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