Day 3

South Luangwa - Kafunta River Lodge

South Luangwa is such a pretty park, so simply driving or walking around on your safari is a wonderful experience. Add to this the vast number of hippos, large numbers of elephants, a strong lion population, lots of leopards, and wild dogs, and you are sure to have encounters a-plenty. This is over and above the prolific birdlife, antelopes, zebra, giraffe, crocodiles... Your safari experience here in Luangwa should be utterly memorable.

Day 4

South Luangwa - Bushcamp

Today you are transferred from Kafunta, in the central area of South Luangwa, to Island Bushcamp in the south. Moving to a different camp not only gives you another area of this large reserve to explore, but also a different style of accommodation to enjoy. This is a tiny bushcamp composed of only 4 tents, very remote, but also very high quality. The camp is well known for walking safaris, which are excellent here, though game drives are also taken here too so you get the best of both worlds.
