Game Drives in the South Luangwa
Game viewing from one of our custom built, open 4WD vehicles aren’t just exciting, it’s comfortable too. High seats allow excellent all-around vision and easy photography. The vehicles have been modified to assist photographers with camera rests, super-clamp stabilisers and bean bags. Our qualified and experienced guides will take you to game-rich areas deep within the park which is not commonly visited by other vehicles.
We maintain and modify our own game viewing loops with our own tractor and grader, so we’re confident that we can show you the best that this fantastic area has to offer without the discomfort caused by bumpy roads. We’ve developed an excellent network of ‘loops’ that make the most of the forests, lagoons, plains and “Wafwas” (old courses of the river). Our guides position the vehicle in just the right spot to catch the morning sun on the source of activity – perhaps a leopard or a pride of lions.
Game-viewing starts from camp as we are in the park and our guides are quick to react to the alarm calls of Baboons or impalas. They last approximately three and a half hours and are offered morning and afternoon. Morning game drives leave around sunrise, with a tea break on the route. While evening game drive departs after afternoon tea, with a stop for a sundowner around sunset time, the drive will continue into the night to observe the nocturnal animals.
While walking safaris are a thrilling experience – the wildlife is more at ease when viewed from a vehicle providing closer encounters and spectacular photographic opportunities.
TIP: We seat a maximum of four guests per vehicle unless a group/family requests to sit together.
TIP: If you have a beanbag/sandbag that you are very fond of let us know during the booking process and bring the bag empty for us to fill for you in camp!
TIP: Our super-clamps can be unscrewed if you have a clamp addition you want to bring with you, feel free!
