5 nightsMOBILE CAMP IN THE SOUTH LUANGWA 

You’ll rise early in the morning to begin your walking safari, driving 90km north towards the Mupamadzi River. The mobile camp will already be set up for you, with comfortable beds and outdoor showers so you feel closer to nature. You’ll have lunch prepared for you and you can explore your surroundings before a few sundowners under the stars. The next morning it’ll be another early start for a sunrise walk in the South Luangwa. Your guide will show you the diverse wildlife that dwells here, whether it’s buffaloes or birds, ants or lions, so you can learn the secrets of the bush.

The mobile camp will have been moved to the next spot after your walk and lunch will again be prepared for you. You’ll spend two nights at the second camp, exploring the wild bush on foot and spotting fascinating creatures, from yellow-billed storks to hippos, lilac breasted rollers to elephants. The final camp is located further down the Mupamadzi River, which will be moved for you while you explore more of the South Luangwa on foot.
