River Journeys is a magical safari that takes place between January and March when the Luangwa River is at its fullest, thus giving rise to some exceptional boating. 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.
Travelling on your own may sound daunting but we assure you that is not the case when you stay with us. Whether you join one of our set departures or have an itinerary tailor made to suit you needs, we have you covered. An added bonus is the absence of a single supplement unlike other establishments.
