Safari Itinerary

DAY 1-2

South Luangwa National Park
From Lusaka, you will fly to Mfuwe. On arrival at the airstrip you will be met and transferred to camp. Kafunta River Lodge is a classic Zambian safari lodge, combining all the essentials for a great safari, including its spectacular location at the edge of the floodplain. Beyond the plain, lies the Luangwa River - one of the best game viewing areas in the magical South Luangwa National Park. During your time here, enjoy game drives and early morning walks. Afternoon game drives end with the amazing African sunset and a traditional sundowner drink, before continuing onto the night safari in search of nocturnal animals.


South Luangwa National Park
After an early breakfast, a game drive through the park takes you to your next camp set in a spectacular spot, far from any other camps. On arrival, enjoy lunch before heading out on a walking safari, giving you the chance to explore the bush and surroundings with your professional guide and armed park scout. Spend the night in an open-fronted chalet, on a high wooden platform with beautiful river views. Pure safari magic.

DAY 4-5

South Luangwa National Park
After an early breakfast, enjoy a game drive to your next camp. Three Rivers Camp, set at the confluence of the Luangwa, Kapamba and Lusangazi Rivers. This was the first camp to be established on the border of the Malama Chiefdom and the national park. Its location is spectacular! During your stay, enjoy game drives in the South Luangwa National Park, as well as bush walks around the camp area and along the riverbank. Encounter elephants, giraffe, waterbuck and perhaps the relatively rare roan antelope, as well as lions, leopards and wild dogs. Night drives are also available.

DAY 6-8

South Luangwa National Park
After an early breakfast, head back to Kafunta River Lodge to enjoy your final 3 nights. During your time enjoy game drives and early morning walks, or simply relax and enjoy wildlife watching from the extensive decks with views of the floodplain beyond.
