Program

Day 1: Mfuwe

After arrival at Mfuwe Airport transfer to the camp (Croc. Valley or similar). Camping next to the Luangwa River. Dinner is being served underneath the clear African sky.

Days 2 and 3: South Luangwa National Park to Mfuwe Area

These days you will spend with game viewing inside the National Park. You will explore the area with the game viewing vehicle. Game drives along the Luangwa River often produce spectacular sightings. Hippo families occur in high numbers in the river, unequalled in Africa.

During the dry season (July to October), many side channels of the river dry up, leaving the fish trapped. This attracts many different species of predators, such as the African fish eagle, jackal, and hyena, to mention but a few. The colorful Carmine bee-eaters are often seen perching in front of their nests in the river banks.

Camping on the banks of the Luangwa River at Croc Valley Camp or similar.

Day 4 and 5: South Luangwa National Park to Nsefu Sector

Early in the morning you pack up the camp and drive via traditional villages to the Nsefu sector of the park. South Luangwa National Park is known for its abundance of African wildlife: Thorneycroft’s giraffe, Cookson’s Gnu, Crawshay’s Zebra, and big herds of buffalo and elephant. In the mornings you will do game walks along the Luangwa River, in the afternoon game drives with the 4x4 vehicle.

Camping on the banks of the Luangwa River at Kalovia Campsite, exclusively reserved for the group.

Day 6 and 7: Through Luambe National Park to North Luangwa National Park

Packing up and drive via Luambe National Park to North Luangwa Park which is remote and wild. You will do game walks along the Luangwa river with a scout. The campsite is beautifully located on the confluence of the Mwaleshi and the Luangwa River. Big herds of hippos call this area their home; elephants, various species of antelopes as well as wild dogs and even lions can be seen from the camp.

Camping at the community campsite just outside the National Park.

Day 8: North Luangwa National Park

Today’s stage takes you from the hot Luangwa Valley up the steep escarpment (altitude 1400 m). While you drive the temperature gets cooler and the dry savannah gives way to the Miombo forest. In the northern area of the park you set up the camp at an exclusive campsite near the Mano Gate. In the afternoon you will take a walk along the river and it is possible to take a refreshing bath in the mountain stream.

Camping at Sakala Campsite at the park’s border.

Day 9: Mutinondo Wilderness

Early in the morning you drive to the next stop, Mutinondo Wilderness. Huge ‘whalebacks’ (granite boulders) scattered in between the Miombo forest create the unique landscape of Mutinondo. You will do a sunset walk to enjoy the special atmosphere at dusk. Camping at the campsite of Mutinondo Wilderness.

Day 10 and 11: Bangweulu Swamps

These remote swamps are unique in ecology, fauna, and flora. The water covers huge areas of the swamps until about April each year, when the waterline slowly recedes, and water birds congregate to feed in the pools and channels that are left behind.

It is here that you will be looking for the elusive Shoebilled stork. This interesting, strange looking bird has become very rare in most parts of Africa, but here in the Bangweulu they are fairly common.

You move on foot and with a boat (depending on the water level) to find the water birds, the huge herds of Lechwe antelope, and other animals like tsessebe (a species of antelope), zebra, buffalo and black backed jackal.

The herds of thousands of Lechwe in this seemingly endless landscape, is an unforgettable African experience.

Camping at Nsobe Campsite.

Day 12 and 13: Kasanka National Park

Early in the morning you go further to the Kasanka National Park. Towards the end of October and in November millions of straw-colored fruit bats arrive from the Congo. This is known as the world’s biggest migration if mammals - a sight not to be missed! With some luck you will be able to observe the rare and shy Sitatunga Antelope (among other animals). The bird life is amazing as well at this time of the year. Camping inside the National Park.

Day 14: Kundalila Falls to Mkushi

On the Great North Road, you head towards Lusaka. En route you will make a detour to Kundalila Falls to do a short hike to the falls, where you can also take a refreshing swim.

Overnight at Forest Inn near Mkushi. Dinner in a restaurant.

Day 15: Lusaka

Transfer to Lusaka and departure in the afternoon. (Optional additional night in Lusaka and departure on day 16).
