Walking Safaris in the South Luangwa

Isabel and Matt are here to help give you the inside track.

Think walking safari, think Zambia, or more specifically South Luangwa - still undoubtedly the best place to go for the most authentic and memorable experience.

Embark on an exhilarating journey - accompanied by expert guides of course - tracking animals on foot and getting up close and personal to them. So close in fact that you can almost touch them (while always maintaining a safe distance of course!).

Sometimes it's worth changing down a gear. Rather than race around in a 4x4 on safari, spend several days fully immersing yourself in the wilderness on a mobile walking safari in the South Luangwa National Park. Learn about the varieties of plant life, stop to appreciate remote landscapes and follow animal tracks to get close (but not too close) to the resident Big Five, with nights spent in a mobile tented camp. This is all about slowing down and taking time to appreciate quite how incredible the African bush really is.
