Jonathan Scott & Phil Berry Safari 2011 announced

Following the hugely successful safari at Mfuwe Lodge with Jonathan Scott & Phil Berry in last November we are very excited to announce that Jonathan & Phil will be running another safari at Mfuwe Lodge from 12 to 19 November 2011.

We are proud to welcome back BBC Big Cat Diary presenter, author & wildlife photographer Jonathan Scott, who, along with renowned Bushcamp Company guide, leopard & giraffe expert & former Park Warden, Phil Berry, will be leading a very special week long trip to the South Luangwa from November 12th-19th 2011. We also hope to be joined by Wonky Tusk the elephant & her family, who regularly pass through the Lodge’s reception at that time of year. It will be the ideal week for photographers.

As well as elephants walking through the reception, the South Luangwa is well known for it’s elephant population and is where Jonathan’s wife, Angie, took the stunning photograph of an elephant family drinking in the Luangwa River, that won her the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award in 2002. The South Luangwa is celebrated as being Zambia’s big cat country and one of the best parks in Africa for leopard. Although November can be hot, it is an exciting period for wildlife activity, with wild dog and lion sightings being good in previous years, as well as stunning carmine bee-eater colonies and mixed-species bird fishing parties. When the first rains come the park takes on a fresh green appearance and the air becomes clear - the light perfect for photography.
