WHAT’S THIS ADVENTURE ABOUT?
Join Darran and Julia for the holiday of a life time!
We limit the group to a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 adventurers. Loads of room to shoot and enjoy your special holiday. Plus we stay at fantastic high quality 4 Star lodges and Flatdogs Tented Safari Camp which offers outstanding staff service, comfort and food. This is a small group African bush adventure.
What makes South Luangwa National Park a great destination for a safari is the unparalleled variety of wildlife who visit and gather around the meandering river and its many oxbow lagoons. The park covers a vast area of 9,059 square kilometers, with much of the game concentrated along the valley floor. There is also the remote Muchinga escarpment, which acts as a physical barrier to many of the park’s animal species, and where species like the elusive hartebeest, sable and roan, among others, can be found if you explore that area with a guide who knows where to look.
But you don’t have to travel to the most remote areas of the park to see some amazing animal sights. As soon as you enter the park, you might face ten or more giant hippos wallowing in the river below the bridge; they seem to enjoy peeking curiously above the water’s surface. Expect some terrific photo-opportunities as enormous herds of elephants, some up to seventy strong, gather at the Luangwa River’s edge to quench their thirst and splash around. Also, impala and puku – the impala’s fluffier and cousin with a rich orange coat, are found throughout the park, not to mention prolific birdlife. There is simply too much to tell…
