Shenton Safaris' Wild Luangwa
Shenton Safaris' Wild Luangwa OverviewOn this holiday you’ll get to stay at Shenton Safaris two lovely camps in South Luangwa National Park. There are also game viewing hides in strategic locations for close-up encounters. If you’re a keen photographer you won’t find a better Zambia trip than this.
Starting from Lusaka you’ll fly to Mfuwe, to be met and driven to the first of your camps, Kaingo. Relax after your journey and relish the laid back atmosphere and creature comforts of your new home. Chat with other guests in the open-sided lounge as you enjoy a chilled drink.
You have 3 full days at Kaingo, but you won’t find time hanging heavy. You’ll be busy with game drives, guided walks and night drives, immersing yourself in the wildlife of South Luangwa. There are two highly productive lion pries in the area and more than 10 leopard, so for big cat lovers, this is paradise. You’ll also be able to visit elephant and hippo hides near camp and observe the myriad bird species.
Your next camp is Mwamba Bush Camp, in a peaceful setting by two waterholes. With only three bungalows, this is an intimate, homely camp. While you’re here you must try out the wonderful sundowner spot at the top of a large termite mound! The game here is plentiful. You can expect to see large herds of buffalo, zebra, eland and Cookson’s wildebeest, rarely seen in other locations in South Luangwa. Look out, too for lion and leopard. While in camp, you are almost certain to view elephants at the waterholes.
At both camps you’ll be offered three game-viewing activities per day, in the early morning, at midday and late afternoon. All are optional and there’s no pressure to take part so if you feel like kicking back, spending an afternoon lazing n your hammock, that’s fine. This is a holiday, after all!
This is a seasonal safari and can be taken from June to October. This is a tailor-made holiday, so the number of nights at each camp can be varied as you wish, to create your perfect itinerary.
