Many people often refer to the South Luangwa as one of the
greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, with the Luangwa River
being one of the most intact major river systems in Africa and is
the life blood of the park's 9050km2.
With direct flights from Lusaka, the South Luangwa National Park
is a great place to start your safari holiday in Zambia and one can
easily spend a week or more combining a stay in many of the small,
intimate bushcamps that are dotted along the Luangwa River and many
of the lagoons in the area. We often recommend starting off
spending a few nights in one of the slightly larger lodges around
the Mfuwe area where the game is prolific and the focus is mainly
on game drives, before venturing out further into the park and
staying in a combination of two or three of the smaller more rustic
camps where the focus is more on walking.
Led by highly experienced guides and accompanied by armed
scouts, a walking safari is the best way to discover the diversity
and secrets of the African bush, and Original Travel only uses the
very best guides and camps.
If you are after some beach relaxation at the end of your safari
holiday, then we recommend you head for the serene lake shores of
Malawi where you will find beautiful and authentic hotels in
keeping with your safari in Zambia.
