This exclusive safari itinerary promises no more than 8 guests at each camp, thus ensuring a pretty unique game viewing experience. The Luangwa Valley covers most of the Eastern region of Zambia and divided into North and South. This itinerary concentrates on the South Luangwa, and is definitely one for the intrepid traveller. Home of the Walking Safari and ideal for safari enthusiasts keen to explore the wilds of Africa; with the largest concentration of hippo in the world, you are guaranteed some action! We can promise huge herds of elephant and this is an outstanding location for big cats, in particular leopard. Frequently voted one of the best lodges in your Africa, your inspirational journey will begin at Mfuwe Lodge, which is famed for having elephants regularly wander through the main lobby in search of fruits from a nearby mango tree.
After relaxing at Mfuwe Lodge your journey really begins. You will spend time at Chamilandu Camp which promises the most spectacular views in Africa, right across the Luangwa River. With just three stilted chalets at this exclusive camp, you will feel totally at one in the bush. Due to its prime river front location, the wildlife and birding are simply sensational, and you don't even need to leave your room for the best views! Continue onwards to Kapamba Camp in a remote corner of the South Luangwa Valley, for a little luxury and super game viewing. Kapamba is surrounded by some of the richest wildlife in the park and due to its unique location is one of the only parks open from April through January each year, making this an incredible year round itinerary. Your journey will end at the affectionately known Bili Camp, where guests are regularly seduced by the unique charms of this elegant camp. With three waterholes nearby, you don't need to work too hard to see game here, and a sundowner on the deck overlooking the Luangwa River sounds pretty hard to beat!
