A Zambezi & Luangwa expedition

Zambia’s two prime destinations… safari in the renowned Luangwa Valley and exploration on and along the Zambezi River in Lower Zambezi National Park.

The Lower Zambezi where Sausage Tree Camp is situated, a key national park of Zambia, lies between the rugged and dramatic Zambezi escarpment and the wide and spectacular Zambezi River. The Zambezi River runs for 120 km through the park and with the protection of the Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe on the opposite side a haven for wildlife. There are many channels, lagoons, sandbanks and islands along the river and then open plains, woodland and bush areas behind the riverine strip. The river is a massive attraction and offers boating, drifting, canoeing and fishing, all with breathtaking views. For the avid fisherman, the tiger fishing (on a catch and release basis) is worth a week out here for.

The unspoiled South Luangwa National Park where Luangwa River Camp is located is one of natural jewels in Zambia’s crown, and home to one of the most varied collections of wildlife on the planet. The park is centered around the Luangwa River which is renowned for it’s pristine beauty and wildlife. The park is centered around the Luangwa River. Untapped by man, its natural ebb and flow of flooding makes much of the park inaccessible by road which keeps it a sanctuary for the large concentration of game that live there. A paradise for birders, over 450 species are to be found in the park, and the wildlife includes elephant, buffalo, hippos, giraffe, leopards, and lions.

Day 1 - 4: Sausage Tree Camp

Sausage Tree Camp is set on the banks of the great Zambezi River in Lower Zambezi National Park. With no fences or boundaries, animals freely wander through the camp, offering great wildlife viewing throughout the camp. As you fly into the area, you will see the wide Zambezi River, dotted with islands. Buffalo and elephant are always seen feeding along with the pods of hippos that rest on the edge of the sandbanks. Activities are extremely flexible and with individuals choosing from drives, walks, boat cruises, canoeing and fishing. Game viewing in the pristine Lower Zambezi National Park is superb and big game, such as elephant, hippo, buffalo and the big cats are even seen regularly in and around the camp! After a late lunch there will be a chance for an afternoon activity – be it on the river or by vehicle.

Day 5 - 8: Luangwa River Camp

You will end your Zambezi and Luangwa safari at Luangwa River Camp (or one of our other camps in South Luangwa), which sits nestled under an ancient ebony grove on the banks of the Luangwa River overlooking the game rich area known as the Luangwa Wafwa. This small and intimate camp with just five bush suites, along with its setting and location creates a real “wow” factor and a romantic feeling simply flows through the camp. A typical day consists of 2 game activities per day, with the choice of a game drive or a walking safari. Early morning is best for doing walking safaris as well as game drives and commence after a light breakfast. Once brunch and a siesta followed by teatime treats, it's back out into the park to see what the late afternoon/early evening has to offer. Alternatively, a cultural tour or trip to a wildlife education centre can be arrange, which gives one a more holistic experience of the Luangwa Valley.

Simone N about Zambezi and Luangwa Safari
We have recently returned from a wonderful safari adventure in Zambia. Everything was superb, your hospitality, food and accommodation. The travel arrangements worked perfectly. The location, standards and staff at the camp were all excellent. A job well done and the close encounters with the wildlife made it all the more interesting!
