Zambia Safari Solo Trip

Inspirational safari to Zambia

For the nature-loving solo traveller, this trip is 7 nights in one of the last untouched and remote wilderness areas on our planet, the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, also the birthplace of the walking safari. 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 camps offer a 'rustic luxury' feel for the adventurous, wildlife enthusiast. They are small and laid-back, perfect for the solo traveller. The walking 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.
