This 7-night walking safari offers a unique wilderness experience that incorporates excellent guiding and hosting in Zambia’s unspoilt South and North Luangwa National Parks. The programme is aimed at safari-enthusiasts looking for an uninhibited Zambian safari guided by passionate and knowledgeable professionals with decades of experience in this splendid part of Africa. Start your tour at family-run Tafika Camp, nestled on the banks of the Luangwa River, where you sleep in reed-and-thatch chalets under the shade of giant sausage trees. Split your safari time between fulfilling morning walks and evening game drives, with the opportunity for mountain biking and microlight flights.
Your next stop is Mwaleshi Camp, one of Tafika’s smaller sister camps located in the remote north of the park not far from the confluence of the Mwaleshi and Luangwa rivers. Safaris here are exclusively conducted on foot in the form of twice-daily walking safaris accompanied by the same reliable team of professionals. The untouched northern region of the park is even more remote and here you are almost guaranteed not to see another soul besides your walking crew and the convivial staff which work together to make your stay at Mwaleshi Camp a most memorable one. Thanks to the availability of a vehicle you can explore further afield – your guide able to drive the crew to a particular place to begin walking. A day trip by 4x4 to the Mwaleshi Falls located upstream of the camp is also possible and away from the teeming plains and woodlands, you can swim in the clear, safe waters of the river.
