Rustic Luxury in Zambia

10 days from £8100pp plus international flights.

Rustic Luxury safari in Zambia's South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi national parks.

  • 6 days in South Luangwa National Park.
  • 3 days in Lower Zambezi National Park.
  • Wildlife hides near Kaingo Camp.
  • Excellent wildlife viewing in both reserves.
  • Game drives, bush walks, boat safaris, canoeing, fishing.

A safari in two of Zambia's best parks with a mix of wild luxury, remote locations and incredible wildlife.

The Luangwa River snakes through South Luangwa National Park giving an attractive focus to this very pretty reserve. But not only is it beautiful here, the wildlife viewing is amongst the very best in Africa.

With a mix of day and night game drives and guided bush walks you will really get a wonderful chance to see some excellent game in your 6 days here. There is a great population of lion, elephant, hyena, antelope, hippo and hundreds of bird species. The night drives provide the nocturnal action with a good chance of seeing leopards, plus other more elusive creatures such as porcupines and the beautiful scops owl, to name but a few.

Your 3 days in Lower Zambezi give you a great place to relax by the river but to also continue to experience a fantastic big game safari. Being right on the banks of the mighty Zambezi means you could see large herds of buffalo, waterbuck lining the shores and even swimming elephants! And, something you won't have been able to do in South Luangwa, boating safaris are also an experience not to miss.

This safari uses three gorgeous camps. Two of these are bushcamps, which means you have a really authentic African wilderness experience. Just because they're rustic though, don't expect 'basic' in terms of food, service, guiding, comfort ... in fact the whole experience. This is luxury rustic!
