For active and experienced African wildlife and wilderness enthusiasts, this tour will take you to two game rich and exciting National Parks in Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Part 1: South Luangwa Walking Safari Explorer
The tour starts with the famous Luangwa-River. On game drives you will meander along the riverbanks where you enjoy extensive and varied wildlife sightings. Overnight stops in small intimate bushcamps along South Luangwa’s valley will enthrall you as you are far from civilization and in the middle of safari wilderness. Enjoy extensive walking safaris directly from camp to camp, accompanied by experienced wildlife guides and armed trackers.

Comfortable walk-in tents, complete with en-suite safari-style bathrooms with warm water bucket showers and eco friendly toilets will make sure you get a good night’s sleep, ready for adventure. Each bushcamp serves superb meals, freshly prepared on site by our well-trained local chefs. Dinner time is hosted beneath clear African skies, under a thousand stars and a small camp bar will round off the numerous safari activities. After beautiful days in the bush, a short plane ride will take you back to Lusaka, where you will prepare for the second part.

Part 2: Zambezi Canoe Explorer
Mana Pools National Park offers excellent multi-day canoeing safaris and good photo opportunities as the region combines picture perfect landscapes with close up wildlife encounters. Due to its remoteness, very few tourists have been to this wilderness region.

You will spend several days in canoes on the river, each day gliding and paddling on average approx. 20 km through thrilling landscapes, stopping at islands for siestas along the way, and immersing yourself in this remote wilderness with exciting animal encounters.
You will be accompanied by experienced canoe and wildlife guides. Evenings will wind down on islands, where Dome-Tents will be pitched and you will relax the nights on comfortable mattresses in your sleeping bag. Bush cuisine includes cooking on open fire places under the stars, and listening to the African nights sounds.
