    Day 1-4 London - South Luangwa
    London - South Luangwa

    Arrive in Lusaka, you will board a scheduled light aircraft flight to Mfuwe, followed by a road transfer to your authentic camp overlooking a permanent oxbow lagoon deep within the South Luangwa National Park.

    Hailed as the birthplace of the walking safari, on-foot excursions are still the best way of experiencing the South Luangwa and its tranquil rivers, ancient forests and open pans. Alongside Luwi’s experienced guides, you’ll traverse this scenic wilderness in search of lion, leopard, spotted hyena, wild dog, roan antelopes and elephant, as well endemic species like Thornicroft’s giraffe and Crawshay’s zebra. Birdwatchers should look out for hundreds of unique species including yellow-billed storks, carmine bee-eaters, herons and egrets.

    Day and night game drives are also on the menu, whilst the camp’s wildlife hide is the perfect spot to observe resident hippos and other wildlife wallowing in the lagoon. You’ll also have the opportunity to sleep out under the stars to complete your ultimate safari experience.
