Robin Pope's River Journeys, ZambiaFrom: 22nd January 2018 - 31st March 2019

River Journeys, 7 night safari, South Luangwa Valley, Zambia

This Robin Pope safari covers one of Zambia’s premier parks – South Luangwa. The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoiled wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa.

“The Luangwa Valley is at its most dramatic in the Emerald Season, with the Luangwa River now flowing over into the brimming lagoons. Boating into these lagoons, flooded ebony groves and flowing channels gives you a view of the Valley which is normally inaccessible during this season“.

The Luangwa River is one of the last remaining major rivers in Africa, and even in the world, that has not been damned for hydropower. This vast river still annually rises, floods into lagoons and channels, changes course and resulting in new lagoons and in so doing creates a rich flood plain river system. To be in the heart of the park, at peak flood time, staying at the first camp built in Zambia (Nsefu) with the river being your only access, is quite an experience.

You can explore a variety of areas with this safari, staying at three very different camps/lodges; Luangwa River Camp, Nsefu & Nkwali.

Activities on offer: walking, boating, game drives (day and night), Kawaza Village Tour, Tribal Textiles tour (for souvenirs), Chipembele Wildlife Orphanage visit.

For departures between 22 January and 31 March 2019, subject to availability, this 7 night safari costs £3,450 per person including:
