Tour Overview

The South Luangwa National Park boasts one of the largest concentrations of game in Africa – Lions, elephants, buffalo, giraffe, antelope and so many other animals live, breed and eat here; and that’s not even mentioning the 460 bird species that have been recorded in the park. Experienced game drivers often pass up to 15 different species of animal on a single trail, allowing adventurers to spot anything from lions to hyenas, warthogs to the rare puku and beyond. Follow the call of the wild on this short trip through a land full of life. This itinerary starts and finishes in Mfuwe. Transfers are available at an additional cost from both Chipata if you travel by bus from Lusaka and Mfuwe Airport if you come by aeroplane. This is one of our Short Breaks and is slightly different to our group tours. There is no group leader but rather a local guide with the idea being that you maintain a level of independence during down time. You'll most likely travel on a join-in basis, which means you may or may not be joined by others for activities and transportation, depending on demand.

Highlights

  • All travellers 18 years and older will be required to be fully vaccinated.

  • Do night game drive (at an additional cost)

Day 1 : Welcome To Mfuwe!

Location: Mfuwe

Accommodation: Camp, Lodge

Accommodation Name: Good tourism lodge

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

You’re free to arrive at any time today as there are no activities planned. If you’re looking to take a transfer from Chipata bus stop to Mfuwe or Mfuwe Airport, this can be arranged for an additional cost.

Day 2 : South Luangwa National Park

Accommodation: Hotel, Camp, Lodge

Accommodation Name: Good Tourism Compliant Lodge

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today is a full day for experiencing the wilds of South Luangwa National Park, keeping an eye and an ear out for trumpeting elephants, chuckling baboons, roaring lions and many other exciting animals. Begin the day with a morning game drive to see these beasts at their most active, followed by a bit of down time at the lodge when the sun burns at its hottest. Once the sun cools down in the evening, jump on board the safari vehicle once again and travel back to South Luangwa National Park. Animals will likely be cooling down at the banks, playing and drinking in these less intense conditions. . South Luangwa National Park is the embodiment of big game country. Huge herds of buffalo and elephants are often seen roaming around the savannah, matched by the size of the local lion prides. Many African elephants roam the park – these majestic beasts are the largest known subspecies of elephant in the world. There’s also the chance to see zebra, impala, wildebeest, giraffe, lions, leopards, hyenas, jackals, warthogs, impala, baboons, monkeys and many more – the area is positively teeming with life, and that’s before mentioning the birds! Avian life around the river is truly spectacular with sightings of saddle-billed storks, malachite kingfishers, fish eagles, goliath herons and beautiful bee-eaters often seen fluttering around the banks. Elephants will often congregate to play and drink in the Luangwa river, and hippopotamus sightings are fairy frequent too. You might even spot a crocodile on the riverbanks, although these fearsome beasts are surprisingly shy. Return to the lodge in the evening to spend your last night with the group reminiscing about the day just past. Perhaps enjoy a drink and chat about the animals just witnessed on this exciting day.
