Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp and Walking Safaris (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia


Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp and Walking Safaris (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia - Location:

Now you can explore the pristine wilderness of the South Luangwa – the home of the walking safari - with one of Zambia’s most experienced expert guides, whilst enjoying luxurious tent accommodation and fine dining. This is the ultimate bush adventure by foot, without forsaking personalized service or comfort.

We have chosen the perfect location in the South Luangwa. It was in this park that “walking safaris” first made their debut and it is undoubtedly one of the most exciting ways to experience the incredible sights, sounds and smells of the bush. Sanctuary Zebra Plains is located in a particularly beautiful and untouched area of the park, perched on a sand bank at the confluence of the Luangwa and Chibembe Rivers.

The unspoilt bush around camp is home to large populations of zebra, elephant, buffalo, crocodile and puku, as well as various endemic species and over 400 bird species. The diversity of habitats here provide from some of the most spectacular walking in Africa over terrain that is ideal for exploring with plenty of shade and long sweeping views.

Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp and Walking Safaris (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia - Accommodation:

Sanctuary Zebra Plains is a luxury safari camp with just four traditional tents – two doubles and two twins. The camp accommodates a maximum of six guests, allowing for an intimate exploration of the South Luangwa. All tents have real beds, campaign furniture, mosquito nets, en suite facilities and flush toilets. Water for al fresco showers is mixed to your preferred temperature by a tent attendant. The main mess tent has a dining area although most of the gourmet meals will be served in the open in carefully selected vantage points . There is also a small library and bar area.

This is a seasonal camp which operates from June to October each year. Sanctuary Zebra Plains has been designed to leave the lowest possible carbon footprint and is packed up completely each year with no trace that it was ever there between seasons.

In order to fully explore this beautiful part of Africa, guests will spend three nights at Sanctuary Zebra Plains. We suggest combining a walking safari with a stay at either Sanctuary Puku Ridge Camp or Sanctuary Chichele Presidential Lodge, both in the South Luangwa National Park.

Sanctuary Zebra Plains Camp and Walking Safaris (South Luangwa National Park) Zambia - Activities:

What sets the area apart is quite simply the concentration of wildlife. On the plains zebra, antelope, buffalo and puku congregate alongside endemic species such as the Thornicroft's giraffe, as well as the unique Crawshay's zebra and Cookson’s wildebeest. Predators such as lion, leopard and the elusive wild dog can be seen tracking their quarry whilst the rivers and tributaries are teeming with hippo, elephant and crocodile.

Garth Hovell, widely regarded as one of Zambia’s most highly respected guides with almost twenty years of experience, personally leads walks twice a day. One morning you might wander along a river bank, observing elephants before canoeing across to a large island across from camp to get up close to plains game. Later that day you may choose to explore nearby Zebra Plains where buffalo, zebra and eland gather in large herds on the open savannah, a rarity in the wooded terrain of the South Luangwa. Another day your destination might be the Changwa Channel, featured in David Attenborough’s “Life” series and home to one of the highest concentrations of hippos on earth.
