Game Drives in South Luangwa
Custom Built Vehicles
Game-viewing from one of our custom built, open 4WD vehicles is a real pleasure. Comfortable, high seats allow superb all-round vision and easy photography. The vehicles have been modified to assist photographers with camera rests, shelves and bean bags.
Our qualified and experienced guides will take you to game-rich areas deep within the park which are not commonly visited by other vehicles.
Our game viewing loops are maintained and modified by ourselves with our own tractor and grader, so we are confident that we can show you the best that this amazing area has to offer without the discomfort caused by bumpy roads.
Morning and Evening Game Drives
A morning game drive leaves camp around sunrise. 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 etc. They 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. We have developed an excellent network of ‘loops’ that make the most of the forests, lagoons, plains and “Wafwas” (old courses of the river).
Game drives normally last approximately three and a half hours and are offered morning and afternoon. The evening game drive departs after afternoon tea. Usually your guide will stop for a sundowner around sunset time, and the drive will continue into the night to observe the nocturnal animals.
