Zambia - Home of the Walking Safari

A Walk On The Wild Side
Guided 8 Days / 7 Nights

The South Luangwa National Park is one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The Luangwa River and lagoons have the most intense concentration of hippos and crocs in Africa. It is also one of the best parks in Africa to view leopard and has over 60 species of mammals and over 400 species of birds.
It is here where Norman Carr pioneered walking safaris in Zambia in the 1950’s. “To view the bush from a vehicle is simply to be an observer, but to get out on foot was to become a part of your surroundings”.

Interpretive walking safaris where you track big game, discover all creatures great and small and learn about the ecosystem of the bush are absorbing and thrilling. This safari allows you to move between three intimate, rustic, yet luxurious tented camps.

Your Journey

Days 1 - 2: Luwi

An authentic remote bush camp next to a large hippo filled lagoon and in an area famous for its lions (and the thrill of tracking them!) plus a family of rare wild dogs. Walks can be complemented by game drives and explorations upriver. The permanent water next to the camp attracts wildlife from far and wide.

Days 3 – 5: Nsolo

Walk to the historic camp of Nsolo (8 km). The dry river bed in front of the camp is used by the cats as a thoroughfare. Animals frequent a waterhole in front of the camp where often your most exciting game viewing is from the comfort of your own deck. Walks and game drives can be alternated.

Days 6 – 8: Kakuli

Walk camp to camp again. Kakuli lies on an elevated stretch of riverbank at the confluence of the Luwi and Luangwa Rivers overlooking a wide grazing lawn – perfect for game watching. At the end of your stay transfer by vehicle back to the airport.

Grade

Nature walks are conducted in single file led by an experience game ranger. Easy with some small hills. Longest day’s walking 4 hours. You have the choice to transfer by vehicle between camps.

Inclusions

All meals, refreshments, game-viewing excursions, transportation, laundry, transfers to and from local air strip/airport.
