Very best of Zambia Safari
Dates: September – not scheduled
This rate includes flights from Lusaka, park fees, accommodation, guiding and drinks.
Join our wonderful very best of Zambia Safari. It starts at Baines Camp in the fantastic Lower Zambezi where we enjoy wonderful workshop facilities, river photography and exceptional dining on one of the greatest rivers in the world. This camp is like a home from home with excellent staff and is a great place to fine tune the camera skills and take some great landscapes before we reach the action packed Luangwa Valley.
Then we fly to Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park where we stay in the stunning Luangwa House and Tena Tena in two of the very best game viewing areas of Africa. Luangwa is one of the great game parks of Southern African and is particularly regarded for its wonderful riverine scenery, high leopard concentrations and excellent guiding. We can expect excellent predator concentrations, particularly leopard, in and around the shrinking wafwas where animals concentrate at this time of year. (Luangwa has vast flocks of yellow-billed storks, pelicans and other water birds and birding is also very exciting at this time of year with fishing parties a common sight at the lagoons. Large concentrations of carmine bee-eaters nest in the river banks. Hippo are also found in dense concentrations.
Day 1 – 4
On day 1 you will depart from Lusaka on a private charter into the Lower Zambezi National Park and then enjoy 4 years at the fantastic 5-star camp on the Lower Zambezi
Day 5 – 9
You will be met from your international flight at Lusaka International Airport and fly with Proflight to Mfuwe International Airport. Here you will be met by Robin Pope Safaris and driven by road to the start of the safari at Luangwa House where we will spend the next 4 nights. This stunning villa in the bush has its own private water hole and a wonderful ambience.
Day 9 – 11
We will visit the Kawaza School which has been adopted by Project Luangwa and is supported by everyone visiting Luangwa and then drive onwards to Tena Tena which is the Robin Pope Safaris flagship camp in the remote Nsefu Sector. This is a luxury tented camp with a wonderful wilderness experience. The Nsefu sector was first pronounced a game reserve in 1966 some five years before the South Luangwa was even declared and has always been recognised as an outstanding game-viewing area.
We will return to Mfuwe in time for your onward flight back to Lusaka. I guarantee that you will want to return.
