South Luangwa Exclusive Safari

Inspirational safari holiday to Zambia

A true nature lover's paradise, Zambia's South Luangwa will pull at the heart strings of even the most seasoned safari goer. Bush camps, what Zambia is famous for, are intimate and very private camps designed to give you a real, return-to-the wild experience. In this itinerary you will journey between 3 bush camps experiencing contrasting areas of the park.

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. Split your time between Chamilandu Camp, Kapamba Camp and Bilimungwe Camp each offering different visas and surrounding habitats, but all 3 packed with wildlife. When not on walking safaris and game drives, while away an afternoon in one of the wildlife hides or fall asleep in a hammock to the soundtrack of bathing elephant.
