8 day South Luangwa Walking Mobile Safari
From USD 5 340 pp sharing
Lusaka – Lusaka (Guided Walking Mobile & Fly-in)
Departures: 2 July – 22 September

Itinerary Summary:
Day 1 - 8: South Luangwa National Park

These walking safaris have long been known as the best wilderness experience in the South Luangwa! The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last remaining unspoilt wilderness areas and possible the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa! It covers an area of over 9000 sq. km. Through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The ox bow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game – including buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and over 400 species of birds.

These three camps offer a unique combination of creature comforts and stunning remote locations in the South Luangwa National Park. However, some guests want to get even further out into the wilderness to immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and smells of the bush. For these adventurers, we offer dedicated walking safaris. Walking through the bush is a completely different experience to driving. All your senses are alert. Every sound, every movement – the flat of a bird’s wing, a tail swishing through the grass, tracks on the ground – acquires significance. This is where an expert guide really comes into his own. Not only will he (or she!) point out the wildlife and birdlife to you, he will also teach you to hone and sharpen your senses and to spot the clues that lie all around you in the bush. As one guest said after walking for five days along the Mupamdazi River, it is like reading an engrossing book, compared to watching a film. This is the only way to really discover the secrets of the bush. All walks are led by an experienced naturalist and accompanied by an armed game scout. You will need a moderate level of fitness, as about 10 km can be walked in 4 hours on varied ground.
