Day 1
You will be met at Lusaka Airport and transferred to your hotel in the capital city of Zambia.
 
Check in, settle in and relax under warm blue African skies.  
Day 2
Transfer to Lusaka Airport for your light aircraft to South Luangwa National Park.
   
From Mfuwe Airport you will be transferred to your game lodge situated in one of the world's most famous wildlife areas. Settle into your lodge in this renowned wildlife wilderness, before setting out in the late afternoon on an open top game viewing drive with a lodge ranger. Game is most easily sighted in the dry season from April to October, but the park is at its most beautiful in the first half of the year after the rains of the wet season.
Day 3
South Luangwa National Park is Zambia’s most famous wildlife park, covering an area in excess of 5,600 square miles (9,050 square kilometres). Sustained by the great Luangwa River the park hosts a wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation. The changing seasons add to the park’s richness, ranging from dry bare bushveld in the winter to a lush green in the summer in this pristine wildlife wilderness.
  
Rise early this morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view wildlife either on foot or from an open top safari vehicle in this great conservation area. With over 60 different animal species, the concentration of game around the Luangwa River and its ox bow lagoons is amongst the highest in Africa, including four of the Big 5 – lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard (sadly rhino has been poached to extinction). Also search for zebra, giraffe, antelope and much more, with leopard sightings being particularly outstanding.
 
Birding is also outstanding with over 400 different species, including large flocks of cranes. From late August to October you can enjoy the amazing spectacle of thousands of southern carmine bee-eaters nesting along the river banks. From November numerous migratory birds start to arrive to exploit the feeding opportunities presented during the warm rainy season - including red chested cuckoo, hobbies and birds of prey such as steppe buzzards that travel from as far afield as Russia.
 
Afterwards transfer to your bushcamp where you can relax in the heat of the day, before setting out in the late afternoon for either a game drive or walk with your ranger. In the evening relax by the campfire under a balmy African sky and hear the untamed sounds of wildlife all around.
Day 4
Rise early this morning to enjoy more thrilling game activities in South Luangwa National Park.
 
Relax in the heat of the day at your bushcamp, before venturing out again in the afternoon with your lodge ranger in search of elephants, buffalo, crocodiles, hippo, lion, the elusive leopard and much more.
 
Activities are jointly decided by guests at camp, but usually involve a game drive in the morning and a walking safari in the afternoon. In the eveneing enjoy relaxing around the campfire.
