Your South Luangwa Safari begins mid-morning as you are collected in Chipata and transferred to our beautiful campsite located within South Luangwa National Park. Game viewing begins before reaching camp as we drive through the heart of Lupande Game Management Area, so eyes peeled!
After a quick briefing and time to settle into the camp, you’ll have a lazy lunch before heading off on your first afternoon/evening game drive. We enjoy sundowners at one of the beautiful oxbow lagoons in the park before embarking on our night drive. Driving 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 at around 20:00 for a delicious home cooked dinner.
It’s an early wake up call on day 2 for your first morning drive. We enjoy a light breakfast, with coffee or tea before setting off. During the drive there are excellent chances of sighting elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo and zebra. You return to camp at around 10:30 in time for a welcome brunch.
The early afternoon is yours to enjoy at your leisure; perhaps you fancy a snooze, some quiet time reading, or the opportunity to swap stories and photographs under the dining tree with new-found friends. In the cool of the early afternoon it is time to leave camp on foot to explore the beautiful bush along the edges of the Mushilashi River. On the way your guide will explain the art of tracking, all the while keeping eyes and ears open for the animals which frequent the area. You arrive back at the bush camp in time for sundowners followed by a delicious dinner cooked over an open fire. The evening is spent telling stories and stargazing, before you are lulled to sleep by the sounds of the African bush.
After breakfast at camp our second walking safari begins, this time in the cool of the early morning. 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 11:00 and prepare for the transfer back to Chipata. There will be a little spare time to take some last minute photos and enjoy a cool drink before you head off.
