The ultimate safari luxury is to get deep into game-rich country where there’s no-one else around. The best way of ensuring this is to head out on foot – away from roads and, and cars, any hustle and bustle.
There is a timeless quality about approaching big game on foot that touches something deep in our own psyches and the animals we encounter.
Walking safaris have been undertaken in the Luangwa Valley for over half a century – nowhere has it been done longer – and the fact that the craft evolved here is no coincidence, as the habitat is ideally suited to it – glades of riverine forest mixed with open plains, drying lagoons and perennial rivers.
On a walking mobile safari you’ll walk from one temporary tented camp to the next (your bags being transported for you), which allows the time and opportunity to see Luangwa at it’s very best. Led by one of Zambia’s top wildlife guides you sure to safely encounter a myriad of creatures great and small. The expeditionary nature of the safari and the small group size (a maximum of six) ensures a very rarefied adventure indeed.
