You will be guided by a top local safari guide, who has guided in all the areas listed in the itinerary above for many years, knows the different habitats and the wildlife found in them. Your safari guide has the passion to share his vast knowledge about the wildlife and culture of Zambia with all his guests.

There is an opportunity for you to visit one of the local villages and learn about the local culture and traditions at Kawaza cultural village in Mfuwe the South Luangwa National Park.

On arrival at Lusaka Airport, our representative will pick you up and transfer you to Palmwood Lodge, where you will overnight for 1 nights for you to connect to Kafue National Park on the following day.

Day 1 to Day 2 – Palmwood Lodge

Established in 1988, this lush oasis began as a family owned home with 38 rooms – the lodge has since been under the same ownership. Eighteen years later, Palmwood continues to exist with exponential growth, expanding to reach to guests from both within Zambia and all over the world. Only a 26 minute drive from Kenneth Kaunda International Airport, visitors enjoy Palmwood Lodge’s hospitality, personalized service and exquisite atmosphere, taking them to a paradise far away from life at home.

An oasis within the busy Zambian capital, Lusaka, this beautiful lodge makes it easy to escape the noise. Though Palmwood is centrally located, 5 hectares of lush garden, different tree types and exotic flowers makes this easy to forget.

With our additional amenities aiming to make your stay that much more relaxing, we are positive you will get the ultimate Zambian countryside experience you deserve.

Brief notes about Kafue National Park

Found in the centre of western Zambia, Kafue National Park is the oldest and largest of Zambia’s national parks. It covers a massive 22,400 km2.

First established as a National Park in the 1950’s by the legendary Norman Carr, Kafue is one of the largest national parks in the whole of Africa. Despite its size and prominent location only two hours drive from Livingstone, it remains little-known and largely unexplored with vast tracts of its virgin bush still untouched. Thanks to its size and variety of habitat types the Kafue holds a fantastic diversity of wildlife.

In recent years the Park has seen a well-managed growth in the number of Safari Camps and Lodges that operate in and around the Park. This new interest has brought with it more visitors and investment to the area, notably in infrastructure with a number of well-graded roads and airstrips.

As a consequence of the increasing interest and benefits in terms of investment this brings, the wildlife is beginning to enjoy an increased level of protection by the Zambian Wildlife Authority (ZAWA), always aided and supported by the operators in and adjoining the park.

Day 2 to Day 4 - Mukambi Safari Lodge in Kafue National Park

Spend a night in the wild in our spacious family chalets along the Kafue River or bring your own camping gear. Enjoy a day of fishing or simply relax with an evening boat cruise while watching the beautiful sunset over the Kafue River. Indulge in our delicious meals made with the best ingredients or cook your catch of freshly caught fish from the Kafue River. Go game viewing in our specialised safari vehicles or take a walking safari to see a vast range of wild animals in the Kafue National Park. Keep powered up at the lodge with solar power and backup generators.

Experience an opportunity to appreciate the great variety of wildlife, with a morning or night drive in our specially customized safari vehicle and knowledgeable guides. Boat safari or walking safari facilities are also available.

Brief notes about South Luangwa National Park

For most visitors, South Luangwa National Park is by far the most practical park to visit in the valley. This is Zambia’s premier wildlife park, with superb wildlife and many excellent camps. This is where the now famous walking safaris started from over 60 years ago and this unique African destination retains some of the finest world-class safari guides.

There are many contenders for the title of Africa's best game park. The Serengeti, Amboseli, Ngorongoro Crater, Etosha, Kruger, Moremi and Mana Pools would certainly be high on the list. South Luangwa has a better claim than most. Some of these other areas will match its phenomenally high game densities. Many others – the lesser known of Africa's parks – will have equally few visitors. One or two also allow night drives, which open up a different, nocturnal world to view, allowing leopards to be commonly seen and even watched whilst hunting.

However, few have South Luangwa's high quality of guiding together with its remarkable wildlife spectacles, day and night, in the isolation of a true wilderness. These elements, perhaps, are how the contenders ought to be judged, and on these the South Luangwa Park comes out around the top of the list.

Day 4 to Day 6, Luangwa River Camp in South Luangwa

The South Luangwa National Park marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, one of the last remaining unspoilt wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa.

It is through this that the great meandering Luangwa river runs, with its ox bow lagoons, riverine supported woodlands and large plains, all of which play host to huge concentrations of game including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo and over 450 species of birds.

Luangwa River Camp sits nestled under an ancient ebony grove on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking the game rich area known as the Luangwa Wafwa.

This small and intimate camp with just five bush suites, along with its setting and location creates a real “wow” factor and a romantic feeling simply flows through the camp.

Accommodation in a chalet
