Day 1 - 2
Many people arrive for a safari in Africa with hopes and dreams about what they will see. It's impossible not to get excited by the thought of what awaits you in a world famous national park. But few people can predict the raw feeling of being on safari and coming face to face with a lion pride or elephant herd. In this pristine wilderness there is nothing but you and them to break the silence. Giraffe stand proud just meters from the safari truck, slowly judging you and then feeding from a tree branch. At first glance you might just see grassy savanna. But look carefully and the leopard reveals itself, then it accelerates into a clearing, chasing a young zebra. As you tuck into a sumptuous dinner, thinking the day is over, an elephant bull slowly crosses the river, its unmistakable shape even more impressive in the dusk light.
You'll be met at Lusaka International Airport and guided to your connecting flight to Mfuwe. This local flight will drop you directly into the African bush. Your first two nights are spent at a luxury chalet overlooking the Luangwa River. Using solar power and blending into its surroundings, there is nothing to interrupt the unforgettable sounds that pierce the air. A lion's roar, a hippo's wheeze-honk, then the early morning drumming of ground hornbill. Many others also provide their telltale sounds to nature's meandering soundtrack. Every chalet has its own wooden deck, offering a private vantage point over anything that comes to drink from the river. Each evening brings a new cast, from basking hippos to hunting crocodiles, elephants crossing, and vibrant, aquatic birds. Two days of game drives will explore the surrounding area as you immerse yourself in this unforgettable animal world. Then, back at the camp, enjoy a stunning outdoor bathtub with thrilling views of a pod of hippos.
