“Too many to choose from! The elephants in the mud at Luangwa Safari House. Being woken up by lions roaring at Chongwe River House. Outstanding ...”Paige McNeil - Australia August 2010 more guest feedback
An exclusive safari experience in Zambia’s prime areas – homes away from home! If you are after an exclusive experience, perhaps to enjoy some family quality time or a getaway with friends…this safari is exactly what the doctor ordered. A combination of exclusive safari houses across the three prime Zambian destinations of South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi & Livingstone have been used. Highly personalised service is offered throughout, with all details of the safari tailored to your taste and preferences.
The Luangwa Valley, which marks the end of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the last unspoiled wilderness areas and possibly the finest wildlife sanctuary in Africa. The Luangwa River flows into the Zambezi River – just below the Lower Zambezi National Park. This park, scenically bordered by an impressive escarpment, has excellent game, which can be viewed from either the river or by land. Quietly drifting past a huge elephant feeding is a great experience. Livingstone is home to one of 7 natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls, and offers many opportunities, both adrenaline filled and more sedate, to view this amazing site. There are game viewing opportunities too, with a chance to see the white rhino in Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park and river trips on the Zambezi River.
Tips on activities on offer:
South Luangwa: walking, game drives (day and night), Kawaza Village Tour, Tribal Textiles tour (for souvenirs), Chipembele Wildlife Orphanage visit.

On arrival at Mfuwe International Airport a guide from Robin Pope Safaris will meet you. The drive to the Luangwa Safari House is just under an hour through colourful local scenes of villages, agriculture as well as bush. The Luangwa Safari House lies on the edge of a wonderful lagoon system – a highway for animals. The four rooms are all individually designed, are large and with fantastic views of the bush. The main sitting area is two storeys high and has an open view over the plunge pool and the lagoon. Lunch is served on the deck – that stretches out into the lagoon area, so you often eat lunch surrounded by elephants. Depending on your arrival time, in the day you will enjoy a lunch or if in the afternoon for tea and the afternoon and night game drive.
