Tailor-Made Holiday

Zambia Walking Safari: Bushcamp Company

Bush camping on foot

10 days

from £4,550pp

This adventurous safari explores Zambia’s iconic South Luangwa National Park. See the magnificent wildlife this area has to offer whilst staying in exclusive bushcamps in the remote south, as well as the award winning Mfuwe Lodge.

  • South Luangwa National Park is home to the walking safari 
  • Stay in intimate bushcamps offering a remote bush experience whilst still offering some luxury 
  • Experience an authentic walking safari, or explore by game drives in possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa


Set out from secluded, intimate camps by vehicle or on foot for an unrivalled wildlife experience in one of the last wilderness regions of Africa – the very place where the African walking safari was pioneered.

The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa, covering a vast area through which the meandering Luangwa River runs. The oxbow lagoons, woodland and plains of the valley host huge concentrations of game - including elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, giraffe, hippo - and over 450 species of birds.

For an extended holiday, you could visit the powerful and spectacular Victoria Falls, or relax by the crystal clear waters of Lake Malawi, both of which are easily accessible.

Jackie Devereux, Travel Expert

"Every part of our trip was the highlight and it is not possible for us to point out just one thing, event or place."

"However, we received a magnificent surprise of a helicopter ride between camps in Botswana which meant a flight over the delta and an opportunity to see the delta and how it is formed. It was a wonderful surprise organised by Jackie and we were both absolutely overjoyed with the opportunity. I do not believe that there was more that could have been done as we had a magnificent trip."

"Jackie was excellent- she listened and was very knowledgeable."
