Highlights of the 8-day South Luangwa Safari

Tafika Camp, South Luangwa National Park

The intimate Tafika Camp embodies the serenity that can be found in South Luangwa.

The unfussy design of the camp, built entirely by local villagers from natural materials bring guests close to the bush and its fascinating inhabitants. The camp is remote and therefore, unlike in other popular game parks, exclusive sightings are the norm. Located on the east bank of the Luangwa River, the camp offers exceptional game viewing. Without leaving the camp guests can observe game from the two hides that overlook the waterhole frequented by herds of elephant, bushbuck, puku, impala, mongoose and several bird species.

The Luangwa Valley and especially the Nsefu sector, in which Tafika Camp is located, is known as The Valley of the Leopard because of the high number of leopards found here. You’ll also have the opportunity to see serval, crowned cranes, lion, wild dog, elephant, giraffe, puku, hippo and crocodiles.

Chikoko Tree Camp, South Luangwa National Park

Located on the west bank in the South Luangwa National Park, a few kilometres upstream from parent camp Tafika, the simple yet comfortable Chikoko Tree Camp is only accessible on foot.  The Chikoko Tree Camp, built from natural materials and raised to sit within the surrounding acacia tree canopy, offer spectacular views of the surrounding area and the wildlife that moves through the grove.

The unforgettable walking safaris are for the true safari enthusiast who can lose themselves in the minutiae of the bush but be equally excited about tracking lions and elephants. Accompanied by an experienced guide, an armed National Park scout and a tea bearer, you’ll explore the worn animal paths twice a day. The four-hour long morning walk starts early to avoid the heat but afternoon walks are shorter and return before dusk.
