Set out from any of these secluded, intimate camps and you will be guaranteed an unrivalled wildlife experience in one of the last unspoilt wilderness regions of Africa – the very place where the African walking safari was pioneered.

A truly wonderful experience. The beauty of Luangwa, the knowledge and hospitality of Babette and Phil all came together to make this the safari of a lifetime

Mfuwe Lodge
"Wow! What a place ... we had the most fanastic time .... the elephants walked through reception almost as soon as we got there. The staff are all quite amazing and we felt we were part of a huge family...the Choir sang (what voices!), Nathalie and the girls at Bush-Spa were wonderful - we went every siesta! James (our guide) was absolutely wonderful! But then I could say the same of everyone at Mfuwe."
