A most wonderful holiday in all aspects. The wildlife was exceptional, with each encounter whether it was a pride of lions or a group of puku we were able to spend time watching their behaviour without being disturbed by other trucks. It was as if it was our own private park! The walking safaris were really exciting and we learn't many things about the wildlife from many signs. For anyone who is familiar with safaris in Kenya and Tanzania this trip offers a much more intimate experience
So many really but seeing the Wild dogs stood out for me as I have been to many parts of Africa and failed to see them. Another great moments was having sundowners amidst hundreds of Carmine bee eaters who performed beautifully for us.
Stephen our group leader was outstanding in every way. His knowledge of his country and wildlife was second to none. He never failed to find us something inspirational to see. It was great to have him dine with us and share his knowledge about the days viewing.
I must say that all the staff we encountered from the Bushcamp company were exceptional and showed us great hospitality and kindness.
Stock up on sleep before you go if you can as there is so much to see and hear both during the game drives and in the camp at night. Sleep for me was limited as I found every minute exciting.
You will need few clothes as the camps offer a free laundry service. Take lots of memory for you camera and binoculars are a must, because you will find yourself trying to spot something before the guides do!
If you love safaris then this trip is a must. I would love to return after the rains to see a whole different South Luangwa
Wonderful in all aspects - accommodation, food,the people who looked after us and above all the plentiful wildlife.
Sighting a leopard nearly every day.
Steve, our guide, was excellent, so knowledgeable, friendly and capable, just great.
You don't need many clothes as there is an excellent free laundry service.
We would highly recommend this trip.
This is one of the best safari holidays I have done. The excitement of seeing animals on foot surpasses any experience in a vehicle. The accommodation was fabulous and contributed to the whole interaction with the wildlife. The camps were well organised; the food was fab and the staff were all very helpful. It was a joy from start to finish.
One afternoon as I was chilling out on my verandah and a group of elephants arrived in my garden to feed on the monkey bread pods. For about 30 minutes I stood on my bed peeking out at them feeding. They were less than ten metres away. I loved the proximity of it. I could not have moved anyway as they were right on my exit.
I also laughed at the moment on my date of departure when the man who arrived for my wake up call told me "not to leave my lodge as there were 2 lion cubs on my doorstep!"
Steve was very knowledgable on all aspects of wildlife. He was well organised, courteous and responsive to our wishes. He gave us plenty time to take photographs and tried to get good positions for us to view the animals often by anticipating where the animals would move to. It is worth noting the vehicles have built in beanbags to rest your camera on so no need for tripods. Our "spotters" and the Park Guard on the walk were also excellent. They found leopard in a tree, porcupine and great views of lions. They also mixed a mean gin and tonic at sundowners!
Pack lightly. The laundry service is free. Make sure you wear the right muted colours on the walks. Take dollars as this is the most useful currency for taxes and tips. Yellow Fever Certificates were asked for although we were low risk.
For a mixture of adventure and luxury this was a top trip. I arrived very tired after a heavy spell of work. The outside world melts away here. Lying in a plunge pool watching wildlife whilst listening to the soundtrack of "Out of Africa" (what else!) was heaven. It is not a cheap trip but it is a quality one
