Day 2: South Luangwa
After an early breakfast, you will be heading north to start your walking mobile which has become known as TheHE wilderness experience of the South Luangwa. Your drive is some 90kms to the Mupamadzi River along a bush road, through remote parts of the park. You arrive in camp for lunch around mid day. The camp is already set up for your arrival with wellequipped walk-in tents. The shower is under a tree and the toilet is a long drop with a wooden throne. Enjoy a relaxing siesta after lunch, before tea and going for a walk around camp in the afternoon, to return for sundowners and dinner in the open under the stars! Mobile Camp
Day 3 : Full Day in South Luangwa camp 2
Up at sunrise for the morning walk. The area is remote and wild, the terrain and habitats varied and the game shy and unused to man. From ant’s to buffalo, a bird’s nest to tracking a lion, you will learn the many facets of the bush. The mobile camp will be packed and moved to Camp 2 and lunch will be ready as the guests arrive late morning. Lunch, siesta and afternoon walk. Mobile Camp
Day 4 : Full Day in South Luangwa
Explore the area on foot – returning to the same campsite. Mobile Camp
Day 5&6 Full Day in South Luangwa Camp 3

Day 7 & 8 More days to explore the wilderness
There is a chance of moving the campsite during one of these days, depending on where the game is. Mobile Camp
Day 9: Luangwa River to Tena Tena
After an early breakfast, transfer to the Luangwa River crossing point opposite Tena Tena. This drive is enjoyed as an extended game drive often making the most of the experience and having a packed lunch on the way. Tena Tena staff will meet and boat the party across the river, and then a 40 minute drive to Tena Tena camp. This remote small camp lies within the national park on a long straight stretch of the river littered with hippo. On arrival you will be shown to your tent and enjoy a well-earned siesta before afternoon tea and the opportunity to rest those weary legs and enjoy seeing the wildlife from the seats of a game viewer – walking is also an option if you would prefer. Tena Tena.

Blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, an abundance of wildlife, huge water bodies and vast open spaces, Zambia offers unforgettable holidays exploring the real Africa. Zambia is regarded as one of the most beautiful, friendly, diverse and unspoilt countries on the entire African continent. Aside from the majestic Victoria Falls, Zambia has more natural water resources than any other southern African country, including a myriad of other falls dotted across the country, not to mention the famous Zambezi River. The many National Parks offer great opportunities for observing Africa’s plains game and their attendant predators, whilst bustling urban areas offer a taste of eclectic Zambian culture. Discover the wealth of stunning destinations this friendly country has to offer. Not to be missed are the spectacular views of the magnificent Victoria Falls, followed by a safari.
Zambia’s game reserves provide pristine sanctuary to a wide variety of wildlife, and boast some of the best game viewing opportunities in the world. From the North and South Parks on the hippo and croc-infested Luangwa River, to the wide expanse of the Lower Zambezi, the vast and little-explored Kafue.
As if all the lakes and waterfalls weren’t enough, Zambia is also home to the magnificent Zambezi River as well as the Luangwa and Kafue river systems, offering great fishing opportunities, adventure activities and canoeing safaris. These are some of the most unspoilt and best-protected rivers on the continent and are home to much of Zambia’s wildlife.
Whether it’s the history and sheer size of Lake Tanganyika (the world’s longest lake) that draws you, getting off the beaten track at Lake Mweru, or taking in the secluded beach holiday atmosphere that can be found on the banks of Lake Kariba.
While Victoria Falls, not surprisingly, tends to steal the limelight, Zambia has an array of wonderful waterfalls, cascades, rapids, cataracts and flumes on the many rich waterways that dissect the country.
