Welcome to Zambia! Upon arrival in Lusaka you will hop aboard your domestic flight to Mfuwe airport for the great South Luangwa National Park. You will be met at the airport by your Chikunto guide and transferred to the stunning luxury tented camp. You will spend the next four nights of your tour here as you discover the delights of the park and view fantastic game numbers, on your activities and even just relaxing at the lodge as the animals stroll through.
Today you will make your way deeper into the park to Mwamba bush camp. One of the Shenton Safaris camps they are famed for their excellent standard of guides who will navigate you through the wilderness in this unspoiled area to find big game, small game, birdlife, flora and outstanding scenery.

This authentic and charming camp will be your home for the next two nights of your tour.
Moving on now to the next in the Shenton Safaris portfolio, Kaingo, where you will stay for the next two nights of your itinerary. A unique selling point for this beautiful camp is the option for a ‘sleep out’! Trade in your chalet for a night as you climb up into the canopy and onto their Numbu star bed which is open to the elements. Just a duvet and a mosquito net separates you from the big African night sky and find yourself lulled to sleep by the sounds of the bush and nocturnal creatures coming to life around you. Don’t worry, there is a ranger posted nearby for your safety and comfort! (The star bed option is also available at Mwamba).
