Zambia Explorer - Tailor Made Fly-In

Highlights * South & North Luangwa * Kafue National Park * Game Drives & Walks

DAYS 1-2

Fly from Lusaka to South Luangwa and transfer to Tafika Camp for a 2 night stay. The camp’s simple but spacious chalets are built entirely from natural materials, with open-air, en suite bathrooms. The area is known for exceptional game viewing and leopard sightings. Activities include game drives and walks, or head out on a mountain bike if you’re feeling more active.

DAYS 3-4

Cross the river and walk to your Chikoko Bush Camp – there are 2 simple camps, one with sleeping platforms raised 3 metres above the ground and one in an ebony grove on the banks of the Crocodile River. There are no roads here so as you walk you’ll follow in the footsteps of animals, stepping in tracks laid by elephants or hippos. This is what the South Luangwa is famous for, a close-to-nature experience, seeing wildlife from a different perspective and exciting your senses. You’ll be accompanied at all times by an experienced walking guide and a National Parks scout. Savour evening meals cooked on the campfire, under the stars.

DAYS 5-7

Back across the river to the airstrip for a light aircraft flight to the North Luangwa. Mwaleshi Camp is your base for the next 3 nights. There are only 2 small camps in the whole of this park ensuring an exclusive experience – and as the wildlife is less accustomed to humans, it’s all the more natural and rewarding. The camp is beside the Mwaleshi River, an area known for lions and herds of buffalo, with game viewing mainly on foot.

DAYS 8-10

Fly via Mfuwe to Lusaka then continue by road to Kafue National Park. This is Zambia’s largest park yet it is still relatively undeveloped and natural. Don’t expect huge numbers of game here, it’s more about the diversity, the landscapes ranging from watery swamps to woodlands and plains. Your base for 3 nights is Musekese Camp, perched on the edge of a lagoon. Daily activities are largely dictated by the wildlife, with game drives and walks as well as boating along the Kafue River.

DAY 11

Return by road to Lusaka where you can fly onto another destination or return home.

This itinerary takes you to some of Zambia’s most pristine and off-the-beaten-track areas. It is tailor-made and can be personalised for your requirements.
