Zamibian Bush Experience Map

This is a great-value safari for those who want to experience the real Zambia. The Luangwa Valley is renowned for its fantastic wildlife viewing, great accommodation and fantastic standards of guiding. During the trip you’ll stay in remote locations, allowing you to enjoy the silence of the African bush and sounds of the wilderness; a real back to nature wildlife experience. As well as open-vehicle game drives, we’ve included a number of walking safaris. This is the very essence of a Luangwa experience and there’s plenty of opportunity to explore the bush on foot, observing the animals’ undisturbed behaviour. Your accommodation is rustic and in keeping with the local environment, but with many comforts associated with an African safari, including hot showers, a terrace with a view and a great area to swap evening stories of the wildlife you’ve seen during your morning and evening safaris!

Zambian Bush Experience Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Kafunta Lodge Dinner

This is a great-value safari for those who want to experience the real Zambia. The Luangwa Valley is renowned for its fantastic wildlife viewing, great accommodation and fantastic standards of guiding. During the trip you’ll stay in remote locations, allowing you to enjoy the silence of the African bush and sounds of the wilderness; a real back to nature wildlife experience. As well as open-vehicle game drives, we’ve included a number of walking safaris. This is the very
essence of a Luangwa experience and there’s plenty of opportunity to explore the bush on foot, observing the animals’ undisturbed behaviour. Your accommodation is rustic and in keeping with the local environment, but with many comforts associated with an African safari, including hot showers, a terrace with a view and a great area to swap evening stories of the wildlife you’ve seen during your morning and evening safaris!


Day 2: South Luangwa National Park Lodge Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This morning, you’re up early for a morning game drive. We use open four-wheel drive vehicles to maximize your
safari experience.
Kafunta River Lodge enjoys the unique situation of having its own pontoon just five minutes from the lodge. The
adventurous crossing takes you into more remote areas of the park, affording you a quieter safari experience and
more time to spend in solitude with the wildlife. This will enhance your experience immensely, and if you’re a
keen photographer, the area will allow you more time to frame your perfect shot!
After your morning game drive, you’ll head back to the lodge for an al-fresco lunch and time to relax – maybe with
an afternoon dip in the hot spring. This afternoon head out once again for an afternoon and evening game drive.
Night drives are one of the highlights of the Luangwa Valley; it is bustling with predators and the best time to see
them in action is during those first few hours of darkness.


Day 3: Island Bush Camp Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

During the morning of day four, you head out for an early morning game drive. After a couple of hours to relax, you’ll transfer to Island Bush Camp for the second part of your adventure. The journey to the camp takes about two hours, passing spectacular scenery en-route – it’s almost a mini game drive in its own right! Island Bush Camp’s trademark is its rustic
appeal – yet in your grass and reed hut, you’ll experience the modern comforts of an African camp with hot showers and a
private balcony overlooking the Luangwa River. This small, personalised camp nestles under the shade of mahogany
trees, which is perfect for lazy days, in between morning and afternoon safaris. The camp is located in a remote, gamerich
area in the south of the park. It’s this isolation that makes it a very special experience, and makes walking safaris
possible – an exhilarating wildlife experience. Although animals are usually spotted on walking safaris, the goal is not
to get as close as possible to wildlife, but rather to observe their undisturbed behaviour. You’ll be in the company of skilled safari guides who’ll tell you all about the natural environment as you walk, and experience the thrill of the unspoiled African bush. After your first walking safari this afternoon, you’ll come back to camp to chat to your fellow travellers and enjoy a
candle-lit dinner under the stars, looking forward to two more walking safaris tomorrow!


Day 4: Island Bush Camp Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

See day 3 for Itinerary


Day 5: Village visits Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

A morning bush walk takes you to discover yet more of the park, before a visit to nearby villages.
The local villages are about 10 km away from Island Bush Camp, home to the Kuanda people. These people are
friendly and welcoming, keen to share their lifestyle and traditions. You’ll be accompanied by a local guide, who
will advise about local courtesy when you’re at the local school and meeting the village elders. The village’s
women will also show you some traditional dancing.


Day 6: Kafunta River Lodge Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This morning you’ll head out on a walking safari, before transferring back to Kafunta River Lodge for a final game
drive and night around the bushfire, swapping stories of a Zambian adventure of a lifetime!


Day 7: Lusaka Camping Breakfast, Lunch

After an early morning game drive or walk, you’ll make the return journey to Lusaka for an overnight stay in
Zambia’s capital – Lusaka.
