You’ll be greeted at Mfuwe International Airport by a Robin Pope Safari guide who will escort you to Nkwali Camp, a one-hour drive away, past lively, colourful villages and sweeping landscapes. Nkwali Camp is the perfect way to kick off your safari in Zambia, with fantastic views of the Luangwa River from your bedroom, complete with open air bathroom. On your first day in the African bush, you might want to simply soak up your surroundings over lunch or afternoon tea, or perhaps venture further for a thrilling night-time game drive.

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.

We’ll transfer you north to the exclusive Nsefu sector in the South Luangwa National Park, where one of Zambia's most historic camps is situated. Sited on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River, Nsefu has superb river views and overlooks a productive waterhole in this outstanding game-viewing area. A siesta might be in order before an exciting afternoon and evening game drive, where you’ll take in the rugged beauty of the South Luangwa.

After your stay in Nsefu, we’ll fly you back home from Mfuwe International Airport.
