BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
This itinerary, making use of the two bush camps proposed, only operates between mid June and late October.
However, we can absolutely offer this trip between late April and late December, making use of alternative bush camps
Note that heavy rains fall from January to March and all camps are closed
The dry season falls between late June and late October, during which time there is little to no rain and warm daytime temperatures.
LODGES AND CAMPS
Mfuwe Lodge is the perfect kick-off to a South Luangwa safari. It is located within easy driving distance of the airport, thereby avoiding long, late transfers to the more remote camps.
Chindeni bush camp is located on the edge of an oxbox lagoon in a remote section of the South Luangwa National Park. Here, four opulent tents, each with a large private deck, overlook the lagoon. Spacious en suite bathrooms and four-poster beds complete the camp’s understated luxury.
Chamilandu bush camp was recently voted #2 in the Conde Nast Readers’ Choice of resorts and safari camps in Africa. Three raised ‘treehouse’ chalets overlook the Luangwa River, a prime game viewing location. In addition, a viewing hide overlooks one of many oxbow lagoons near the lodge.
YOU SHOULD KNOW
South Luangwa National Park is a malaria endemic area. We therefore recommend that visitors explore appropriate malaria prevention measures.
High daytime temperatures and dusty conditions should be expected in September and October, since this is the end of the dry season.
