African Safaris and Travel - Our safaris reflect every travelers style, time frame and budget!
The Classic Luangwa Safari enables guests to experience
the best the bountiful South Luangwa has to offer. We have
created an itinerary where you enjoy two nights in either
Chinzombo or Kapani followed by eight nights in our remote
bush camps (generally two nights in each camp.
believe this itinerary gives you the best opportunity and
plenty of time to combine walking and driving safaris and
explore the amazing variety of habitat and species of the
South Luangwa, with award winning guides in small, remote
camps – exploring a landscape unchanged for thousands of
Our bush camps have all been specifically located
to allow you to walk from camp to camp in a circuit if you
wish; arriving at your destination camp with your bags
waiting in your room and in time for brunch and a cold
drink. Alternatively you can transfer by an open 4X4 game
viewing vehicle. The bush camps are all very different in
design and have unique charm and lovely views of the dry
sand Luwi, or Luangwa Rivers.
Chinzombo or Kapami Lodge
You will be met at Lusaka Airport and escorted onto your
domestic flight to Mfuwe, a flight of just over 1 hour. Your
safari guide will meet you at Mfuwe Airport and drive you
the lodge to settle in and recover from your journey.
In the afternoon you’ll have a game drive and after
sundowners you’ll search for nocturnal species such as
genet, civet, porcupine and honey-badger, rarely seen in
daylight hours. Return to camp at around 7:30pm in time for
Luwi Bush Camp
After two nights at Kapani you will be driven deep into
the National Park to Luwi Bush Camp. Your first night is
likely to be accompanied by the noises of the wildlife
When day breaks and after a light breakfast around the
camp fire, you will head out on foot to pick up the fresh
tracks of a pride of lion or investigate the alarm calls of
the local troop of baboon.
This is no nature trail - this is the real thing - you
are tracking big game through the African bush, on foot like
the first Luangwa pioneers.
Nsolo Bush Camp
On the second morning at Luwi your guide will walk you
down the meandering Luwi River course.
Your destination is Nsolo, the second of your bush camps.
After a few hours gentle walking and exploration you’ll
arrive into camp to find a warm welcome, a cool drink,
brunch on the table and your bags in your room.
The next two days are spent on foot or in an open safari
vehicle exploring the wilds of the Nsolo area.
Kakuli Bush Camp
The next move takes you further down the Luwi River,
again on foot or by 4x4 game viewer if you prefer, to its
confluence with the main Luangwa River and to Kakuli Camp.
There are more game viewing tracks in this area so it is
possible to use vehicles as well as explore the area which
is famous for its high population of leopards on foot.
Mchenja Bush Camp
A taste of sophistication awaits you at Mchenja. The last
camp on the trail is set under the shade of immense ebony
trees. The five individually designed tents each have a bath
inside as well as an open, en-suite shower and toilet.
The main lounge houses a small plunge pool alongside the
bar and sitting area and meals are usually taken on the
river bank. You will be able to do both game walks and
drives and the wildlife viewing in this area is some of the
best in the Park.
