Passage to Africa, in association with The Bushcamps Company, offers the unique opportunity to explore the dramatic landscapes of South Luangwa National Park in the expert company of Michael Lorentz, whose knowledge of the wilds is surpassed only by his infectious passion to share it with those he guides through the depths of the African wilderness.
South Luangwa is set within the western arm of the Great Rift Valley, entrapped between the Luangwa River and the magnificent Muchinga escarpment. This journey commences in the Mfuwe region amidst some of the best game viewing in the park and evolves south through the Zambian wilderness, striking in its raw beauty and seclusion. In the depths of these pristine wilds are the bush camps, Bilimungwe and Zungulila, exclusive and intimate, nestling inconspicuously into their natural surrounds.
The wildlife abundance is instantly obvious, with concentrations of lion, leopard, crocodile, hippo, numerous antelope and the endangered African wild dog all found in the area. A highlight is the elephant concentrations, the familiar of whom famously venture through the main lodge to feast on fallen wild mangoes from October to December each year. The history of this wilderness area is inextricably linked with the pioneering of the walking safari, an incredibly insightful and intimate introduction to the particulars of the African bush.
The adventure ends at place of origin, after eight days of unrivalled wildlife viewing.
