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. There are many channels, lagoons, sandbanks and islands along the river and then open plains, woodland and bush areas behind the riverine strip.

The unspoiled South Luangwa National Park 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.

Sausage Tree Camp

Day 1 - 4: Sausage Tree Camp

Lower Zambezi National Park is nestled between an impressive mountain escarpment to the north and the mighty Zambezi River to the south. The escarpment acts as a natural barrier for the wildlife, keeping it on the plains and in the rich woodland on the bank of the river. The park is over 4,000 square kms in size and occupies 120 kms of river frontage. Situated along the forested riverbanks, Sausage Tree camp is the epitome of bush chic offering a civilized approach to a true bush experience with lavish attention to detail. This exclusive safari camp, specializes in the very best game viewing with the highest international standards in luxury and service.
If you are visiting Zambia, then the Lower Zambezi National Park is a must and Sausage Tree Camp will show you the very best of what the park has to offer.

Over the next few days, enjoy an impressive variety of safari activities, created for the ultimate exploration of this magnificent African paradise. By land, you can enjoy game drives and walking safaris, or take to the rivers and explore with boat cruises, canoeing safaris and tiger-fishing. Back in camp, the wildlife hide is great for photography, especially rare nocturnal creatures.

Nkwali Camp

Day 5 - 8: Nkwali Camp

You will end your Zambezi and Luangwa safari at Nkwali Camp (or one of our other camps in South Luangwa), which is located on the banks of the Luangwa on a magnificent meander in the river overlooking the National Park where leopards roam along the bank and can often be spotted from camp. Many places claim to be "among the remaining wilderness areas" or "one of the last wildlife sanctuaries"; South Luangwa National Park lives up to both and more. The Luangwa Valley is vast, remote and home to both people and a truly impressive variety of game.

Nkwali Camp is a small intimate and authentic camp and is the ideal start off point to any safari with a few more creature comforts than the bush camps to help ease people into the African way of life. While at Nkwali Camp, you have the option of 2 game activities per day, with the choice of a game drive or a walking safari. There is no typical day on safari, you can choose to do as little or as much as you like although we recommend at least one activity per day. Apart from the game activities, there are also some enriching cultural experiences such as visits to the local village and school to see what local Zambian life is about. A trip to one of the wildlife education centres is also encouraged.

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!
Roger H about Zambezi and Luangwa Safari
The experience was beyond anything we have ever done. Zambia is a truly remarkable place. Everything exceeded our expectations, from the outstanding wildlife, to the faultless service and the stunning locations in the Luangwa Valley and Zambezi National Park. We cannot wait to come back
