Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Lusaka.

  • On arrival in Lusaka you will be met and assisted through immigration and with your luggage. You will be shown to your internal flight to Mfuwe. Here you will meet your guide and will be driven through Mfuwe town to the South Luangwa National Park and your lodge.

  • A full day of game viewing activities. The South Luangwa National Park is considered one of the finest safari destinations in Africa, where you can expect to see lion, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, elephant, hippo, hyena and more.

  • Today you will have the option of taking both a morning and afternoon activity. Normally the activities will start at around 6am, and you will then return mid-morning for lunch and siesta before going out again in the afternoon.

  • Enjoy another full day of safari activities, boating on the Luangwa River, walking or drives on the all-weather roads.

  • This morning you will transfer by boat further north. This journey will take a few hours, depending on what you see along the way. On arrival you will be able to explore the area on foot to see what game you can find.

  • Spend today either boating through the ebony groves or walking through the Nsefu sector, soaking up the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful area of the park.

  • A second full day at Nsefu enjoying safari activities based on the Luangwa River.

  • This morning your guide will take you down river again by boat to Nkwali Camp on the banks of the Luangwa for your final few nights on safari. Here you will be able to enjoy some game drives and night drives.

  • Explore the more southern parts of the South Luangwa National Park using both a boat and 4x4 vehicle.

  • Another full day of safari activities from Nkwali, perhaps explore the game management area surrounding the camp, well known for its game sightings.

  • Spend a relaxing morning before heading out to Mfuwe Airport for your flight to Lusaka. On your way you can visit Tribal Textiles for some locally produced shopping if you wish, so make sure you have enough space in your luggage!

  • Arrive home today to complete your journey.
