Arrive in Lusaka and fly to Mfuwe where you will take either a light aircraft or road transfer to Tafika near the Nsefu Sector in the South Luangwa on the Luangwa River. Tafika Lodge is located just outside the Nsefu Sector of the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia and offers some of the finest leopard sightings in Zambia. Besides leopard, there are other great game sightings to be experienced on safari activities at this family-friendly camp. There are many other exciting activities to enjoy, like daily microlight flights, mountain bike safaris, walks and visits to the Mkasanga Village. The camp consists of six comfortable and spacious en-suite chalets, each with its own outdoor shower, underneath giant leadwood trees. Since there is only space for six couples the camp offers a truly intimate experience.
You can either fly back to Lusaka and then on to the Lower Zambezi from there or take a direct flight from Tafika. Old Mondoro is also a small camp with only four rooms making it the smallest camp in the Lower Zambezi. The reserve is situated on the Zambezi River in the South of the country and is relatively new. The owners of Old Mondoro, the Cumings Family, brought the first guests to the park in 1990 and access is still heavily controlled resulting in very little human activity and one of Africa’s finest wildlife experiences. Besides the day and night game drives, this is also a great area for walking and visitors can also enjoy canoe and boating safaris on the river.
You’ll fly to Lusaka and then on to Kafue National Park and Shumba camp. Another small and intimate camp with six luxury tented chalets in a very remote area of the country. This is the most luxurious camp on the itinerary and you are guaranteed a bit of pampering whilst you end your safari in Zambia in true Wilderness Safaris style.
One of the focuses here is on the brilliant lion viewing and the camp is central to the territories of a number of prides. The lions are well fed by the great herds of puku, lechwe, hartebeest, oribi, buffalo, and wildebeest that come to the open plains to take advantage of the grazing. Activities here include day and night drives as well as seasonal boating when the plains are covered in water. Perhaps the highlight of any visit to the Busanga plains is the hot air balloon rides offered here. There is nowhere else in Zambia where this is possible and drifting silently over the plains in a unique way to enjoy the landscape and wildlife.
Day 10: Departure
There is one last spot of game viewing on your way to the airstrip for you flight back to Lusaka and home, or you can fly to Livingstone and add a few days in the Victoria Falls area to conclude your trip.
