Upon arrival in Lusaka, a small aircraft takes you to Mfuwe. Mfuwe is close to South Luangwe National Park, which is one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The concentration of animals around the Luangwa River is one of the highest in Africa.
Day 2 – 3
The Luangwa Valley offers its visitors an unsurpassed safari experience. You spend 3 nights at the Flatdogs Camp in the southern part of the National Park, right on the banks of the Luangwa River. In this area, the animal world has been protected for many years. Wild animals have almost lost their natural shy towards humans. Twice a day you go out into the National Park. In addition, you will have the opportunity to visit a local school, village and an anti-poaching base nearby.
Day 4 – 6
You will spend the next days and nights at the Chikoko Tree Camp and the Crocodile River Camp. Both camps are part of the authentic foot safari Remote Africa conducts in the South Luangwa National Park. Time seems to have stopped and the loneliness and sometimes uncanny sounds make these unique experiences a highlight of this trip.
The daily routine of the next days consists of a longer walk of about four hours’ duration in the early morning to avoid the heat of the day. After return to the camp during the late morning you can enjoy an extensive brunch. After an extensive siesta in the afternoon, you will depart on another walk through the park.
From Mfwuw you fly back to Lusaka and spend the night in a high-quality hotel.
Day 8 – 10
Early in the morning, a small aircraft takes you to the Liuwa Plain National Park in the far west of the country. You spend 3 nights at the King Lewanika Lodge (time & Tide/Norman Carr Safari) which opened mid-2017. The lodge was named after the king who proclaimed the national park to be a protected area in 1880.
The Liuwa Plain National Park offers extraordinary and unusual experiences to the experienced African traveller. The extensive area is deserted, and the extreme temperatures as well as the mostly rough terrain makes the national park something very special.
The area is also home to Lady Liuwa, the famous lioness, that starred in a documentary about this region. In addition to its famous lions, Liuwa hosts the second largest wildebeest migration in Africa, a healthy cheetah population, large hyena packs, wild dogs, numerous zebras, buffaloes, red hartebeest, lechwe antelopes as well as more than 300 bird species, which you will get to see and explore on several game drives during the next days.
