Discover the Whole Luangwa Valley
With our 11 day Luangwa Valley Experience you discover the whole of the Luangwa Valley, Zambia. The safari is conducted on foot and in open 4 x 4 vehicles and takes you though some of the remotest areas in Africa, challenging road conditions and river crossings add to the adventure. During your morning and afternoon/night game drives you will discover the high game concentration of the Mfuwe area.
The Luangwa Valley Experience starts in Lusaka with a flight to Mfuwe where you will spend the first nights at Kafunta River Lodge.
From Kafunta River Lodge we travel three hours south to the remote Island Bush Camp. The camp is set on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking a huge pod of hippos. The days are spent exploring this area on foot, in the evening we enjoy a campfire meal by the Luangwa River.
We return to Mfuwe before we fly to North Luangwa, offering us the great opportunity to see this remote area and its natural beauty from the air. The North Luangwa National Park is known for its high population of predators, huge buffalo herds and endemic Cookson’s wildebeest. It is one of the wildest places on earth which you visit during your luangwa valley experience!
We will be staying at Mwaleshi Camp, set on the crystal clear Mwaleshi River in the heart of the park and this will be our base for the following days. The remote setting of this comfortable camp adds to the real wilderness atmosphere. We will discover the wilderness on foot. The return flight offers another opportunity to view the mighty Luangwa River from the air.
The final days are spent at Kafunta River Lodge discovering more of the South Luangwa National Park. The safari ends with a return flight to Lusaka.
