10 Nights - Time + Tide and Tongabezi

Day 1

Upon arrival at Lusaka International Airport you will be met by our representative and assisted with baggage before being directed to the domestic check-in counters for your flight to Mfuwe in the South Luangwa, this flight will take just over an hour.

Day 1 – 3       

The journey from the airport to camp starts off among the local villages before entering the National Park itself.  From the entrance of the Park you will hug the Western bank of the Luangwa River for an hour or more heading north towards Mchenja Camp.  This trip takes you through some of the best game-viewing territory in Southern Africa and you will be amazed by what the South Luangwa has to offer even before arriving at camp.

Mchenja is one of the Luangwa’s best appointed camps.  The tents are custom designed, each has a roll top bath and stunning views of the river, there is also a small pool which offers some relief in the warmer months. Game-viewing throughout the Luangwa is excellent and very varied you will have ample opportunity to explore the area both on foot and in open 4x4 vehicles.

Day 3 – 5       

Your home for the next two days is the wildly luxurious Chinzombo Camp. 6 Villas all similar in style with an open plan structure in a beautiful position on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River. It is located 1 hour from the Mfuwe Airport by road and then private access by boat to the camp. Its contemporary design is something new for Zambia but surely is now the benchmark by which all other camps will be measured.  Relax and be spoilt! Take in all that Africa has to offer.
