The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. It covers an area of over 9000 sq. km. through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The ox bow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game – including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo – and over 450 species of birds.

Day 1 On arrival at Lusaka International Airport, you will be met by a Robin Pope Safaris’ representative who will have a name board with your names. He/She will assist you with immigration and customs clearing then check in for your flight to Mfuwe, South Luangwa.  At Mfuwe International Airport a guide from Robin Pope Safaris will meet you for transfer to Luangwa River Camp, through colourful village life. The ten bedded camp is situated opposite the Luangwa Wafwa (a game rich area of the park) in the Upper Lupande Game Management Area.  It offers all the creature comforts of a camp yet with all the intimacy, tailored activities and flexible mealtimes you come to expect from a bush camp.  The camp is unique with its décor of locally crafted and handmade details.  The main area is elevated between 1-3 metres on wooden decks affording great views to the park and river. The swimming pool is sunk into the deck, linked by a waterfall. Seating areas are all elevated and open plan with a bar area as well as a dining and reading area. Depending on your arrival time you may settle in for some lunch, siesta then off on an afternoon activity. There is an option to turn back after sundowners or continue to see what nocturnals you can spot, returning to camp by 8pm. LUANGWA RIVER CAMP

Day 2  A full day to explore, either on foot or on a game drive. LUANGWA RIVER CAMP

Day 3 After an early breakfast, transfer will be a game drive up North to the Nsefu Sector. The Nsefu Sector was recognized then as a phenomenal area and it still is. Robin Pope Safaris owns the only two camps in this sector of the Park.   Tena Tena is a remote intimate camp which lies within the Nsefu Sector, enjoys a stunning location on a bend of the Luangwa River.  Most meals are taken under the shade of a huge Mahogany tree in the centre of the camp.  On arrival you will be shown to your tent and then lunch will be served followed by a well-deserved siesta before the afternoon and evening game drive. TENA TENA

Day 4   A day to explore the Tena Tena area fully – a chance to drive or walk through the ebony groves.  Or you may decide this is an ideal day, depending on the heat and time of year, to explore further afield. Possibly an all day picnic drive, day tour to Kawaza village for a cultural experience or a mix of walking and game drives – nothing is set in stone, all will be tailored to your interests. TENA TENA

Day 5 After an early breakfast, a transfer game drive through the park onto Nsefu. The camp was the first game camp in Zambia and dates back to the early fifties. There are six round rondavels, each room has a clear view of the sweeping bend of the Luangwa River through large windows and from the wooden verandahs. On arrival you will be shown to your rondavel and then lunch will be served followed by a well-deserved siesta before the afternoon and evening game drive. NSEFU CAMP

Day 6-7 After breakfast around the camp fire, your safari will continue with another relaxing day at Nsefu, with morning and evening game activities. Depending on time of year an all day picnic drive to the salt pans that will cover different habitats comes highly recommended and is an exceptional day’s safari.  Nothing is set in stone and your days will be designed and planned with your bearing your interests in mind. You can mix and match activities to maximize your experience in this game rich and remote area of the Luangwa. NSEFU CAMP

Day 8 Depending on your flight time we will try and fit in one last activity before you head to Mfuwe Airport (1.5 hours) for the flight to Lusaka and your onward connection.
