Secrets of South Luangwa

This 6-night walking and 4x4 safari offers a comprehensive overview of Zambia's most famous wilderness region, the Luangwa Valley.

Secrets of South Luangwa

Zambia’s most famous wilderness park, the South Luangwa Valley, is also one of Africa’s greatest wildlife sanctuaries, famed for its pristine scenery and prodigious game. This 7-day safari itinerary will allow you to experience the best that the Luangwa has to offer, with an emphasis on traditional, low-impact walking safari activities.

Outline Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Lusaka - South Luangwa

    Arrive into Lusaka this morning and connect with the flight to Mfuwe, where you will be met by your driver and transferred to Nsolo Camp (two nights, full board).

  2. Day 2: South Luangwa Valley

    From its prime position in the South Luangwa Valley, Nsolo offers a fabulous safari experience. (And often, you needn’t even leave camp to experience it - lots of game, big and small, can be seen at the waterhole in front of the camp throughout the day, allowing for exciting game viewing from the comfort of your own deck!)

  3. Day 3: Luwi Bush Camp

    After an early breakfast, depart Nsolo Camp for its sister property, Luwi Bush Camp (three nights, full board). You can make the journey by vehicle or, if you’re feeling adventurous, on foot accompanied by your walking guide (your luggage is taken separately.)

  4. Day 4: Game viewing activities

    As at Nsolo Camp, game-viewing activities at Luwi Bush Camp focus primarily on walking safaris, though limited game drives are also possible. Its remote location makes Luwi Bush Camp one of the most enthralling camps in all of Zambia. The wildlife in the area is prolific and to track it each day on foot is a memory that will last a lifetime.

  5. Day 5: Mchenja Bush Camp

    Depart Nsolo after breakfast and transfer by 4x4 to Mchenja Bush Camp (two nights, full board).

  6. Day 6: Game viewing activities

    Enjoy a full day of game-viewing in and around Mchenja.

  7. Day 7: Departure

    After a morning safari activity and breakfast at the camp, transfer to Mfuwe Airport for your flight to Lusaka, where you can connect with your international flight home/onward transfer.
