South Luangwa Safari begins mid-morning as you are collected in Chipata
and transferred to our beautiful campsite located within the surrounds
of Wildlife Camp. Game viewing begins an hour before reaching camp as
we drive through the heart of Lupande Game Management Area, so eyes
peeled! After a quick briefing and a short while to settle into the
camp, you'll have a lazy lunch before heading off on the first game
drive. You leave camp as soon as everybody is ready to get ahead of the
16:00 rush, allowing for both an afternoon and night drive rolled into
one. The early departure gives a head start on the other lodges and
means you can enjoy sundowners at one of the beautiful oxbow lagoons in
an area that few other vehicles reach on their drives. Driving through
the park after dark offers excellent chances of seeing leopard, lion,
honey badgers and all the other nocturnal surprises this amazing park
is waiting to reveal. You'll arrive back at camp between 20:00 and
20:30 for a delicious home cooked dinner.
an early wake up call in preparation for the morning drive. Enjoy a
light breakfast, served with coffee or tea before setting off for the
second foray into the National Park. During the drive there are
excellent chances of sighting elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo and
zebra. You return to camp at around 11:00 in time for a welcome brunch.
The early afternoon is yours to enjoy at your leisure; perhaps you
fancy a snooze, a swim in the Wildlife Camp pool, or just the
opportunity to swap stories and photographs at the bar. In the cool of
the early afternoon we’ll eat lunch and then it’s off for the second
afternoon and night drive of the safari. After an exciting evening
tracing all those elusive nocturnal creatures, it’s
back to camp for dinner at around 20:30.
no time for cooling our heels on the last morning! After a light
breakfast we head out for the second morning drive. This is our last
chance to enjoy the park, hopefully spotting any of the species that
are still not checked off the list, but more importantly absorbing the
breathtaking beauty and tranquillity that is so unique to the African
bush. Back at camp we’ll have a satisfying brunch at about 11:00 and
prepare for the transfer back to Chipata. There will be a little spare
time to take some last minute photos and maybe enjoy a cool drink at
the bar before you head off.
