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.
