Known as the Valley of the Leopard, it is in South Luangwa that the legendary Norman Carr, our founding father, pioneered walking safaris and conservation-based tourism in Africa. Today, our award-winning Zambian guides, some trained by Norman himself, offer guests a warm welcome to one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world.
Smell the pot of coffee on the campfire at sunrise as you anticipate the day’s activities. At sundowners, sip a gin and tonic while being dazzled by plains game under a glowing red sky. Discover the difference between lion and leopard paws as you trace your finger over their prints on the soil. Admire a family of elephants or a herd of cape buffalo on a safari drive. Marvel at the richness of 450 bird species one minute, and a pack of endangered wild dogs the next.
Stretching out over 9,000 square kilometres, and only an hour’s flight away from Lusaka or Lilongwe, this unfenced and unspoiled wilderness feels a world away from modern life.
