Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Day by Day
Welcome to Luangwa National Park. Settle in at your lodge, situated on the banks of two beautiful lagoons, where giraffe, buffalo, antelope, and crocodile are constant visitors! If there's time, embark on your first evening game drive.
Rise early and set out on a thrilling 4-hour game drive to your next camp, Bilimungwe. Your chalet looks out over a waterhole that welcomes local warthogs, elephant, and other thirsty game throughout the day.
Squeeze in another early game drive this morning, while the animals are most active. Pause for lunch back at camp and then set out for a walking safari—hippo, crocodiles, leopards, and lion are likely sights!
After breakfast, make your way via guided bushwalk to your next camp. Cool off with a sundowner while you soak your deserving feet in the nearby Kapampba River.
Explore the bush today; join your guide on a safari walk or enjoy a day or nighttime game drive. Tonight, take advantage of your luxury camp—watching an elephant take a dip in the river from your bathtub is an unforgettable experience!
Take a morning stroll along the river and arrive at Zungulilia, your next camp, in time for lunch. Spend the next two days exploring on foot—prepare for breathtaking views and natural springs that attract a variety of game.
Let your guides lead you on foot through the untouched wilderness; watch herds of buffalo roam the grassy plains and thirsty elephants come to drink at the springs. Tonight, recount your adventures over a starlit dinner and cozy campfire.
Make your way via game drive back to Mfuwe Lodge. Squeeze in one final sunset safari this afternoon, or relax back at the chalet.
