This 8-day South and North Luangwa safari explores the untamed South and North Luangwa National Parks to enjoy Zambia game viewing at its best. South Luangwa National Park is also known as “Valley of the Leopard” as the chances of spotting this animal are very high. The North is a remote wilderness explored on foot during morning and afternoon walking safaris. There has been very little development in North Luangwa National Park which means that the wildlife viewing while on a Luangwa safari will far surpass anything you’ve experienced before.
Highlights of the Safari
Tafika Camp, South Luangwa National Park
Tafika, an intimate camp located on the east bank of the Luangwa River, offers the visitor exceptional and exclusive game viewing because of its remote location. The Nsefu sector of the South Luangwa National Park, in which the park is located, is known as The Valley of the Leopard because of the high number of leopards found here. Not only is there a good chance of seeing leopard during your stay but you’ll also have the opportunity to see serval, crowned cranes, lion, wild dog, elephant, giraffe, puku, hippo and crocodiles. Enjoy dinners in true safari style, by candlelight with the bush coming alive around you.
Mwaleshi Camp, North Luangwa National Park
Mwaleshi Camp is situated on a bend of the Mwaleshi River, within the rhino sanctuary. With their environmental footprint in mind, the four thatched chalets are rebuilt every year from natural materials and offer uninterrupted views of the Mwaleshi River. Game viewing is an exclusive affair, mostly on foot, using existing animal paths and thereby reducing our impact on the area. Led by an experienced guide and an armed National Park scout, guests will have a chance to see the Big 5 as well as wild dog, kudu and Cookson’s wildebeest on foot. A walking safari is an opportunity to appreciate the many gifts of the bush with all your senses. Located just upstream from the camp is the beautiful Mwaleshi Falls which guests will have the opportunity to explore.
