8 Days Zambian Explorer Safari

8 Days Zambian Explorer Safari

The 8 Days Zambian Explorer Safari allows us to make use of small deluxe seasonal bush camps in the remote South Luangwa to explore and discover the region's big game and diverse wildlife. This is one of our most highly recommended safaris in Africa. The South Luangwa National park offers excellent game viewing in a game-rich region while still being easy to access.

Highlights

  • The South Luangwa National Park is home to rich and beautiful wildlife, making it the best place to experience the safari bush walk it boasts.
  • The wildlife you will see there is rarer than other national parks, even better is the river that attracts so much wildlife to its waters - this is where most camps and lodges are found.
  • The Lower Zambezi National Park fetches its beauty, among other things from the mighty waters of the Zambezi River.

Day 3:Lechwe Plains Tented Camp, Lochinvar National Park, Zambia

Depart by private charter to the magnificent World Heritage Wetlands Site of Lochinvar National Park to Lechwe Plains Tented Camp. Each individual tent has all the comforts and privacy you require. From here you can explore the vast wetlands noted for thousands of the endemic Kafue Lechwe, Buffalo, Zebra, Wildebeest and Oribi graze the shoreline and surrounding grassy plains.

However the real drawcard is the birdlife; it's a birdwatcher's paradise with 428 recorded species ranging from the flamboyant Flamingo and Pelican through a boggling array of Waterfowl and waders to over 50 species of raptors. The sight of these huge flocks dipping and swooping in a continual wave over the water is not to be missed. Overnight at Lechwe Plains Tented Camp.
