Full itinerary

 

Day 1

Your 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.

Day 2

It's 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.

Day 3

There's 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.
