For the nature-loving solo traveller, this itinerary includes 7 nights in one of the last untouched and remote wilderness areas on our planet, the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. The family-run Robin Pope Safaris has been a leading operator in the South Luangwa for over 30 years. Their camps are offer a 'rustic luxury' feel for the adventurous, wildlife enthusiast. They are small and laid-back, perfect for the solo traveller. If you want to enjoy some 'me time' eating meals whilst gazing at the spectacular river views, there is certainly the space and the peace to do so, but there is also the option of sharing meals and campfire or sundowner drinks with the other guests at the camp too.
With no single supplement at any of the camps, this itinerary makes it affordable for the solo traveller to fully explore the South Luangwa, moving between 3 camps, Nkwali, Tena Tena and Nsefu. The birthplace of the walking safari, the South Luangwa guides are experts at allowing you to safely view your wildlife on foot. It is a once-in-a-lifetime thrill you will never forget. As well as the walking, there's your typical game drives in search of the abundant wildlife of the park, particularly known for its leopard sightings and huge pods of hippos in the river. If you are an avid photographer, you will be spoilt for choice, with the South Luangwa's landscape and unique lighting, and its astounding wildlife.
