10 DAY ZAMBIAN ADVENTURE

Where: South Luangwa & Lower Zambezi - Zambia
Cost: FROMUSD6,000pp not including international flights

Days 1-3: Arrive Kenneth Kaunda International Airport and make your way to Domestic Departures for your one hour flight to Mfuwe, the gateway to the South Luangwa On arrival in Mfuwe you will be met by a representative of Flatdogs Camp and transferred (45 minutes) to the Camp. Flatdogs is set on the Luangwa River, very close to the main access point to the South Luangwa National Park. The South Luangwa is Zambia’s premier Park and famed for its big game – notably leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo giraffe and many antelope species. Enjoy 3 days of day and night driving from Flatdogs. The game around the Flatdogs area of the Park has been well protected for decades and is therefore habituated to vehicles – making it a great place to get a “big-game fix” before heading deeper in to the Park.

Days 4-6: Today you will head North, deep in to the South Luangwa NP to a much more remote area, without roads to start your walking safari adventure. Walking safaris were pioneered in the Luangwa in the 1950s and remain very popular to this day. Remote Africa Safaris’ Chikoko Trails provide a wonderfully authentic experience staying in small but comfortable bush camps that accommodate a maximum of 6 guests at a time. Your time will be spent between two camps and all the walks will be led by an excellent guide with an armed escort scout. Walking is a fantastic way to explore the bush!



Days 7-10:Transfer from the Chikoko Trails back to Mfuwe Airport for your scheduled flight back to Lusaka On arrival in Lusaka you will be met by a representative of Kanyemba Lodge for your transfer down to the Lower Zambezi – about 3.5hrs. Once you are clear of Lusaka you enter rural Zambia, cross the Kafue River and then descend the Zambezi Plateau to Kanyemba Camp. Kanyemba is a delightful camp set right on the Zambezi River. The Zambezi River is significantly larger than the Luangwa and is navigable by boat and canoe and hence using the river as a means of game-viewing is much more of a feature here although drives, night drives and walks are available. Another attraction available is trying your hand catching Tiger Fish for which the Zambezi is famed and reputed to be the hardest fighting fresh water fish in the world. Kanyemba has a small bush camp on an Island in the Zambezi and you will have the option to spend a night or two there.



Day 11: Road transfer back to Lusaka in order to catch your international flight out.
