Itinerary Summary

Day 1 - Flight from Lusaka Airport to Mfuwe Airport in South Luangwa

  • On arrival off your international flight at Lusaka Airport, you will catch a connecting domestic flight to Mfuwe Airport in the South Luangwa.
  • At Mfuwe Airport, a safari guide from Wildlife Camp will welcome you and transfer you to Wildlife Camp where you will spend the first 3 nights of your unforgettable Zambian safari.

Brief notes about the South Luangwa National Park

For most visitors, South Luangwa National Park is by far the most practical park to visit in the valley. This is Zambia’s premier wildlife park, with superb wildlife and many excellent camps. This is where the now famous walking safaris started from over 60 years ago and this unique African destination retains some of the finest world-class safari guides.

There are many contenders for the title of Africa’s best game park. The Serengeti, Amboseli, Ngorongoro Crater, Etosha, Kruger, Moremi and Mana Pools would certainly be high on the list. South Luangwa has a better claim than most. Some of these other areas will match its phenomenally high game densities. Many others – the lesser known of Africa’s parks – will have equally few visitors. One or two also allow night drives, which open up a different, nocturnal world to view, allowing leopards to be commonly seen and even watched whilst hunting.

However, few have South Luangwa’s high quality of guiding together with its remarkable wildlife spectacles, day and night, in the isolation of a true wilderness. These elements, perhaps, are how the contenders ought to be judged, and on these the South Luangwa Park comes out around the top of the list.

You will have the above activities in the company of qualified professional guides from Wildlife Camp during your safari in the South Luangwa National Park.
