7 Days Photographic Safari - South Luangwa National Park

This package features the prime wildlife area with an easy access with classic wildlife; the camps are Flatdogs Camp and Chindeni Bush camp which is under the Bush Camp Company.
When you arrive at Lusaka airport off your International flight - you will connect on a local flight from Lusaka to Mfuwe the South Luangwa national park.

For most visitors, South Luangwa National Park is by far the most practical park to visit in the valley. This is Zambia’s premier wildlife park, with superb wildlife and many excellent camps. This is where the now famous walking safaris started from over 60 years ago and this unique African destination retains some of the finest world-class safari guides.
There are many contenders for the title of Africa's best game park. The Serengeti, Amboseli, Ngorongoro Crater, Etosha, Kruger, Moremi and Mana Pools would certainly be high on the list. South Luangwa has a better claim than most. Some of these other areas will match its phenomenally high game densities. Many others – the lesser known of Africa's parks – will have equally few visitors. One or two also allow night drives, which open up a different, nocturnal world to view, allowing leopards to be commonly seen and even watched whilst hunting.
However, few have South Luangwa's high quality of guiding together with its remarkable wildlife spectacles, day and night, in the isolation of a true wilderness. These elements, perhaps, are how the contenders ought to be judged, and on these the South Luangwa Park comes out around the top of the list.

Day 1 to Day 4 - Flatdogs Camp in South Luangwa National Park

Flatdogs is a nice safari lodge and combines all the essentials when going on safari. Here you will find the rest and peace you need after an exciting safari day in combination with personalized service and a warm welcome by the camp’s team. Highly qualified safari guides will take you on exciting game drives and walking safaris, and share their extensive knowledge of the African bush with you.

Located in the Mfuwe area, just outside the gates into South Luangwa National Park, Flatdogs Camp focuses on value, its standards have improved considerably over recent years; it is now a comfortable safari camp that should appeal to many different types of traveller.
Flatdogs is a bigger property (taking up to 44 guests) than most of the camps in the South Luangwa area, and guests are not ‘hosted’ here – so visitors take their meals independently.
Set around a central courtyard, the main areas at Flatdogs Camp sport simple wooden furniture polished stone floors and muted safari tones. The open-sided restaurant is open throughout the day, with tables under cover or outside beneath shady umbrellas. Both those on a full-board rate and those staying independently select from a varied à la carte menu.
A separate open-side area incorporates the well-stocked bar, which has both high wooden bar stools and a number of comfy sofas.
The large and crystal-clear swimming pool is surrounded by sun loungers and there are various shady spots to sit and read, or take in the sounds of the bush. The pool isn’t fenced so if you’re going for a dip, be sure to check first for any hippos or crocodiles! Flatdogs Camp also has a small shop stocked with curios, books, the odd piece of clothing and essentials such as sun cream and toothpaste. You’ll find a few computers with internet access here, too, and there is WiFi in the courtyard area, both available at extra cost.
Activities from Flatdogs Camp include day and night safari drives in open-topped Toyota Landcruisers, which seat a maximum of six people in three rows. They also offer walking safaris accompanied by a guide and armed scout, usually during the drier months between about June and October.
Just like in other safari camps, the morning activity starts at about 6.00am, when the park opens, returning to camp at around 10.00am. Then the afternoon activity leaves after tea at about 4.00pm and returns to the camp around 08.00pm. During your afternoon game drive we stop for sundowners in the bush to fully experience the magnificent African sunsets. You continue with the drive in the dark which allows you to spot nocturnal animals. With advance notice day trips (with a packed lunch) can be arranged for a minimum of four people.

Day 4 – Transfer from Flatdogs Camp to Chindeni Bush Camp within the South Luangwa NP
After Breakfast you will be transferred to Chindeni as you will drive through the beauty South Luangwa National Park and arrival in time for lunch, relax and go out for your night drive.

Day 4 to Day 7 – Chindeni Bush Camp – South Luangwa National Park
A sublime tented camp on the edge of a permanent lagoon with the Chindeni Hills providing a truly breathtaking backdrop.
In an enviable location on the edge of a lagoon where hippo chortle and elephant wallow, stands Chindeni - undoubtedly one of the most beautiful tented camps in the South Luangwa.

There's something about sleeping under canvas that ignites a sense of adventure in everyone. At Chindeni you can combine that thrill with style and comfort in one of its four opulent tents. Gaze out from your private veranda onto the lagoon which attracts birds and animals from miles around. Or settle back with a gin-and-tonic in the central lounge and dining area - a glorious expanse of varnished decking arranged on several levels around the surrounding ebony trees, boasting, of course, the same spectacular view of the serene lagoon and its inhabitants.
