The South Luangwa valley is vast,
remote and home to a truly impressive
variety of flora and fauna. The three
intimate camps on this safari lie next
to the magnificent Luangwa river
with its large meanders and countless
tributaries. The water acts as a magnet
for animal and birdlife, especially during
the dry season. The contrasting camps
offer 4x4 safari drives, including very
productive night drives and some of the
best walking Africa has to offer. Wildlife
viewing from the mess tents is also
common as the animal life is so prolific.
Arrive and connect with an onward flight to Mfuwe
in the South Luangwa valley. Transfer to Nkwali for
2 nights. Situated on Robin Pope Safaris’ private
