Rustic Luxury in Zambia

Day 1

Fly To South Luangwa National Park

When you arrive in Lusaka, you will be met and helped to board a small plane flight to Mfuwe. Depending on the type of aircraft this will take around 2 hours. Here you meet your guide and drive through the village of Mfuwe to South Luangwa National Park. It's only about 45 minutes to the park, then you can enjoy a game drive en-route to your camp. After lunch, you'll head off for your first safari.

Day 2

South Luangwa

Based at Kaingo Camp, you can choose from game drives, bush walking and spending some time in the various hides which this camp is famous for. The game surrounding the camp is excellent - large herds of buffalo, zebra, eland, and in particular the Cookson's wildebeest (one of the few remaining herds) frequent the woodlands close to camp.
