Luangwa Valley

Comprising two main areas, the North and South. The North being an incredibly remote wilderness area with just a couple of small and exciting bush camps, where walking safaris are the main activity. Lions, buffalo and hyena provide some spectacular sightings. The North combines well with a safari to the South Luangwa where there are a choice of stunning safari lodges and small (extremely comfortable) bush camps. Although better known than the North, this is still an uncrowded safari destination with simply amazing wildlife which you can encounter on game drives during the day and at night, also on walking safaris. The Luangwa river heaves with hippo, expect lots of elephants and a very good chance of some special leopard sightings often during the day and often hunting!

I would not hesitate to suggest the Luangwa for a first safari or for the most seasoned wildlife traveller/photographer. One benefit is it can be easily combined with other parts of Zambia. Here below are a choice of safaris but feel free to call to discuss other options or ideas for a tailored itinerary.

The combination of the Zambia's South Luangwa National Park and the vast Kafue National park is with out doubt the best way to experience the greatest diversity of wildlife in Zambia. More than that this combination introduces you to a very wide diversity of habitats that can trick you to thinking you have changed country half way through your safari.

This can be arranged any time from May to NovemberThis safari combines Musekese with Kafunta Safaris Camps including the new Three Rivers .

We have brought together camps which compliment each other, all have a great reputation for the comfort levels, great meals and exceptional guides.
