A great value Zambia safari spending 6 days wildlife viewing in South Luangwa National Park followed by 3 days at Victoria Falls.
Here at Tribes we rate South Luangwa National Park as one of our top spots for viewing African wildlife. Not only is the wildlife here diverse and prolific, including wonderful birdlife, strong lion prides, excellent leopard sightings plus a great range of other wildlife, but it is also a very beautiful park with some very large old trees amongst the grasslands and the Luangwa River snaking through. The park is also the birthplace of walking safaris, and the guiding here is second to none.
So, if you want some of the best African wildlife, a week in South Luangwa should be high on your list. Normally of course, this comes at a very high price, but this trip is really excellent value, so unless you are thinking of camping or travelling here in the green season (December-May when prices are much lower), this trip will be hard to beat.
When you combine this safari with 3 days to see the stunning Victoria Falls and enjoy the many activities you can do here, this becomes an African holiday which many travellers will just love.
