Trip Highlights

  • Leave the modern world behind and escape into a landscape where you won’t see more than a handful of people or vehicles for 11 days
  • Soak up the atmosphere of an old-world expedition with a four-day walk through South Luangwa National Park, following the curves of the Mupamadzi River and the antics of its resident herds
  • Tailor four days of remote adventure in North Luangwa National Park, where a luxury camp provides the base for day trips into a wilderness that is inaccessible to vehicles
  • Feel the allure of nature with mobile camps in the midst of the national parks, the crackle of the campfire combined with the trumpeted sounds of elephants and the rustle of grazing herds
  • Complement the walks with a day of boat safari along the Luangwa River and a few short game drives that connect you to spectacular trail heads
  • Encounter many of Africa’s most revered animals on the walks, with skilled trackers bringing you stunning moments with elephants, buffalos, giraffes, hippos, and a fabulous variety of antelopes
  • Share the same land of these majestic mammals and enter their world, learning how to respect the rhythm of nature and the clues of the wild
  • A walking safari really opens your senses to the complexity and exhaustive detail of Africa, giving you a perspective that very few people have ever had the chance to experience
