Tour: 9 Day Zambia Safari & Victoria Falls # 28

LUXURY SAFARI: 9 DAYS ZAMBIA SAFARI & VICTORIA FALLS

Why you'd love it!

Zambia today is pristine African wilderness, making it a wild and spectacular destination! It is a landlocked country that has only recently begun to appear on the international visitor’s itinerary. With thousands of square miles of bushveld and 19 National Parks, it is a premier safari and big game viewing destination. River cruises and activities on the Lower Zambezi, walking safaris in the South Luangwa, and game drives in the Kafue all provide excellent opportunities for tracking Big Game!

Zambia has a diverse range of accommodation options, from upscale family-friendly safari houses to ultra-luxurious bush retreats. Walking Safaris can stay in rustic 5 star bush camps, or in 5 star bush chic at Sausage Tree Camp on the banks of the Lower Zambezi. Wilderness Safaris, one of our preferred partners, operates luxury tented bush camps in the Kafue, South Luangwa, and Victoria Falls regions. Zambia is also the ultimate African Honeymoon destination, with packages that include a visit to Victoria Falls as well as an African safari.

Get ready for a great experience!

DAY 1-3: ZAMBIA / South Luangwa National Park

CLICK on BUTTONS below for IMAGES

Full boarding, excl. Top Shelf brands

Experts have dubbed South Luangwa to be one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and not without reason: The concentration of animals around the Luangwa River, and its oxbow lagoons, is among the most intense in Africa.

The Luangwa River is the most intact major river system in Africa and is the life-blood of this 9059 km2 Park. The Park hosts a wide variety of wildlife, birds and vegetation. The now famous ‘walking safari’ originated in this Park and is still one of the finest ways to experience Africa’s pristine wilderness first-hand. The changing seasons add to the Park’s richness, ranging from; dry, bare bushveld in the winter, to a lush, green wonderland in the summer months. There are 60 different animal species and over 400 different bird species in South Luangwa National Park. The only notable exception is the rhino, sadly poached to extinction.

With about 400 of Zambia’s 732 species of birds appearing in the Park, including 39 birds of prey and 47 migrant species, there is plenty for the birdwatcher to spot, whatever the season.

ZAMBIA

Land of the walking safaris!

Zambia is a safari enthusiast’s dream with over 30% of the country’s land allocated to National Parks. Not only is there an array of some of the world’s biggest and best game parks to choose from for a Zambia tour or safari, such as the vast Kafue National Park or the famous South Luangwa, there are also many safari activities available too. Whether it’s a canoeing safari along the game-rich shores of the Lower Zambezi, or following in the footsteps of the pioneers into the Zambian interior on a mobile walking safari through North Luangwa National Park, you are sure to find something in the continent’s spectacular wildlife and scenery to thrill and amaze you.

South Luanga Tented Camp

Big game safari days!

A stylishly tented piece of heaven, the Camp is located in the game-heavy central region of the South Luangwa National Park. Nestled under huge ebony trees on the banks of a broad section of the Luangwa River. A friendly, relaxed atmosphere with sweeping river views that will seduce even the most seasoned safari-goer.

Between the baboons chattering above you in the beautiful ebony branches, and the herds of elephants who like to pop into camp for a visit, you’ll stay entertained throughout your unforgettable time here. The beautiful central lounge, built around a fallen ebony tree, is the perfect spot to share your sunrise coffee with other guests while you enjoy birds’ songs calling across the picturesque Luangwa River. Satisfy your palate with brunch in the shade of that charming lounge. Later in the day, enjoy a delicious dinner served on crisp white linens by the scenic river bank.

Be sure to alert the staff if your trip includes a birthday or anniversary celebration, and let them pamper you with a special treat, like one of Chef’s delightful soufflés! The attentive and pleasant staff is dedicated to accommodating your needs and ensuring your satisfaction, whether you’d like a romantic candlelit dinner set for two under a bright blanket of stars, or just need a cool towel to refresh you after a game drive.

With only four uniquely spacious octagonal chalets, and one two-bedroom family unit, canvas and thatched chalets are as intimate as they are luxurious.

Recharge after the excitement of your afternoon drive in your uncluttered and meticulously maintained chalet, with its large honeymoon size bed gently draped in mosquito netting and private open-air outdoor facilities featuring flush WC, basin and shower. And when you’re not using those open-air facilities, the local monkeys will jump in and give you a show! If you’re in the mood for something more indulgent, have a soak and a sundowner in the Victorian-style bathtub with a charming view of the river through your own private screened window.

ACTIVITIES
Guides at the camp are known for their dedication to both the guest experience and the wellbeing of the local wildlife. Whether you come across a herd of elephants or a pride of lions, their expert skill and calm response will ensure your safety and enhance your fun, while leaving the animals undisturbed. If you prefer to watch wildlife from the comfort of a hardtop Land Rover, you’ll enjoy it even more when you pause your adventure for a bit of tea and scrumptious cakes served on the hood of the vehicle. Evening drives are as exciting as those in the day, so you night owls will have plenty to keep you entertained.

If you wish to view wildlife on foot, you won’t be disappointed by the educational experience, which might include a chat with your guide about the intricacies of the park’s ecosystem, learning to read animal tracks in the sand, or stepping within a few yards of raucous hippos.

SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK

Safari in Zambia!

South Luangwa National Park in Eastern Zambia, the southernmost of three national parks in the valley of the Luangwa River, is a world-renowned wildlife haven. Concentrations of game along the meandering Luangwa River and its lagoons are amongst the most intense in Africa. The river teems with hippo and crocodile and provides a lifeline for one of the greatest diversities of habitat and wildlife, supporting more than 60 species of mammals and over 400 species of birds. It supports large populations of Thornicroft’s giraffe, and herds of elephants and Cape buffaloes often several hundred strong. It is one of the best-known national parks in Africa for walking safaris. Founded as a game reserve in 1938, it became a national park in 1972 and now covers 9,050 km2.

The Luangwa valley, continued to the west by the Lunsemfwa River valley, contains some varieties of animals such as Cookson’s wildebeest and Crawshay’s zebra which are endemic or near-endemic to the valley. It also represents something of a natural barrier to human migration and transport, no roads cross it and this has helped conserve its wildlife.

The Park is unfenced and bordered to the west by a steep escarpment and to the east by the Luangwa River. The Luangwa Valley lies at the tail end of the Great African Rift Valley system, which extends 4,000 km all the way from the Red Sea down to the Pungwe River mouth in Mozambique.
British conservationist Norman Carr was influential in setting up the South Luangwa National Park. A man ahead of his time, Norman Carr broke the mold of track-and-hunt safari and created conservation-based tourism.
In the 1950s, he persuaded the Paramount Chief to set aside a portion of tribal land as a Game Reserve and built the first game viewing camp open to the public in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia). Guests shot with cameras and not rifles; thus, the South Luangwa became the home of the photographic and walking safari. Profits from this remote photographic camp in the bush went back into community and eco-tourism in Africa was born. Norman Carr Safaris continues to follow his legacy across Zambia by empowering the local community.

The park spans two ecoregions, both of them woodland savannah, distinguished by the dominant tree: Southern Miombo woodlands cover the higher slopes of the valley, while Zambezian and Mopane woodlands cover the bottom of the valley. The Mopane tree tolerates the higher temperatures and lower rainfall found at lower elevations than miombo trees which are found on the higher plateau. Within these woodland savannahs are larger patches of grassland, so that grazers such as zebra and leaf browsers such as giraffe are found in profusion in the same areas. Patches of flooded grassland habitats (floodplains) are found close to the river, on which hippopotamus graze at night. Their dung released into the river fertilizes its waters and sustains the fish population which in turn sustains the crocodiles.

Lower Luangwa Valley Camp

Big game safari days!

A small and intimate camp set in the shade of some tall African ebony trees, perched on the bank of a winding section of the Luangwa River!

At the centre of camp, just yards away from the riverbank and enclosed on three sides by a waist-high reed wall, is the main area. Here you will find contemporary furniture, such as hanging wicker chairs, molded wooden stools and low-slung sofas, is set on sandy floors, reinforcing the camp’s rustic feel. A dining table is surrounded by directors’ chairs, and there’s a well-stocked bar and small library, too. The high thatched ceiling provides a convenient roosting place for epauleted fruit bats, which you’ll often spot hanging from the rafters.

Overlooking the river, the campfire is lit in the mornings to cook porridge and toast at breakfast, and in the evening as a gathering place for pre-dinner drinks. Away from the river, a thatched building on stilts serves both as a hide, with a vantage point overlooking a small lagoon where animals often come to drink in the heat of the day, and as a shady lunch spot.

Only 3 spacious chalets, each set well apart, with uninterrupted views of the river and to the Nchindeni Hills beyond.
Each is thatched, and raised about 2 yards off the ground on a timber platform. There are reed walls on three sides but the front of the bedroom is completely open, leading to a private viewing deck where comfortable chairs face the river. Although still very African in style the interiors are both contemporary and chic. Black mosquito netting works well with the neutral color scheme and high-quality but simple furniture. Each room has a king-size bed, or two small double four-posters A curtained doorway leads through to an open-air, en-suite bathroom, where a low front wall ensures a great view over the Luangwa River. Each bathroom has double basins, a flush toilet and a large open ‘his and hers’ shower. Discreet solar panels behind each chalet provide lighting and hot water.

ACTIVITIES
Activities in camp consist of walking safaris, day and night game drives in a variety of environments, including riverine forest, mopane woodland and open floodplains. These attract a diversity of wildlife, from plains game such as Crawshay’s zebra and impala, to wetland animals like puku and waterbuck, as well as the shyer species that prefer the riverine thickets, like kudu and leopard.
