North & South Luangwa Safari

From  R75,552.00per person sharing

Explore two diverse parts of the Luangwa Valley – both renowned for their walking safaris.  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.

Days 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. The flight is on average one hour.  At Mfuwe International Airport a guide from Robin Pope Safaris will meet you and transfer you by vehicle to Luangwa River Camp, through colourful local scenes of villages, agriculture as well as bush. The camp is located on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking a very game rich area of the South Luangwa National Park and is ideally situated for the start of your safari. All rooms have a view of the river. Depending on your arrival time, you may enjoy a scrumptious lunch followed by siesta before heading off to the park for your first game activity which you may opt to extend into a night drive. LUANGWA RIVER CAMP

Days 2 Often you will get up before dawn so you’re in the park in time for the fantastic dawn light – the camp ideally has access to the park across the river, so it takes only a few swift minutes. You’ll maximise your time in the park finding many subjects to photograph from the very small to the very big. After enjoying a delicious lunch, you can choose to relax during siesta, read a good book or simply lounge and enjoy your surroundings. After a refreshing cup of tea or coffee and scrumptious cake you go back to the park to find even more in the afternoon and evening, returning to camp for dinner around 20h30. LUANGWA RIVER CAMP

Days 3 After an early breakfast, a game drive through the park and across the river takes you into the exclusive Nsefu Sector, which is recognised as a phenomenal game viewing area; taking you to Tena Tena. The camp sits nestled under a magnificent and thick grove of mahogany trees. On a double tiered river bank each of the 6 tents enjoys its own private view onto a long stretch of the Luangwa River. TENA TENA CAMP

Days 4 During your stay you have the opportunity to drive or walk through the ebony groves or, depending on the heat and time of year, to explore further afield with an all day picnic drive to the salt pans that will cover different habitats and is an exceptional day’s safari. There is also the option of visiting the community at Kawaza Village to experience life in a real non-tourist village. For the shoppers…there is Tribal textiles for locally printed materials that are made in various items (bags, clothes, bedding and more); great place to pick up some souvenirs or gifts for friends and family. TENA TENA CAMP

Days 5 to 7 Mwaleshi is a short flight from Mfuwe; the views from the plane’s window you will enjoy include the meandering Luangwa River full of hippos and a chance to spot other game amongst the ox-bow lakes. A ten minute drive from the airstrip will see you arrive at Mwaleshi Camp. This owner run camp consists of four reed and grass chalets situated on the Mwaleshi River, a clear perennial tributary of the Luangwa River.  The remoteness of the camp is enhanced by the lack of roads.  Game viewing is primarily on foot and it is also possible to do a drive and walking day trip to the Mwaleshi Falls.The park is very remote and wild – a place for real bush lovers to visit. MWALESHI

Day 8 A morning flight to Lusaka via Mfuwe to connect with your onward flight to your next destination.
