A Zambezi & Luangwa expedition
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 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.More about the region Learn more about Luangwa River Camp
