Zambia is known as the ultimate safari destination. In a week here you will experience a fantastic wildlife in South Luangwa, one of Africa's finest national parks. You join in - on foot - on experiences in the African wilderness. We promise you will have memories for life!
DAY 1: ARRIVAL ZAMBIA
You land in Lusaka and fly on to Mfuwe. The Travel's first destination is Luwi, a small bush camp located in the heart of South Luangwa National Park.
DAY 2: LUWI
The camp has four cabins located at the Luwi Sand River in the shadow of large mahogany trees. Every year when the water is low, the camp is built up and taken down again when the water stock increases (open for visits May-October). The camp is the only one in miles around. Close to the camp is a lagoon full of hippos, and afternoon safaris often end with sundowners here. The camp's location is great for exploring the bush on foot: The area is renowned for its large lion population and looking for lions on foot is an experience you will never forget!
DAY 3: LUWI
You travel with Norman Carr Safari (today known as Time + Tide) who is known to be the first to organize goose safaris in Africa. You sleep well in the straw cabins after a day's march in the bush. In the middle of the night you may wake up as far as the lions fight with a leopard over the prey. The next morning, the guide says, "Let's go find out what happened last night!" The lion, leopard, hyena and crocodile tracks are fresh and close to the camp!
DAY 4 AND XNUM: NSOLO BUSHCAMP AND SAFARI
After morning activity and breakfast, head to the next safari camp in South Luangwa. You can choose whether you want to go or be driven and the journey itself is a great safari experience. If you choose to go, baggage awaits you when you arrive. Nsolo Bush Camp has a great mix of "natural" luxury; spacious cabins that stand on wooden piles with grass and straw walls and large outdoor bathrooms. Each cottage has great views of the bush and water holes at the Luwi River.
At Nsolo Bushcamp you can combine safaris by car and on foot. This area is known for its lion population and the possibilities are also good for seeing the wild dogs.
DAY 6 AND NUMBER: COULD BUSHCAMP
After breakfast and breakfast, head to Kakuli Camp, a real bushcamp nestled on the banks of the Luangwa River. Here you live in a safari tent with an en-suite bathroom. From the camp's main deck you can enjoy the view of the river and incredible wildlife; Here we find Africa's largest population of crocodiles and hippos. The view here is phenomenal.
Also this area is known for offering some of the best safari opportunities in Zambia, and the camp offers safari in land robbery and on foot. It is up to you what you want to do every single day. In the evenings, night safari is recommended where you have good opportunities to see Luangwa's predators that are active only the few hours it is dark.
DAY 8: DEPARTURE
After breakfast, head back to the airport. The journey there is a combination of safari on foot and by car, and you have the opportunity to see animals right up until you leave.
