At Jackalberry Safaris, we're all about ease, comfort and unforgettable experiences. From beginning to end, we want to make your safari as stress-free as possible, so we are unique in offering transfers to and from Chipata. Our transfers between Chipata and Mfuwe usually take between 3-4 hours in an air-conditioned minibus. Of course, if you do choose to save some time by flying in, we will be happy to collect you from Mfuwe airport at the beginning of your safari.
All safaris depart from Dean's Hill View Lodge in Chipata. Dean's is clean, comfortable and well priced, but not very big, so it's a good idea to book your accommodation prior to arrival. If you decide to stay elsewhere, such as Mama Rula's, we recommend that you book a morning taxi to Dean's the night before. Departure times may vary depending on the time of year and condition of the roads, but we'll inform you of the pickup schedule when you make your booking. Arrival time in Chipata at the end of your tour may also vary, particularly as road conditions change during the season. Again, we'll give you a better idea of journey times when you book so that you can arrange your onward travel.
