This fly-safari contains two of Zambia’s
major rivers - the Luangwa and Zambezi
- which attract large numbers of wildlife.

for leopards, lions, spotted hyenas and
wild dogs. Fly on to the Lower Zambezi
National Park, another hot spot for
wildlife, where boating and canoeing is
popular. Finish at Waterberry Lodge on
the edge of the Zambezi river, with a visit

Kasaka River Lodge is located on the banks of the Zambezi river in the Chiawa Game Management area, only 4km by road from the Lower Zambezi National Park. This is the only stretch on the 2,700 kilometre course of the Zambezi river where national parks are to be found on both banks of the river: the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia and the famed Mana Pools World Heritage Site in Zimbabwe. The river extends the length of the property and there are breathtaking views over the water with frequent sightings of buffaloes, elephants, hippos and crocodiles. The camp offers an authentic bush experience in a tranquil destination, well off the beaten track.
Kasaka has two wings to the camp: a cultivated 'tame' side with manicured gardens with a swimming pool and colourful indigenous plants; and a 'wild' side is set in a more natural bush environment and is connected to the lodge by...
The Luangwa River Camp lies nestled under an ancient ebony grove, overlooking the Wafwa Oxbow Lagoon on a quiet stretch of the Luangwa river. The entire camp is built on wooden platforms one to three metres high, so as to afford quality views over the river from wherever you are in camp. The infinity pools are an especially prominent feature; sunk into the main deck on two levels, a waterfall adjoins the two pools where you can relax and watch passing wildlife.
There are five individually styled brick and thatch Bush suites which are all built from local materials. Each suite features rechargeable electric lanterns, hairdryer sockets, hot and cold running water, twin sinks, a shower and a sunken bath. The bedroom and bathroom lead onto a private deck with excellent views over the river where you can choose to dine at night, should you wish.
Activities here are varied with day an...
Luwi Bush Camp is a seasonal camp nestled under mahogany trees, on the banks of a permanent lagoon of the Luwi sand river and consists of four thatched bamboo chalets. The rooms are simple yet comfortable with en-suite bathrooms and hot showers. There is a hippo filled lagoon close by and walking safaris from camp usually finish with sundowners at this spot. Brunch is taken in the shade of a huge old tree and dinner under the stars. This is a small and intimate camp situated deep in the Luangwa wilderness, lending the camp a rustic appeal and providing a truly African bush experience. Since there are very few roads in this area of the Park, the emphasis from Luwi is on...
