A great Green Season safari idea, for when costs are low, and the bush is full of life.
This 7 day safari combines Luangwa River Camp, Nsefu and Nkwali, and Camps.
"The Luangwa Valley is at its most dramatic in the Emerald Season, with the Luangwa River now flowing over into the brimming lagoons. Boating into these lagoons, flooded ebony groves and flowing channels gives you a view of the Valley which is normally inaccessible during this season". Take a look at further photos and details.
The Luangwa River is one of the last remaining major rivers in Africa, and even in the world, that has not been damned for hydropower. This vast river still annually rises, floods into lagoons and channels, changes course and resulting in new lagoons and in so doing creates an rich flood plain river system. To be in the heart of the park, at peak flood time, staying at the first camp built in Zambia (1951) with the river being your only access, is quite an experience.
At Luangwa River Camp and Nkwali you will drive, walk and boat. Most of the game in this area remains resident all year and so the game viewing is always excellent and hopefully you will see wild dog as it is the season for our top viewing season for the dogs. A relaxed boat up or down the Luangwa River will be your transfer to and from Nsefu, bird watching and game viewing on the way.
At Nsefu the emphasis will be on exploring the flooded ebony groves and lagoon systems, flowing channels and tributaries by boat. There will also be excellent walking, including a boat and walking combination to reach one of southern Africa's largest yellow billed stork colonies in full action.
