H campfire under the stars

Time + Tide Signature Sleepout

Discover Time + Tide Signature Sleepout

Perhaps the ultimate way to get in touch with the South Luangwa and experience the wilds of Africa as early pioneers once did: the stars are your ceiling as you sleep out in the dry Luwi river bed without a tent. Equipped with only a mosquito net and a bed roll, get closer to nature than ever before with a safari that feels fresh and unique.

Undoubtedly one of Africa's ultimate wilderness experiences, this is an outstanding overnight safari tailored to those seeking a true adventure. The expedition is led by one of Time + Tide's best guide and scout teams, often possessing a joint 30 years experience in exploring the wilderness. Designed for a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 8 guests - take on the South Luangwa alone or with friends. Set out on foot and find a place to camp for the night before making a camp fire, cooking some dinner and listening to the riveting stories of the guide and scout. It's an experience utterly unforgettable.

"The ideal is to walk, rather than drive, to the sleepout along the Luwi River reaching the fly camp for the night. A true South Luangwa experience."
