Is the Luxury Luangwa walking trail right for you?

Consider these 3 statements below to see whether you would enjoy a luxury trail.

3_luambe-camp-luangwa-valley-1

You love the idea of walking in the wild but your previous safari experiences in other parts of Africa have turned this incredibly exciting experience into a circular “birds and turds” stroll.

This WILL NOT be like that (although we do still love our birds!).

The idea of exploring the Luangwa on foot sounds exciting but you don’t want to miss out on the treats and delights of a holiday like good cuisine, the option to have game drives and comfortable accommodation. Its all the adventure but without the discomfort. That in our minds is what makes a luxury trail.

This a hybrid package between a traditional Luangwa camp safari and a serious walking trail – it offers the best of both worlds without being too heavily weighted in either type of Luangwa experience.

Are you looking for something with more adventure or costs a bit less?

Summary of Day 2

Travel to Luambe NP and overnight at the camp

You morning will begin with a coffee and light snack. Once you are ready, you will embark on your 2-night luxury trail.

Begin your walk from camp with your expert guide and National Park’s Scout. Explore the untamed wilderness of Luambe and share space with both its small and tall inhabitants. As the temperature begins to rise your guide will expertly direct you to a shaded spot for a rest and a delicious bite to eat. The afternoon’s walk will conclude as the sun’s golden light illuminates the open-air luxury of your first sleep out camp. Sundowners and fine dining will complete your evening before heading off to sleep.

Day 4 will follow a similar pattern with a full day spent on the trail followed by a night at the 2nd sleep-out camp.
