Remote Africa Safaris

Discover South Luangwa and the amazing wildlife.

9 days from £5700pp plus international flights.

A Remote Africa Safaris wildlife and wilderness experience in South Luangwa.

  • Exciting South Luangwa NP safari using Remote Africa Safaris
  • 3 high quality camps in the quiet north of the park
  • Game drives, bush walks, mountain biking and ...
  • Night drives to experience the bush after dark

Owners of Remote Africa Safaris, John and Carol Coppinger, have their base and home at Tafika Camp in South Luangwa. They started the company in 1995, but John guided in Luangwa Valley for many years before this. They have three camps in South Luangwa (Tafika, Crocodile Camp and Chikoko Tree camp) and offer high quality walking and game drive safaris, plus mountain biking. They employ about 90 people from the local village of Mkasanga, which they also back with help for the school and clinic via their charitable fund. They also run Mwaleshi Camp in North Luangwa.

This safari is a great combination of wildlife game drives, walking safaris, plus other activities such as cultural visits and possibly a bit of adventure on mountain bikes, viewing wildlife from specially sited hides and night drives to experience the nocturnal life of the African bush.

The area of South Luangwa their camps are in is quite far north, so the name Remote Africa fits well. You really should have this place more or less to yourself, and the wildlife here is superb including great leopard sightings being relatively common.

Note: This is just one idea using Remote Africa Safaris camps, but bear in mind that we can make a trip of any length or combination of these or other camps to suit you. Minimum age 12 years for walking safaris.
