7 Nights

4 Nights Tafika Main Camp, South Luangwa | 3 Nights Takwela Main Camp, North Luangwa

This safari tour promises an authentic and adventurous expedition to Zambia’s South and North Luangwa National Park.

The Explore Luangwa Safari package offers an 8-day adventure in two distinct regions of Zambia. You will get to experience game drives, guided walking safaris, cycling safaris, and cultural visits to the local village, all while discovering the unique landscapes of the area.

South Luangwa, Zambia

South Luangwa is renowned for its diverse wildlife population. You can expect to see a wide range of animals, including elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, and numerous antelope species. South Luangwa is famous for its walking safaris, allowing you to get up close and personal with the wildlife while accompanied by experienced guides. This immersive experience provides a deeper connection with nature. The park is one of the few places where you can enjoy thrilling night game drives. This allows for the opportunity to spot elusive nocturnal creatures such as leopards, hyenas, and servals. Bird enthusiasts will be delighted with the variety of bird species in the park. South Luangwa is a prime destination for birdwatching, with over 400 bird species, including raptors and colorful songbirds.

North Luangwa, Zambia

North Luangwa is less visited and more remote than its southern counterpart, offering a more exclusive and pristine wilderness experience. Just like in South Luangwa, North Luangwa is renowned for its walking safaris, which are led by expert guides who will take you through pristine and untouched landscapes. The park is famous for its large buffalo herds, which can number in the hundreds. Watching these massive herds is an incredible sight and a unique feature of North Luangwa. The park’s rugged terrain, deep valleys, and the Luangwa River itself provide a breathtaking backdrop for your adventure. It’s a place of raw, natural beauty. Due to its remoteness and lower visitor numbers, North Luangwa offers a more intimate and exclusive safari experience, allowing you to immerse yourself in the wilderness without the crowds.
