Safari Adventure in South Luangwa – 8 Nights

From: $3,737.00

This 8-day safari adventure takes you to the stunningly beautiful South Luangwa National Park. This is one of Zambia’s premier reserves because of its exceptional game viewing and bird watching!

Description

Your 8-night safari adventure starts with a stay at Kafunta Lodge, an elegant bush camp crafted from natural materials. Kafunta has eight private and peaceful chalets, while it also has two luxury suites – each with a private viewing deck. You can enjoy superb wildlife viewing during your time here, either on a game drive or walking safari adventure. Immerse yourself in the lodge’s natural hot pool after a day out on safari, followed by a starlit dinner.

Next, we will move on to Island Bush Camp, a rustic lodge on the banks of the Luangwa River. The camp’s eight stilted chalets all overlook the river and have superb views of the surrounding wilderness. After a night here you will head to the newest camp in the Kafunta collection for two nights. Three Rivers Camp is a luxury tented camp in true ‘Out of Africa’ style. All tents have king-size four poster beds with mosquito nets and adjoining bathrooms. To round off your safari adventure, we return to Kafunta Lodge for the final two nights in beautiful wildnerness of South Luangwa National Park.
