  • Explore South Luangwa National Park

    South Luangwa is possibly Africa’s greatest walking destination with the famous walking safaris originating here. The Park is all about exploring the bush on foot accompanied by professional guides. Puku Ridge Camp is built on a hillside, providing stunning vistas of the floodplain and the wildlife that frequents it.
    Activities include day & night drives and guided walking
  • Abundant wildlife

    The Luangwa Valley’s main predators are lion, leopard, spotted hyena and the wild dog. Of these, lion are probably the most common, and their large prides are often easily spotted. Elephant and buffalo occur in herds hundreds strong.

    Named the Valley of the Leopard, South Luangwa is famous for its leopards.  The incredibly diverse landscapes range from dense forests of mopane trees and the leopard’s favourite sausage trees. South Luangwa has a top reputation as a prime park for leopard. This is largely because leopard hunt nocturnally, and South Luangwa is one of Africa’s few national parks to allow spotlight night drives.

    Wild dog sightings have been becoming much more common in recent years. They’re now regularly seen, especially around February to May.

  • The Wildlife of Lower Zambezi National Park

    The scenery in Lower Zambezi is magnificent, centred on the mighty Zambezi River. The first glimpse of this valley with the majestic river and its surroundings will leave you in awe. The area contains excellent densities of wildlife, notably elephants, lions, leopards, spotted hyenas, hippos and crocodiles. There are also good chances for interaction with wild-dogs.

    Activities include : day and night vehicle safaris, walking safaris, motorboat safaris and canoe safaris.

    Amanzi Camp is situated directly on the banks of the Zambezi River. The main area offers stunning views of the mosaic of islands that are home to a group of majestic elephant bulls. The main area leads down to the pool deck which sits just above the Zambezi River.

  • BEST TIME TO VISIT ZAMBIA

    The rains in Zambia come mostly in December, January, February and March.

    By April and May most of the rain has faded away, leaving a landscape that’s still green, but starting to dry out. Nighttime temperatures start to drop, especially in higher and more southerly locations.

    In June, July and August the nights have become much cooler, but the days are clear and warm. Make sure you bring warm clothes to wrap up if you’re out at night, as some nights get very cold! Most of Zambia’s small ‘walking bushcamps’ open at the start of June, when the roads have dried out sufficiently to allow access. This is the start of the ‘peak season’ for these countries – with often cloudless days and continually increasing game sightings.

    Into September and October the temperatures climb: the lower-lying rift valleys – Lower Zambezi, Mana Pools and Luangwa Valley – can get very hot in October. However, you’ll see some superb game as the animals concentrate around the limited water sources.

    November is variable; it can be hot and dry like October, or it can see the season’s first downpours. Often it’s a very interesting month as you can see both patterns on successive days.
