What our specialists say...

This safari has been hand-picked by our most experienced Zambia Specialists as the ideal trip to Zambia. This safari features five different camps in a remote area of the South Luangwa National Park. On the trip you'll have the chance to experience game drives, walking safaris and night drives. Zambia's South Luangwa is renowned for its excellent leopard sightings and chances of seeing these beautiful cats are high. Other game frequently seen includes lion, buffalo, elephant, giraffe, puku, hippo, crocodile, zebra and more. Birds are beautiful with particularly colourful species including yellow and saddle billed storks, spoonbills, malachite kingfishers and huge colonies of carmine bee-eaters in September and October. All the camps we've picked have superb character, some with tree houses perched high above the Luangwa River and others with thatched chalets beside lagoons full of hippos.
