Short Description

Explore Zambia’s top premier destinations of South Luangwa and Livingstone, staying at some hidden gems of the area.

In South Luangwa the itinerary takes you on a true wilderness experience with a couple of nights bush camping – the ideal way to really get intimate with nature! This is sandwiched by nights at two permanent camps in the exclusive and game rich Nsefu Sector of the Luangwa. Then go onto Livingstone and continue with this isolation on an island off the majestic Zambezi River. So whether you are seeking a romantic getaway with your loved one or simply wanting to enjoy the perfect remoteness of Zambia, this safari is for you.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Itinerary

Day 1: Tena Tena Camp

On arrival at Lusaka International Airport a representative from Robin Pope Safaris will meet and assist you with immigration and customs clearing plus checking in for your Mfuwe bound flight. The flight varies between an hour and a quarter and an hour and three quarters, depending on size of aircraft used. Once at Mfuwe, a guide from Tena Tena will meet you and drive you to camp. The drive to camp is approximately an 1 hour and a half through colourful local scenes of villages, agriculture as well as bush; but may be more depending on what exciting sightings you have along the way.

Tena Tena is a remote and small camp which lies within the National Park and enjoys a stunning location on a sweeping bend of the Luangwa River. A grove of mahogany trees shade the large custom-made tents. From the thatched dining room and bar, guests can watch the elephants, hippo and antelope on the riverbank. Tena has 5 tents, each with a dressing room, open air bathroom and private verandah that overlooks the river. Most meals are taken under the shade of a huge Mahogany tree in the centre of the camp. On arrival you will be shown to your tent and then lunch will be served followed by a siesta and then tea before the afternoon and evening game drive.

Day 2: Tena Tena Camp

A full day to of safari activities, totally flexible to your interests.

Day 3: Luangwa Bush Camp

Up at sunrise for breakfast and then the morning walk to the first bush camp. Situated in a secluded area of the Nsefu sector the camp is simple and “bush”. Arriving in time for a leisurely lunch followed by a siesta and an afternoon walk will follow tea and then back to camp for sundowners and dinner around the camp fire.

Day 4: Luangwa Bush Camp

The day is spent walking in the game rich area of the Luangwa riverine habitat, with ebony groves, many lagoons and of course the Luangwa River itself. During your morning walk the camp may be moved to a second site and lunch will be waiting for you on arrival, alternatively you and your guide may decide to have a picnic lunch en route. The day is flexible and your guide will discuss options to suit you and any other guests.

Day 5: Nsefu Camp

Following a relaxed breakfast you will walk out of camp and head towards Nsefu Camp, stopping for tea and cake along the way and arriving in time for lunch. The camp is on a sweeping bend of the river. Nsefu was the first game camp in Zambia and dates back to the early fifties. The Nsefu Sector was recognised then as a phenomenal area and it still is. Robin Pope Safaris own the only two camps in this sector of the Park. There are six round rondavels with luxurious en suite facilities and each room has a clear view of the river through large windows and from the new wooden verandahs. On arrival you will be shown to your rondavel and then lunch will be served followed by a well-deserved siesta before the afternoon and evening game drive.

Day 6: Sindabezi

Today (usually in the morning) you will take a flight transfer onto Livingstone via Lusaka. On arrival you will be met and transferred to Tongabezi Lodge and onward transfer to Sindabezi Island, a true remote treasure.

Day 7: Sindabezi

There is a wide range of activities on offer at Sindabezi including fishing, canoe trips on the river, game drives in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. For the more adventurous, Livingstone boasts a whole host of adrenaline filled activities including whitewater rafting, bungee jumping and microlighting. Or you may just wish to rest in camp and enjoy the spectacular scenery and peaceful atmosphere. The day will end with a relaxed dinner served either in the main dining area or as a private meal outside of your room.
