7 day Shoebill Safari
From USD 4 250 pp sharing
Lusaka – Lusaka (Guided Mobile & Fly-in)
Departure: 6 May 2013

Itinerary Summary:
Day 1 - 2: South Luangwa National Park
Day 3 - 4: Kasanka National Park
Day 5 – 6: Bangweulu Swamps
Day 7: Lusaka

This is an exceptional safari combining South Luangwa National Park, Kasanka National Park and the Bangweulu Swamps. After 2 nights at Nkwali in the South Luangwa, the group flies to Kasanka – there are many bird species that will be new to the safari and the sitatunga will certainly be seen at the swamp. The safari will then continue onto Bangweulu Swamps, which remains one of Zambia’s special gems. It offers superb birding from all the water birds to the endangered wattled crane elegantly strolling around the plains. Of course the star attraction remains the extraordinary shoebill. At this time of the year it is virtually a sure sighting. The area also hosts the endemic black lechwe along with tsessebe and buffalo. The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possible the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It covers an area of over 9 000 square km’s through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The oxbow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game – including buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard, giraffe, hippo and over 450 species of birds. The Bangweulu wetlands, just north of Kasanka are one of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife secrets with over 100 000 black lechwe and the world’s most visitble population of shoebill storks. Kasanka is famed for having over 400 bird species, as well as both the sitatunga and tsessebe species of antelope.
