Without the sounds of an engine, and with more time to contemplate surroundings, a walking safari will expand your understanding of the park's environment and the animals living within it. During our 3 nights in the park, our knowledgeable and friendly guide, Kanga, not only lead us to see more game than we expected but he also taught us about... More

Fantastic service from very knowledgeable and friendly (mostly local) staff. I truly magical experience with daily safaris either on foot or by jeep. The food was truly excellent and the staff always seemed to have surprizes up their sleeves . We could not have been better cared for or more expertly guided. A wonderful and very different experience.

We had three days at the Nkwali camp followed by their days at Tena Tena - and thoroughly enjoyed enjoyed ourselves. (I gained a few pounds -... More

Please try the camping/walking safari, this was a great experience and you are waited on and looked after just as well as if you are... More

Just spent four nights at South Luangwa River Camp where Polly and Sebastian and the whole team made our stay a wonderful experience. Nothing was too much trouble for the team, we were looked after so well. Sebastian's depth of knowledge and patience is amazing, it was a real pleasure to have him showing us all the wonders of this... More

We really enjoyed our very short stay (one night) here. Excellent food. We liked the small place, very open rooms and informal atmosphere ~ no keys. Best was that they had a boat to cross the river into the park itself. That got us into the park in just a couple of minutes, and into a part that is relatively... More
