A place of meandering rivers and lagoons, forests and woodlands, the southeast of Zambia is home to the original walking safari and some of the most spectacular wildlife in the world. Your journey combines three intimate Bushcamp Company properties, accessible only by foot and safari vehicle. Begin in Mfuwe and feel the solitude set in as you make your way to the spectacular Bilimungwe Camp. Continue south to the Kapamba River where you’ll stay in rustic luxury camps and spend time with the elephants, giraffe, buffalo and other animals who rely on this water source to survive. This is pristine Africa; no doubt the wilderness of the Luangwa Valley leave you yearning to return.
