08 Day Zambia South Luangwa Walking Safari (Accommodated and Mobile Camping)

Silver Rated, Scheduled Accommodated & Camping Safari (Zambia/Zimbabwe)

Safari Highlights:
Zambia, South Luangwa Valley, walking trails, Luangwa River, unspoilt wilderness areas
Overview:
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 400 species of birds. After a night at Nkwali, the safari heads to the north of the park where you will walk for five days covering approximately 10km a day, following the Mupamadzi River. This clear river is a major tributary of the Luangwa. The area is remote and wild, the terrain and habitats varied and the game shy and unaccustomed to man. From ants to buffalo, a bird's nest to tracking a lion, you will learn the many facets of the bush. The fully serviced mobile camp is extremely comfortable and well-equipped with walk-in tents and full bedding. The shower is under a tree and the toilet is a bush loo with a wooden throne. Meals of a high standard are served under the open sky and a final night at Tena Tena or Nsefu completes the safari
