Day 2-3: South Luangwa National Park

These days we will spend game viewing inside the national park. We will explore the area with our game viewing vehicle. Game drives along the Luangwa River often produce spectacular sightings. Hippo families occur in high numbers in the river, unequalled in Africa.

During the dry season (July to October), many side channels of the river dry up, leaving the fish trapped. This attracts many different species of predators, such as the African fish eagle, jackal, and hyena, to mention but a few. The colourful carmine bee-eaters are often seen perching in front of their nests on the river banks. Participants are requested to help with setting up tents and loading the vehicle. You’ll be camping on the banks of the Luangwa River at Croc Valley Camp or similar (2 nights on full board basis).
