Classic Luangwa

From US$3965 per person sharing

Discover Zambia’s iconic South Luangwa National Park in this 7 Night safari , relax at Mfuwe Lodge before venturing deep into the bush and exploring on foot from three of their remote and intimate bushcamps. You will be guaranteed an unrivalled wildlife experience in one of the last unspoilt wilderness regions of Africa – the very place where the African walking safari was pioneered.

The South Luangwa is the home of the walking safari – this is where it was first pioneered by Norman Carr back in the 1960s.  To stride out on your own two feet is the only way to understand the bush, and it’s the best zoology lesson you’ll ever have.

Day 1 to 2 - Mfuwe Lodge, South Luangwa National Park

Upon arrival at Mfuwe Airport, you will be met and driven to camp where you will have time to settle in.  Ease yourself into Luangwa life with a 1- night stay at the award winning Mfuwe Lodge. Set beneath a canopy of ebony and mahogany, its thatched buildings are arranged around the banks of two lagoons where an endless stream of wildlife will keep you enthralled as you lounge on the open deck or take a dip in the swimming pool. 

Secluded covered verandas look out over wallowing hippo and thirsty game in the lagoons, while the newly refurbished African interiors are the perfect place to wind down with their comfortable sitting rooms and en-suite bathrooms with panoramic walk-in showers.

Day 2 to 4 - Bilimingwe Bush Camp,  South Luangwa National Park

Head off from Mfuwe Lodge on a three to four hour game drive down to Bilimungwe Bushcamp - home for the next 2 nights. 

The heart of camp is the lounge,  built around a termite mound and set beneath a huge winterthorn tree it looks out over a shady waterhole – an establishment favoured by local warthogs, elephant, and other thirsty game throughout the day. Both walking safaris and game drives around Bilimungwe explore the impressive range of habitats in the area and when it comes to wildlife-watching from Bilimungwe, it’s hard to know where to look first - put simply, this is a nature-lover’s paradise

Day 4 to 6 - Kapamba Bushcamp, South Luangwa National Park

After breakfast you will head off at a leisurly pace towards Kapamba Bushcamp, situated in a remote corner of the South Luangwa National Park. You will spend the next 2 nights at Kapamba.

This Luxury bushcamp is set on the banks of a spring-fed river. Wildlife is all around and that camp is built to maximise the views! 

Day 6 to 8 - Zungulila Bushcamp,  South Luangwa National Park

This morning you will leave Kapamba Bushcamp for a stroll or drive along the river in time for lunch at your next camp Zungulila, where you will spend the next 2 nights. 

Zungulila is a charming camp that embodies the essence of old Africa and a bygone era, with breathtaking views onto a bend in the River and an expansive plain where natural springs attract a variety of game. Built under thatch roofs, each of the four shaded tents has its own private bamboo veranda with immense views over an impressive variety of wildlife. With stylish interiors, ensuite bathrooms, outdoor showers and sunken plunge-pool you can enjoy your creatures and your creature comforts in this classic tented bushcamp.

Day 8 - Return to Mfuwe Airport

Today you leave Zungulila, and the Bushcamps, on a three- to four-hour game drive to return to Mfuwe Lodge for your transfer to Mfuwe Airport.
