Walk on the Wild Side in Untouched Africa

Overview

Remote and untamed, Zambia is the legendary birthplace of the walking safari, and our adventure is a match for its wonders. With consummate guide Jason Alfonsi, we truly experience all that Africa has to offer—up close and in a way that is impossible from a vehicle. Tracking game on foot is a thrill, from seeing an elephant taking a mud bath to watching waterbuck, kudu, and impala leaping through the bush. South Luangwa National Park—3,500 square miles of untouched wilderness—is as wild as it gets, but our lodges and Hemingway-style mobile camps ensure cozy comfort. Night game viewing, 4WD exploration, magenta sunsets over oxbow lakes—it’s all on this authentic experience of wild Africa.

Itinerary at a Glance

Days 1-2
Mfuwe / South Luangwa National Park

At Nkwali Camp, a lovely lodge on private land on the Luangwa River, the wildlife is all around us—the endemic Thornicroft’s giraffe is often seen near camp, and at night we may hear giraffe browsing outside our camp. With the setting of the sun, a different world awakens, revealing the nocturnal realm of lion, genet, and hyena.

Days 3-6
Walking Safari / Luangwa Valley

We’re up at sunrise each day for an exciting bush walk, with the chance to see elephant, waterbuck, hippo, and zebra at close quarters, and, with luck, the full complement of predators. From examining a bird’s nest to tracking a lion, we’ll get a deeper understanding of the fascinating bush ecosystem and how it works—it’s an incredible experience of Africa and its wildlife. Our full-service mobile camps provide wonderful comfort, from walk-in tents to delicious meals served al fresco.

Days 7-10
Luangwa Valley

Around our secluded camp with a classic bush atmosphere, leopard sightings are frequent, and it is a thrill to see one of these gorgeous cats padding through the shadows, its tail lifted high, or perched languidly in a sausage tree. Bush walks and 4WD game drives bring us to oxbow lakes and through ebony forests. Depart on Day 10 via Mfuwe or extend to majestic Victoria Falls.
