Essence of the South Luangwa Safari

The Essence of the South Luangwa Safari is the quintessential South Luangwa Bush Camp experience. The itinerary take in three of our favourite bush camps which are all located on the Luwi River which meanders through some of the most remote regions of the South Luangwa National Park. With a range of activities from walking safaris for which the area is famous for to more traditional vehicle based game drives and a night fly camping under the stars, this itinerary reflects the essence of safari in the South Luangwa. This is one of our personal favourites due to traditional feel and personal experiences of the camps, the exceptional guiding, the range of activities and the fantastic game viewing on offer.
