage will be carried for you, and you'll then walk for 3 hours or so to reach Chikoko Bush Camp. Here you'll stay of 2 nights to enjoy top walking safaris in this the area with an expert guide.
This morning you'll walk with your guide to Chikoko's sister-camp (as always, your luggage is carried separately), which will be your home for the next 2 nights. Your days here are for concentrated, undisturbed walking safaris, in the company of an expert guide; your base is Crocodile Camp.
Today you'll walk to another small bushcamp that's run by another of the Luangwa's top, small safari operators: Shenton Safaris. Here you'll base yourself for another 2 nights, to enjoy a choice of walking and driving safaris from Mwamba Bushcamp.
You have the choice of driving or walking to Mwamba's parent-camp, Kaingo. It stands in one of the Luangwa's best areas for the rare, endemic antelope – the Cookson's Wildebeest. You will be based here for 2 nights to explore on walks and 4x4 drives with expert guides. Kaingo also has several game hides – one in a tree, one on a boat, one in the river bank; these are especially good for photographers, and patient watchers can to get really close views of the game.
After an early breakfast you will be driven across the park for a couple of hours back to Mfuwe Airport, to catch your 60 minute flight back to Lusaka.
