    South Luangwa is synonymous with walking safaris, infact, this sizable national park is the birthplace of one of the most thrilling ways to see big game in the wild. Leaving the 4x4 game-drive vehicle at camp, you set out on foot with your guide and an armed national park ranger to walk among elephants, antelope, zebra and even the occasional predator, always maintaining a safe and respectful distance from these magnificent animals.

    Explore some of the best birding in the world. With over 400 recorded species, birdwatching in South Luangwa is exceptional. The end of the dry season brings hundreds of water birds to the Luangwa River, from yellow billed storks to ponderous pelicans, striking saddle billed storks, stately goliath heron and elegant crowned cranes
